Course: SAND200 Wide Belt Sanding Applications and Processes
What constitutes a good sand? Sanding quality is ultimately determined by the end-user, but this course defines objective quality standards, transitional and transferable to an operation’s entire team. By defining various panel materials and exploring modern sanding technology, applications, tools, abrasives, and machine parameters, participants will actively contribute to this new definition of objective quality. In addition to the introduction of theory behind the art of sanding, participants will receive hands-on training utilizing sight and touch to evaluate panel defects, identify and troubleshoot their origins, and establish a regular auditing process to guarantee generations of consistent results.
