At Rex Lumber Company, we pride ourselves on offering a wide range of wholesale and custom moulding options. In fact, we provide nearly limitless customization options.
When it comes to mouldings, we understand that you need options that fit the needs of whatever project you’re working on. The right moulding should work for any practical or design-based application that you need it for – and is the key to producing a perfect finished product.
We have been an industry leader in producing mouldings since our first moulder was installed in 1956. Today we operate 10 moulders company wide, each of which has specific capabilities to match our customer’s diverse needs. These capabilities include high speed machines that are design to run quantities exceeding 5,000LF, and the capability to run mouldings up to 11-1/2” wide. Annually we run over 20,000,000 LF of mouldings.
To produce a moulding, a blank must first be ripped and surfaced to a standard size, a minimum of 1/8” of an inch wider and 3/16” thicker than the finished profile. The blank is then fed into the moulder where the profile is cut into the blanks using between four and seven moulder heads. On most of our moulders there are two heads on the top, two on the bottom, one on the left side, and one or two on the right side. Each of the heads holds at least two knives that can be straight or have a profile ground into them. Each of these heads spins, on a shaft or by direct drive, and cuts a profile into the wood. When it feeds out the other end, the blank has been milled into a finished profile. Additional options include Priming, Profile Sanding, and Custom Finishing. Custom finishing is available on all mouldings!
