The first step of the manufacturing process involves a two-way hydraulic hot press of the assembled core veneers without a face to make them. The veneers are then sent for calibration in an imported calibrated machine, to get uniformly thickened plywood. It is then repressed again with a face to get a perfectly finished calibrated plywood. Some manufacturers also rely on sanding machines, glue spreaders, and more to get the desired result.
