A carcase press
contains a massive frame that can be adjusted in a variety of ways to fit the measurements of the piece of furniture. This ensures that the edges and corners of the wood are not damaged. The use of a carcase press can ensure that the pieces of furniture are perpendicular. First one must align the machine, secondly put in the glued furniture body, and then pressure is placed upon the glued area by the carcase press using either a pressure cylinder, spindles or levers. Once adjusted, the carcase press
can also be used for mass production. Collapsible furniture that needs to be self-constructed would not need a carcase press to be manufactured. However, they are much more unstable and do not last as long as furniture that has been built with a carcase press.
