In achieving that aesthetically appealing finish to panel board-based furniture, there is a need to apply edge tapes (PVC, veneer, ABS, etc). Edge banding machines are used to apply these edge tape materials to the workpieces.
The process of edge banding involves applying glue to an edge tape material, pressing the edge tape to the workpiece edge for bonding, trimming of the excess tapes on all sides and polishing the edges to add a shine to the surface. Additional features such as pre-milling, scrapping, grooving, etc can also be added to the process to further enhance the eventual output.
Available edge banding machines differ from each other primarily in the areas of application and capabilities. Basic models are intended for small manufacturing facilities, where automation is not a necessity. However, to the facilities where speed and accuracy are key, the best choice is automatic machines that allow for edge banding of not only straight elements but also curved workpieces. Working with automatic edge banding machines is also very convenient and is done through an electronic controller.
Woodmetal edge banders are versatile, easy to operate, durable and produce a superior edge finish, all at an affordable price.
