Straight edges, curved edges – Biesse has a zero glueline solution for edgebanding of both.With more and more manufacturers upping their game and increasing the quality of the products they make, it’s not hard to see the appeal of a zero glueline.
There are numerous ways to reduce an unhygienic and unsightly glueline between the edging tape and the surface of a board but, unless you’re going to encapsulate the entire board with a coating, there’s only one way to eradicate it completely: fuse the two together so there is no join.
Biesse offers two solutions: Airforce for straight panels; Rayforce for curved components. Airforce is Biesse’s hot air fusion system for straight line edgebanding operations and it works very simply by blowing hot air at a temperature of between 520 and 580 degrees onto a co-extruded edging tape.
The heat melts the co-extruded adhesive layer, affixing it to the edge of the board, and simultaneously welds the edge of the tape to the decorative material on the top surface to create an absolutely seamless finish.
