Automatic Edge Bander

  • When you hear the words' automatic edge bander, you might wonder what the term means. Bander is the industrial term for brush guard. These protective structures are used to protect the edge of an assembly or machine part from the wear that can occur as a result of constant handling. Different types of machines and parts require different types of guard. Automatic edge bander covers most common types of machines.

     

    There are several major companies that make industrial edge banding machine. The most well-known is Bosch. However, other companies such as Mecke and Festool also produce high quality automatic edge banders. Some manufacturers make the automatic edge banders with interchangeable bander parts. This feature allows the user to customize the guard to match the specific part or brand of machine.

     

    There are many benefits to using an edge banding guard. They prevent damage from occurring on the edge of an assembly by keeping sharp edges out of the gap that would otherwise allow debris to penetrate the material. Bander guards are often used in applications where the material will be in direct contact with an object at a high angle. For example, these guard styles are often found on excavators, cranes, and forklifts. They also are useful in protecting against dust and debris that may collect at the edge of a machine's blade.

     

    Some types of automatic edge banding machines are made to be self-cleaning. This means that they must remain fully clean of debris and dirt before they are ever used again. They also perform better under higher levels of pressure and heat than other types of protective guard. This is because the dirt that collects is much easier to remove when it is not pressing against the metal surface as it does with lesser guard materials.

     

    The material of choice for fully automatic edge banding machine is stainless steel. Because it is non-corrosive, it is often placed inside a protective guard that has a coating of zinc or chrome. This combination of rust resistance and cleaning ability makes stainless steel a great material for this purpose. Brushed stainless steel can even look similar to wood grain and is often used for such applications as floor finishes as well as furniture upholstery.

     

    There are many manufacturers who offer automatic edge bander products. The best way to narrow down your selection is to speak to someone who has experience in this area. Not only will you get a better understanding of what the different types are capable of doing, but you can also determine which types are best suited for your own application.
