The IMA Laser edging Process offers so-far unreached aesthetics in furniture design through a jointless transition between edging and panel
No doubt about it – the laser technology is making a entrance into the edgebanding process. The quality jump is also visible to the untrained eye. Or better: »invisible«, because there is no visible joint between the surface finish of the panel and the edge* applied in the IMA Laser Edgebanding process. The market will demand this gain in aesthetics, and it will get it. Around half a million of linear meters of edgebanding tape were already successfully processed in practice using the Laser Edgebanding process developed by IMA. But the Laser Edgebanding method not only convinces through quantitative results. Also the improvement of the production quality and the increase in process safety are strong arguments for furniture producers
The diode laser system has a large electrical efficiency of almost 40% and requires less floor space. Moreover the guidance of the laser beam via fiber-optic cable is simple.
