Combima

edge banding with laser technique for furniture construction

 

Edge processing at the highest level: that’s what our Combima panel sizing and edge banding combination machine stands for. No matter if the laser technique (IMA Laser Edging process) or conventional edge banding with glue is used, the result is always superior. Thanks to modern edge banding and accurate edge processing, the Combima is not only suitable for kitchen and furniture construction but also perfectly matches the requirements for worktop fabrication and door construction, i.e. for the entire woodworking sector. The fine finishing process, which is carried out after the edging tape is applied using glue or the laser technique, is designed to suit exactly the needs of the customer. This makes the Combima an individual and unique machine for edge processing, including edge banding by glue or laser technique, which meets all requirements placed on furniture construction.

 

Edge banding with laser technique

If the laser technique is used in the edge banding process, there will be no joint that is typical of the conventional edge banding process. Hence, aside from a perfect visual appearance, the laser technique also increases the strength of the adhesive joint and its resistance to liquids and high temperatures. The laser technique, a new process, is becoming a standard and indispensable for ambitious furniture construction and edge banding.

 

Edge banding ends only after fine finishing

Fine finishing means accuracy on every corner: the Combima is an all-rounder! After the laser technique has joined the edging tape and the wood part, the fine finishing process is the next step in the edge processing sequence. In this process, the workpiece is given the final touch with a number of precision units – for an all-around perfect edge banding result as demanded by the furniture construction industry. If the laser technique shall not be used temporarily, the edge bander can also apply ABS, PVC, PP and PMMA edging tapes using PUR and EVA glues. High-gloss edgings on acryl parts and veneer surfaces will not pose a challenge either. The choice between the laser technique and the glue method for optimal edge banding in accordance with the demands of the customer is standard at IMA. All this ensures numerous possibilities to choose from for edge banding in furniture construction.

 

 

Batch production in furniture construction
edge banding for high-quality and high-volume lines

Words that arouse enthusiasm in the furniture construction industry: double-side edge banding! This stands for batch production and significantly shorter processing times of the edge banding and edge processing operations. Aside from this strength, the all-rounder has one more trump in the field: the machine quickly sets itself up to perform the required machining on each part, simultaneously ensuring both capacity and flexibility. Two times edge processing and edge banding with laser technique on one machine: this is the amalgamation of quality and quantity.

 

 

Edge banding for batch size 1 in furniture construction

The single-side Combima, which is the embodiment of batch-size-1 production, elevates flexibility for edge processing in furniture construction to a superior level. The state of the art in furniture construction is edge processing, including edge banding with laser technique, on parts with ever-changing dimensions – and the Combima can do it. The result is overwhelming unequalled flexibility that is appreciated by global customers from the furniture construction industry.

Edge banding and edge processing for the industry

The furniture construction industry places great demands on high-quality edge processing solutions. Our edge banding with laser technique has been developed for exactly this challenge: no matter if bathroom or kitchen furniture, postformed or softformed panels, any task in furniture construction can be accomplished. And thanks to the laser technique, the furniture construction industry manufactures products which are unbeatable in terms of visual appearance and serviceable life, the highest objectives in edge processing.
