The machine comes equipped with an anti-adhesive unit positioned prior to the pre milling unit. It prevents the buildup of glue on the top and bottom of the panel. The unit comes with two independent nozzles and a tank of anti-adhesive liquid

“QMS” Glue Station

Automatically supplies the glue pot with the proper amount of glue on demand. The level of the glue in the glue pot is monitored by a sensor insuring the proper level. The pot is smaller, the glue is turned over faster as a result. The hopper holds in excess of 10 lbs. of glue and has sight glass to see what the level is. Teflon coated glue pot to facilitate glue changeover. Warm up time is approximately eight to ten minutes.   

An additional quick disconnect glue pot is included with the machine.

SGP Glue Pot with CNC Control of the Glue

Quick heat up time due to the small glue pot. Reverse rotation of the glue roller for the application of solid wood. Double Thermo Regulation for easy use of both EVA and PUR glue. Color change and glue pot cleaning are able to be completed in minutes, as opposed to hours. CNC control of the amount of glue being applied, specific to the program, is standard. Through the controller the operator can change the amount of glue being applied depending on the substrate of the panel. The purging process is CNC controlled as well when changing glue colors or going from EVA to PUR glue.

There are a total of four pressure rollers for pressing the banding to the workpiece edge. The first roller is powered and applies pressure pneumatically. It is also Teflon coated to prevent the banding material from slipping. The three idle rollers have opposing one-degree tilt to provide extra pressure along the top and bottom edge. The unit comes standard with a servo driven motor for positioning. This eliminates the need for the operator to manually adjust the unit and helps reduce changeover time. The pressure section is also equipped with pneumatic jumping so the unit activates exactly on the leading/trailing edges. Standard is the edge detecting sensor that will shut down the feedtrack when there is no material present to be applied. Equipped with I-Glue, locks the glue roller in place at the end of the panel eliminating any excess glue.

Infeed Fence

The infeed fence has a mechanical digital indicator to position the fence and determine the stock removal. It is also equipped with a pneumatic panel spacing device to prevent the operator from feeding the panels to close to one another

Air Cushion Table at Machine Entry 

Air cushion table located at machine infeed to help facilitate the loading of panels, especially panels of large dimensions. It includes the extension of the machine entry infeed fence. It is not possible to have the narrow feed option on the machine. Table dimensions are 1,600mm x 600mm.
