Edge Bander

An edge bander (also known as an edge banding machine) is a woodworking equipment used in the process of applying decorative bands to the edges of wood-based panels. This includes plywood, particleboard, or MDF (Medium-Density Fiberboard).

Basically, edge banding serves both functional and aesthetic purposes, as it covers and protects exposed edges of the panel, while also providing a finished and polished look to the piece of furniture or cabinet.

Edge Bander Key Features

Here are some key features and functions of an edge banding machine:

  • Edge Application: Edge banders are useful for applying strips of material (usually made of PVC, ABS, and wood, among others) to the edges of a panel. This covers exposed edges and provides a finished look.
  • Gluing: Edge banding machines typically apply adhesive to the edge of the panel and the edge band itself. 
  • Trimming: After applying the edge band, the machine often has trimming units that remove excess material from the top and bottom edges of the panel.
  • Fine Trimming: Some advanced edge banding machines have additional fine trimming units that provide a precise and smooth edge finish.
  • Scraping and Buffing: Some edge banders also come with scraping and buffing units. This allows users to remove any imperfections, excess glue, or rough edges.
  • Edge Preheating: Some edge banders can preheat the material to improve adhesive bonding.
  • Panel Thickness Adjustment: Users can also adjust the machine to accommodate different panel thicknesses.
