Edge Coating:

so many solutions, which is best for you?

How many companies face the need to perform this task and how many ways are there to coat or seal an edge? We have a number if solutions depending on your product, the material, its shape and how you intend to finish the edge. The technologies for edge coating range from spray coating to roller coating, vacuum coating and even digital printing.

Before investigating different technologies, take a look at our primary solution, combining exclusive features and patented devices which set us apart from the competition.

Smartedge – the complete solution

Smartedge combines coating and filling with sanding of straight and shaped panel edges in a complete solution, providing a cost-effective, top-quality alternative to manual processing. Using patented Inert Coating technology, MDF and chipboard panel edges are filled, sanded and coated using a self-adapting roller coating solution or patented vacuum injection technology.

Because edge processing affects the entire panel coating process, it cannot be seen to be of secondary importance. Efficiency for large-scale production, flexibility for just-in-time requirements and consistent quality is crucial to match the panel finish.

When fitted with our patented Edge & Go system, consisting of an application head with interchangeable straight or shaped slats, Smartedge will coat edges of any type. Edge & Go lets you change the edge shape without turning off the vacuum tower. In terms of speed, switching from a straight edge with a 3 mm radius to a J-Pull handle edge, for example, takes less than 15 seconds.

Spray coating of edges

Panel edges can be coated by a Cartesian spraying robot such as iBotic whose spray guns with movement around 5 axes can be programmed to adequately coat the edge of a panel moving through the spray coating zone in tracking mode. iBotic is a high-capacity solution ensuring excellent coating quality and a superior degree of flexibility.

Roller coating of edges

Generally speaking, roller coating machines only coat flat surfaces. Equipped with a soft roller, bevelled edges can be processes satisfactorily on a roller coater. For example, the bevelled side of parquet flooring, where the bevel reaches up to 4 mm. Straight edges or edges with small radii can be coated using roller coating technologies. Our patented soft vertical roller automatically adapts to the shape of the edge without the aid of a template.

Vacuum coating of edges

Frequently used, vacuum coating technology is probably the most widespread method, not only to coat but also to seal edges, protecting them from humidity. Our solutions range from the Talent patented vacuum system which seals the shaped edges of laminated panels. The following products are compatible: water-based coatings, UV cure water-based products, UV-100%, sealants (wax, paraffin, glue).

Frequently Asked Questions

边部涂装怎么做?

完整的边部涂装工艺包括油漆、腻子填充和砂光,通常需要专门的边涂设备完成。我们针对边部涂装设计和开发了Smartedge智能边涂系统,可一站式完成油漆涂敷、填腻子和砂光工序。可根据客户的具体需求如边部形状、产品类型和生产力等自由配置相应的生产线。

和封边相比,边部油漆涂装有什么优势?

使用涂料封闭边部可以确保板面和边缘融为一体,在喷涂过程中隔绝蒸汽和水分。油漆板的质量通常比封边板更好。

边部涂装可以使用什么技术?

边部可以通过真空涂装和辊筒式涂装两种方式处理,具体选用哪种工艺,取决于边型和产品类型。可加工材料包括中密度纤维板、贴面板、复合贴面板或原木。

我可以涂装哪些边型?

边缘类型通常由其形状定义:当前的技术已经可以覆盖市场上出现的所有边型。

可以加工哪些类型的材料?

MDF, veneered, reconstituted veneered or wood edges can all be processed. Chipboard products can also be assessed for edge coating.

可加工MDF中纤维板、贴面板、复合型单板或木边。刨花板产品也可以做边部涂装。

什么是最合适的边涂方案?

对于弧角直边和异形边工件,需要采用真空涂装技术,确保高质量涂装效果。但是,如果是弧角较小的直边工件,使用辊筒技术更合适。

我的产品边型厚度不一,是否有机器可以加工所有边型?

Cefla的标准边涂机可以加工厚度在5-60mm之间的工件。

清洗设备需要多长时间?

边涂机不需要像辊涂机或喷涂机一样频繁清洁:事实上,除非需要更换底漆或面漆,否则只需清洁真空涂漆头或辊筒即可。如果需要更换颜色,那么清洗真空机头或每个辊筒需要15分钟。

在边涂工艺中,可以控制油漆耗量吗?

目前可以手动控制油漆耗量。

I have a very flexible production set-up. How much time do I lose setting up the machine for production changeovers?

Where there is a specific need for high flexibility, the configuration of the machine (i.e. the number of application and sanding units) determines the machine-set-up time, which can vary from 10 to 30 minutes.

边涂机需要经常保养维护吗?

边涂机每月固定维护项目包括:传输带清洁、滚珠轴承垫润滑和所有水平和垂直运动的金属零件。

 

我可以在边涂线上轻松管理工件吗?

Smartedge配备自带100个作业程序的可编程逻辑控制器(PLC),可以记录生产数据(加工件数、米数、工作小时数)和带式/轮式砂光机的输入输出、刀具速度和传输速度。

How can I boost productivity?

When you need to raise productivity, you can proceed in two ways:

  • reduce coating and sanding unit setting times to a minimum
  • increase the number of machines to reduce product handling                
边涂机的灵活性如何?

With the patented Edge & Go system, consisting of an application head with interchangeable straight or shaped slats, you can coat edges of any type, making the Smartedge machine highly flexible and user-friendly. Edge & Go, incorporated in Smartedge, lets you change the edge shape without turning off the vacuum tower. In terms of speed, switching from a straight edge with a 3 mm radius to a J-Pull handle edge, for example, takes less than 15 seconds.
