The revolutionary simple, clean and economically highly profitable, FORMAT-4 tempora glueBox: PUR-edge banding without glue pot. This glueBox for the Format-4 tempora F600 60.06 edgebander makes the processing of PUR glue easier and more effortless than ever before. Heat and water resistance, a very small glue joint as well as reduced glue consumption – all advantages of the PUR-glue can be used uncompromisingly with the glueBox. The PUR drawbacks such as complicated processing, dirty and hardened glue pots, annoying cleaning as well as the complex storage are a thing of the past with glueBox.
“Thought outside the box and improved” – that’s the best way to describe the revolutionary Format-4 development. Instead of the PUR adhesive in the glue pot of edge banding machines, a thin PUR adhesive strip in the glueBox is fused almost invisibly between the edge material and the workpiece.
