Kaletech offers comprehensive systems for the application of thermoplastic hot-melt adhesives, reactive adhesives or cold-applied adhesives during the production of wooden products and furniture.

Specially adapted contact slit nozzles have an application width of up to 2.6 m and ensure maximum performance and durability, e.g. when coating profiles or laminating boards. Adhesives can also be applied using one or more beads or by spraying. Accurate compliance with tolerances during the manufacture of furniture is ensured by systems for the control of applied adhesive quantity. The programme also includes specific solutions such as a system for wood repairs or edge banding.

Contact us. We will design a tailor-made adhesive application system for the wood-processing industry for you and provide training in its use. You can rely on our service, or try the technology in advance in our rental shop.

Typical applications for the wood-processing industry
  • Profile wrapping
  • Edge banding
  • Repairs of wood defects
  • 1K-PUR Application Systems
  • Cover board/layer gluing (lamination)
  • Upholstery installation
  • Assembly gluing
  • Parquet sound transfer attenuation
  • Pin/dowel gluing
  • Wedge assembly

Assignment

A furniture manufacturer contacted Kaletech with the requirement to deliver technology for the application of a cold adhesive for anchoring construction bolts. This operation had been made manually so far.

Solution

The solution consisted of an automatic application system for a dispersion adhesive using an industrial robot. The gluing device control unit communicates with the robot and applies the adhesive precisely in the required amount depending on its movement.

Results

Thanks to this solution, the customer acquired a work station operating with sustainable quality and higher production. They saved 6 workers, who can now be utilised for other production activities.

Assignment

The customer's requirement was to upgrade a 50-year-old formwork machine. Compared to standard production, the edges had to be banded to avoid penetration of moisture in the formwork.

Solution

Kaletech managed to synchronise the operation of the machine with a modern adhesive application system, thus making the original obsolete machine competitive again. 

Results

Thanks to the retrofit, the customer can continue using their production technology. In this way, the need to make a considerable investment in a new production line is avoided.
