EDGE FOLDING
THE PERFECT FINISH.

We think ahead of the curve to finish your products using a reliable process without rework, and with perfect edges. We don't have a one-size-fits-all solution; instead, we have a variety of unique solutions, which can be seamlessly combined with other technologies. This helps us efficiently achieve your highly-complex tasks.

EDGE FOLDING TECHNOLOGY OVERVIEW

Clean edges create a better appearance and higher quality

We think ahead of the curve to finish your products using a reliable process without rework, and with perfect edges. During edge folding, excess decor is wrapped around the edges of the part and glued to the back. This improves the appearance and assures the quality of the part.

If an adhesive is used, it is activated with utmost precision by a segmented 3D hot air or infrared heater. Material tolerances can be regulated through the use of our specially-developed FRIMO edge fold sliders.

 

Adhesive-free applications use heated sliders or hot air.

We offer a variety of custom solutions, which often can be combined with other technologies, such as punching, joining, or various quality assurance processes. This helps us achieve your highly complex tasks. Process reliability is ensured at all times through continuous process parameter control, resulting in a very low-maintenance process.
