Edgefolding: Adhesive-Based

Edge Folding

Adhesive-based tooling technology

The adhesive-based edge folding process differs depending on which adhesive is used. Some adhesives need to be activated and others do not.

FRIMO's Product Portfolio:

With adhesive activation: FRIMO edge folding systems permit heat activation of the adhesive in the following technical configurations:

  • Hot air channel system
    • for adhesive activation in the edge folding area and for decorative material heating
  • Heated sliders
    • for heating through the decorative material into the boning joint
  • Infrared heating
    • via infrared flash radiators for heating the edge folding area

Without adhesive activation: This process uses either contact adhesives or hot-melt adhesives that are applied shortly before edge folding and are already active. Temperature controlled sliders are used to apply the adhesive.

A quick look at the benefits:

  • Technology neutral consulting
  • Tailor-made, efficient solution
  • Minimum space requirement due to compact modular system design
  • High process reliability
  • Durable edge folding adhesion due to optimal process selection options
