Spray Glue Booth
In the engineered wood industry, your spray operations directly impact production efficiency and product quality.
Applying the proper amount of adhesive to wood veneers is critical. Our spray glue booth system for glue application delivers — spraying glue uniformly with minimal overspray, and adjusting to accommodate changes in line speed.
We offer a full range of automated adhesive application systems for engineered wood panel and other products.
Liquid Extruded Glue Applicators
Liquid Glue extrusion allows for an exact spread width of adhesive to be applied to the veneer.
This application leads to no wasted glue and minimal additional clean up. Each system is equipped with a proprietary precision spread control with an adjustable electronic metering at each station.
The liquid glue extruder uses a standard resin mix similar to a curtain coater application. The glue used is a little different from a spray glue formula, because it will form strands instead of breaking into droplets as it leaves the extrusion head. Liquid glue stays in a closed loop system until it is applied to the veneer.
We’ve also developed compact extrusion heads that allow for a full view of the glue application process. There is a wide range of extrusion heads and automated systems to optimize the process for manufacturers of plywood, particleboard and other wood products
Foam Extruded Glue Applicator
The advantages of foam glue start at the glue cost. The average savings is documented at well over 10% and most mills have seen more than a 20% difference over spray application.
Using air to extend the glue (the volume is increased 7 to 1) is the secret, and the glue bond is the best in the industry. Dry out time is extended as well, and the stacks can be set aside for hours if needed before going into the hot press.
