Hot air edgebanders.

The ability to create a seamless or "zero" joint on panels made woodworkers take notice of laser edgebanders at Ligna 2009 and 2011. At this year's Ligna, May 6-10 in Hannover, Germany, compressed hot air edgebanders, a lower-cost alternative to laser banders, were introduced by several companies, including Biesse's AirForce, photo, Homag's airTec, Felder's LaserEdge, and Hebrock's Airtronic, available from Martin Woodworking Machines. Like laser banders, the forced hot air edgebanders heat a co-extruded edgebanding material to create the seamless edge. The hot air banders can also use glue pots to perform more traditional edgebanding using EVA or PUR glues.
