The infeed guide, in the inlet area of edge banding machines, feed the workpieces to the correct position on the conveyor track. The edge of the workpiece to be processed is positioned flush against the infeed guide and then fed along the guide to the transport chain. In this process the infeed guide is normally moistened with a lubricant, so that the workpieces can be fed smoothly into the machine. In most companies unsuitable lubricants, for example silicone-based, are sprayed imprecisely onto the infeed guide. The result is a permanent soiling of the machine inlet. Key elements such as the chain plates or rubber components may be damaged.
The RIEPE® LUBE PEN with its sponge applicator, enables a precise and direct coating of the infeed guide. Because of this new, easy and effective development another edgebanding process is optimised.
