The RAUKANTEX applicator is suitable for applying edgeband coated with hot melt adhesive. It can be used from the right and the left, for coating both a right and a left corner. There is a guide shoe located at the point the edgeband exits the unit. This positions the edgeband at the right height to the board. There is also a pressure pin fitted to this guide shoe that ensures that pressure can be applied directly into the corner. This enables a secure bond to be achieved between the edgeband and the board. An edgeband guide is fitted where the edgeband is fed in. This guide is adjusted to the width of the edgeband.
