Production Upgrade
Production Upgrade Pre-Mill Station
Sometimes, when cutting pieces for edgebanding, the thickness of the edgebanding tape is not calculated and this creates gaps during installation. The Pre-mill station tapers off a layer of the material that is equal to the thickness of the edge banding tape. As a result, your final edge banded material will have the same size as the original material you fed into the machine. The pre-mill also cleans up rough edges if you cut your parts with a table saw. Adding a pre-mill station upgrades your model into a Badger 5800 [see in 3D here].
Anytime Upgrade
Anytime Upgrade Return Conveyor
The Badger is designed to easily connect to a return conveyor, which brings back edge banded material as long as 100” (8 feet), back to the operator for non-stop edgebanding.

Not a lot. Most of the technical adjustments needed will already be pre-set during installation. After your air, power & dust extraction are hooked up, there is little to do but to make sure you have enough consumables (glue, cleaning liquid, lubrication, edge banding tape), and to measure the size of your materials and set them on the machine. Anyone can be trained to use the Badger in just a few hours.

Since there are countless types of main and edge banding materials, the perfect settings to get the results you want, based on your unique materials, can only be finalized after a few ‘trial & error’ runs. Thankfully, the Badger has independent motor controls for each step of the edge banding process, so it is highly customizable. All you need to do is turn the control knobs on each station to adjust settings.

Here are the main difference by features:

Polyurethane, or PUR, is a synthetic material made up of many organic units connected by urethane links. PUR used in adhesives is also known as PUR reactive adhesive, reactive hot melt, reactive polyurethane or RPU adhesive. PUR adhesives combine flexibility and the initial speed of a hot melt with the strength (greater than 1,000 lbs) of a structural adhesive. They are one-part formulations that require no mixing and rapidly reach handling strength with no need for clamping— bonding well to wood, glass, ceramics and many plastics.

PUR is solid at room temperature and liquefies at high temperatures. Once it’s heated and liquid, the Badger 5600 applies it thinly between the edgebanding and the substrate material, and is then trimmed, scraped, and buffed for a cleaner finish. The bond PUR forms occurs in two stages: (a) it reaches holding strength when the adhesive cools back down after a few seconds and solidifies, and (b) when it reaches structural strength as it cures over the next 24-48 hours.

When applied properly by the Badger 5600, it can create a seamless “invisible” joint or “zero glue line”. PUR can also dry clear— making it easy to hide glue lines and give the appearance of continuity in a glued material.

PUR is better than your typical Ethyl Vinyl Acetate (EVA) hot melt edgebanding glue because:

  • It creates a stronger and lasting bond with difficult substrates. PUR hot melt draws moisture from the substrates and the atmosphere and cures to form a structural bond that is stronger than most other adhesives, including water-based adhesives as well as other hot melt adhesive formulations. It works well with different coatings & inks; materials different from each other; and hard-to-bond, non-porous substrates.
  • It is water and chemical-resistant. It can bond with water-repellant substrates and is perfect for outdoor use or areas near sinks. Its continuous bond line prevents the migration of fluids, dust and dirt. It does not allow bacteria to grow in cracks and crevices and is optimal for hospitals and medical office applications.
  • It is solvent-free. It has low to no volatile organic compound (VOC) content so it has no explosion or fire concerns, is more environmentally friendly, and is easier to transport.
  • It can be applied thinly. You get more surface area coverage with PUR compared to EVA for the same amount of product. It can spread perfectly even and will not create imperfections on the surface, even on thin and high-gloss materials. And since only a thin layer is applied, the bond is more flexible... and can be hard set or rubbery once cured. Adhering to new materials and distributing stress along the entire bond area helps designers use thinner and lighter materials as well.
  • It does not re-melt or delaminate once cured. This tolerance to a wide temperature range (from -20°F to 350°F) makes it suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Once set, it can be sanded or painted and it will not shrink or curl.
  • It is melted and applied at a much lower temperature. This benefits edgebanding tapes that are temperature sensitive which can melt and distort at higher temperatures.
  • It’s easy to use. No mixing or measuring required and it does not need any catalyst or hardener during the curing process. There’s also no drying time so you get a faster production rate.

PUR is applied using an open roller pot system and can be costly in terms of maintenance and cleaning. The cleanup process is longer— the pot must be drained and the adhesive allowed to cure overnight before the pot can be reheated and any remaining adhesive removed. The adhesive pot may require recoating as often as once every three years. The system also allows for greater amounts of glue spoilage.

No. Your substrate material can be instantly fed into the Badger Series.

Yes. The Badger 5600 has a melting pot you can use for EVA; the PUR glue line station is independent from the main edgebander. You can switch between EVA or PUR via the Badger 5600’s touchscreen controls.
