Novimat Compact – edge banders for getting started with industrial fabrication

High-quality, simple to use

Our Novimat Compact R3/L12 edge banding machines enable you to get started with industrial fabrication in a highly professional way. These edge banders deliver the highest quality in edge processing with minimum floor space requirements and at a lower price. They can master all aspects of edge processing and perform necessary tasks with the required edging materials perfectly by automating essential functions.

Novimat Compact L12

For coiled materials and solid wood lippings

The Novimat Compact L12 more than meets the requirements of industrial edge processing. The edge bander that allows you to apply solid wood lippings up 12 mm thick as well as coiled materials using EVA or PUR glue ensures high product quality and is easy to use. All processing units of this machine have optimal motor power. This allows for high availability paired with excellent repetition accuracy and service life.

Novimat Compact R3

For coiled materials

Our Novimat Compact R3 allows you to apply coiled materials using glue, such as EVA or PUR, or a diode laser. The included spare location can be fitted with a grooving, smoothing or sanding unit. Thanks to its good standard equipment, flexibility and automation, the Novimat Compact R3 is an edge bandier that performs its tasks with absolute reliability. In this process, feed speeds of up to 25 m/min and a quick glue change using the tried and tested IMA quick-lock system enable the machine to perform cost-effective, high-quality edge banding without any restrictions.
