Edge-folding machines for defined corners and edges

The edges of laminated, back-pressed or back injected lining components for automotive interiors place special demands on manufacturers. Clean and aesthetically flawless application of decor elements and precision folded edges are necessary to achieve the required product quality

Kiefel offers mature technologies for a range of requirements:

  • Edge-folding using cold tools and contact adhesives
  • Edge-folding with adhesive activation via hot air or infrared technology for dispersion or hotmelt adhesives
  • Adhesive-free edge-folding through carrier part plasticization

 

This additional refining process ensures that the decor material has a clean and crease-free edge with minimal gaps to the adjacent components.

 

Our edge-folding machines support you with precision, economy and repeatable results.
