Special Glue Thread 7880 X for joining plywood cores

Guided by this principle, KUPER, the internationally operating manufacturer of veneer splicing machinery, recently developed a special Plytape for the whole range of core composers available on the market. Based on the experiences gained over many years in the production of glue threads for the zig-zag technology, the KUPER product range was now extended by a special Glue Thread for the joining of plywood cores.
The especially developed heating system for applying the glue thread in combination with a precise pressure device guarantees high-quality joints in the KUPER core stock composer CVX already in production in the European plywood industry. The quality, knowhow and the wide range of applications of this special Plytape allow the use of this product in machines of other manufactures so that all producers may benefit from the advantages of this thread.
