LUMINA 1596 industry edgebander: Laser edging technology with three equipment versions

Edgebander Holzher Lumina industry 1596 zero joint

The LUMINA industry series offers a unique combination for processing panels: Two systems for perfectly invisible joints. The Glu Jet glue application system for standard use of PUR glue and the LTRONIC, the new laser edging unit from HOLZ-HER, are unbeatable in terms of speed and cost efficiency.

The LUMINA 1596 premium model with two cutter units allows processing of solid wood edging with thickness up to 15 mm (optional 20 mm). The LUMINA 1596 grooving serves for fully automatic grooving in the vertical and horizontal direction. With this machine, the groove position and groove depth can be set fully automatically on two NC servo-axes. The standard equipment on the LUMINA 1596 flex includes a corner buffing unit for perfect edge finishing without any subsequent work.

Technical Details

iTronic for intelligent automation

iTronic operating components

1. Adaptive trimming blade

Full adaptive trimming blades with automatic pressure adaptation to match edge thickness and height. Your advantages:

  • Always the right pressure for different types of edging
  • Prevents unnecessary vibration
  • Reduces wear

2. Automatic pressure unit

The contact pressure of the individual pressure rollers is adapted perfectly to the application by an intelligent pneumatic system. Your advantages:

  • Reduces reject quotas to a minimum
  • Eliminate sample workpieces
  • Optimum machining results even for continuously changing applications

3. Automatic glue quantity control

Automatic, requirement-adapted control of glue quantity with program selection: Always optimum glue application for:

  • Various types of panels, e.g. chipboard or MDF
  • Various panel thicknesses
  • Various feed rates
  • EVA or PUR glue
  • Adaptation to processing parameters for glue from different manufacturers

4. Automatic cleaning routine

Integrated, fully-automatic purging routine for PUR glue at the touch of a button on the control. This process completely purges the machine, full automatically, with the correct quantity of cleaner, at the right temperature and contact pressure. (Cleaning is required after 48 h = PUR reaction time).  Your advantages:

  • Best system on the market
  • PUR glue always under control
  • Avoids errors during cleaning operation

5.  Remaining glue quantity indicator

The remaining quantity of glue as well as the running meters that can still be processed are automatically monitored by a special sensor in the system and displayed to the operator on the control. Your advantages:

  • Operator knows how many running meters can still be produced at all times
  • Professional supervision of the cleaning process
  • Optimization of remaining quantity of glue in system at time of cleaning process.

fa.s.t. setting technology

fa.s.t. or "setup in the gap" is one of the major themes for efficient edging operations. fa.s.t. enables you to run different machining processes at the same time on the edgebander. For example, it is possible for the operator to switch on the corner rounding unit intelligently, without having to empty the machine for the set-up procedure.

SYNCHRO edging feed

SYNCHRO edging feed

SYNCHRO edging feed

The edging magazine with synchro-drive. With its synchronous adaptation to the feed rate, this edging magazine guarantees short intervals between workpieces and simultaneously optimizes edging protrusions.

Small feed angle thanks to nozzle design - easy feeding of solid wood edging up to 20 mm.

Jointing cutter

Jointing cutter

Cut edging often has small tears in the top layer. The jointing cutter unit ensures perfect glued surfaces and prepares the panels for the gluing process. Equipped with two 70 mm dia. diamond tipped cutters with AirStream technology (HOLZ-HER / LEUCO Patent). Including HSK32R chuck. For greater rotary precision, to provide smoother running, longer service life and preserve tools and motor.

With symmetrical diamond tipped cutters (dia. 100 mm) for maximum joint quality and long service life. Automatic height adjustment with two NC servo-axes.

LTronic - laser edging change-over unit

Ltronic laser edgebander - perfect invisible joints with laser edging
Ltronic laser edgebander - perfect invisible joints with laser edging
Ltronic laser edgebander - perfect invisible joints with laser edging

LTronic laser edgebander

The LTronic laser edgebander was developed especially for the LUMINA series and processes all edging with functional layer on the market. Two different NIR modules are available for processing laser edging:

  • NIR module for edge heights up to 23 mm (standard)
  • NIR+ module for edge heights up to 45 mm (optional)
    (NIR = Near Infrared Radiation)

Switch it on and it's immediately ready for use – the new Ltronic unit does not require a heat-up time or any heat-up phases during the machining process. In addition, the complete system operates absolutely silently which is a clear advantage for the user compared to other systems. Moreover, cleaning costs are minimal. The integrated protective plate on the NIR module needs to be briefly cleaned just once per week.

A highlight is the edging library completely integrated into the control. All of the very latest co-extruded and subsequently coated edging are already stored here as a factory-provided item and can be simply selected by the user via the standard touchscreen. Each laser edging needs a specific energy entry, which, by way of an example, depends on the edge thickness or the color. After the selection is made, Ltronic automatically adjusts the respective energy requirement. HOLZ-HER takes perfect care of all of that with its edging library.

Glu Jet automatic - change-over gluing station

Heat-up, glue change and cleaning require only 3 minutes each

Automatic replenishment


  • The pressure cylinder presses the cartridge or granules against the heater elements. After reaching a certain position, the sensor sends a replenishment signal to the control. As long as glue is being applied to a workpiece, charging is delayed until the work is finished. The pressure cylinder retracts automatically, a new cartridge or fresh granulated material is gravity fed from the cartridge supply shaft into the heating chamber where it is again pressed against the heating elements.
  • Purging hole for automatic cleaning system – e.g. cleaning out PUR glue.

The Glu Jet automatic is attached to a set-up carriage alternating with the LTronic unit as a glue application system with automatic change-over. Change-over is accomplished within a maximum of two minutes by a high precision interface with HSK chuck and CNC technology.

Glu Jet PUR 2K adhesive application system

High melting capacity for even higher feed rates

Developed for professional processing of PUR glue in large quantities with invisible joints

With the Glu Jet, you can process standard commercial  2 kg PUR glue cartridges, which are significantly more economical than conventional PUR granules or the smaller 300 g PUR glue cartridges. This investment amortizes itself quickly for companies using more than approx. 500 kg of PUR glue per year, i.e. customers with an average glue consumption of approx. 2 kg per day. This corresponds to a processing quantity of approximately 100,000 running meters per year. The savings for glue costs alone already amortize the machine during the second year.

As accustomed from the Glu Jet, the heat-up time is unbeatably short - now only 3 minutes for the Glu Jet.

The new glue station is designed as a changing station with HSK adapter. This allows the station to be removed easily using a change-over carriage, making it even easier to clean the glue application nozzle.

Technical Highlights:

  • Integrated, fully-automatic purging routine
  • Motor-driven nozzle height adjustment
  • Remaining glue monitoring
  • The control continuously indicates how many more meters of edging can still be processed with the current filling.
  • The station can be precisely cleaned at the touch of a button with the right purging volume as well as correct temperature and purging timing.
  • Glue melting capacity 60 mm workpiece height x 6000 mm workpiece length at 20 m/min

Glu Jet advantages

  • Invisible joint look using new thin film technology
  • In addition, Glu Jet’s low maintenance requirements and energy efficiency reduce costs
  • The sealed system prevents unpleasant odors due to escaping glue vapors
  • Heat-up time only 3 minutes
  • Waterproof quality for your entire production
  • The PUR glue can remain in the system for up to  48 hours
