GRAND RAPIDS, MI -- Stiles Machinery Inc. has scheduled the first U.S.  demonstrations of the Homag laserTec edgebander for October 19 and 20.

The Homag laserTec applies edgebanding via a laser that activates a glue layer contained on the edgebanding material. According to Stiles, the result is a finished edge with superior bond strength and aesthetics, as well as increased heat and moisture resistance.

The Homag laserTec edgebander that will be demonstrated also has a glue pot for applying traditional edgebanding materials.

Stiles will host the live demonsrations along with the new Ligmatech return conveyor from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on October 19 and 20. Lunch will be served.

Attendees who would like to see their samples run on the Homag laserTec are encouraged to contact Stiles in advance.

To register, contact Kerry Reister at or at (616) 698-7500.
