Workers operating this machine are restricted to loading the workpieces and the transporting the processed workpieces away. If assistants are briefed, they can also help to supply the machine with the binding agent and veneer strips. Most machines contain good features to ensure easy cleaning and maintenance. Depending on the capacity of the workers, they can undertake further tasks in relation to the machine, such as fixing the machine when it is jammed. However, tasks such as changing the tools, installation and programming of the machine should only be done by a qualified industrial mechanics. What is problematic with a double-sided edge banding machine is that the processed products can hardly be touched up. Wrong or dirty work conducted by a double-sided edge banding machine can therefore quickly result in scrap products.
These are special machines that are not as widely used as conventional machine tools. They are only used within a specific sector and are therefore rare, meaning that even the second-hand machines are very expensive.
