Everything related to edgbanding, including materials and adhesives were discussed recently at Madison College as more than 60 manufacturers, vendors and others gathered to learn how to attain that perfect edge treatment for wood panels.
Madison College’s Cabinetmaking & Millwork Program partnered with the AWI-Wisconsin chapter to co-sponsor this one-day seminar which featured in-depth presentations and demonstrations from Rehau, Kleiberit Adhesives and machinery supplier Biesse-America.
“Demystifying the Dreaded Edgebander” was the over-riding theme of the February 18th event held at the college. While the program has an edgebander, Biesse-America chose to ship in a mid-size Jade 225 edgebander just for the seminar so they could feature additional options.
“Our plan was to cover all the basics of edgebanding, while at the same time getting as in-depth as possible with a topic that can be somewhat of a mystery for many manufacturers,” Patrick Molzahn, director of the Cabinetmaking and Millwork Program at Madison College, said. “All of the participants reported being extremely satisfied.”
The Cabinetmaking & Millwork Program at Madison College hosts three to four seminars annually open to the public. This seminar was the largest yet, with 63 attendees. These seminars offer tremendous networking opportunities for students and employers.
“The topic for our next seminar has not yet been determined, but we are always open to new ideas and presenters”, said Patrick Molzahn. “We have one of the best facilities in the country and can demonstrate just about any process.”
