  • Error messages are presented in plain text, to avoid the need for endless error code lists.
  • Eliminates many mistakes caused by lack of operator skill.
  • Latest technology offering many exclusive features and demonstrating HOLZ-HER’s continued leadership in the market.

MODEL 1901 EDGESTRIP MAGAZINE                

  • 1 (one) universal magazine for solid edges, strips, and coiled material.

  • Automatic guillotine for coiled material up to 4.0 mm.


Includes servo motor adjustment for glue height

  • Equipped with HOLZ-HER'S exclusive patented "GRANULATE" glue system. This is a CLOSED APPLICATION SYSTEM in which the glue is enclosed in an air- tight chamber and cannot oxidize, discolor, burn, or become contaminated with wood dust.  This allows for optimum glue adhesion.
  • Glue applied to panel by patented GLUE NOZZLE from 6-60mm workpiece thickness.
  • Precise control of all functions including begin and end of glue line, height of glue line, bottom of glue line, volume of glue and face melt temperature.
  • Programmable Logic Control for feed speed changes.
  • Less maintenance - no glue pot to clean, fewer parts.
  • Efficient glue consumption - virtually no waste.
  • Efficient power consumption - uses less than half that of conventional glue pots.
  • Fastest & easiest glue color change, 5-10 min.
  • Fastest heat-up time in the industry, 3-5 min.
  • No fumes or other environmental hazards.
  • Machine can be used for trimming without heating up the glue section.


  • With 3 individually controlled pressure rollers pneumatically synchronized to panel leading and trailing edge.
  • One of the rollers is cylindrical and two are slightly conical to provide maximum pressure at the top, bottom, and middle of the edgestrip.
  • Motorized  adjustment for edgeband thickness automatically controlled via PPC controller.


  • End Trim Unit complete with (2) 3/4 HP motors running on solid, polished bars with linear bearings and heavy rigid motor mounts for precision trimming. (up to 20 mm thick)
