Maximizing Adhesive Application Efficiency in the Woodworking Industry


Meler offers complete solutions for the application of thermoplastic and reactive adhesives in the furniture industry. Each installation is unique, but all manufacturers share common production challenges for which Meler’s know-how offers a solution.

Adhesive application technology in the woodworking industry allows for significant improvements in humidity and temperature, and also improves the mechanical strength of materials. However, achieving a facility for the effective application of industrial adhesives is not always easy. Meler, a specialist in manufacturing complete bonding systems, highlights the key aspects to achieving profitability in this business.

Easy-to-clean technology to reduce maintenance costs

The production capacity of working lines and the quality of the final product largely depend on good maintenance. It is essential to facilitate “in situ” cleaning tasks thanks to total accessibility inside the machines, offering greater modularity in the design of the components to guarantee the user-friendliness and autonomy of the line operator . Meler easy-clean technology stems from user experience to optimize daily work in a 100% safe environment.

Energy efficiency and glue maintenance

The right technology allows precise control of the bonding temperature of adhesives, as well as the quantity needed for each application. We talk about “sticking on demand”: a technology that guarantees minimum energy consumption and also keeps the adhesive in perfect conditions, avoiding the costs associated with poor maintenance. The Meler range of fusers offers this functionality even in situations of high production demand thanks to its non-stop design, which allows the adhesive to be reloaded without having to stop production.

Specific solutions for each application

The needs of manufacturers depend on the characteristics of their production processes. While some choose to use more economical adhesives, such as EVA to bond the edges, others prefer to use PUR due to its resistance to water and heat.

In recent years, Meler has seen a growing demand for closed systems with lamination applicators due to their maintenance and cleaning benefits. The market is changing and the essential thing is to know how to support customers in their production problems, by offering them a full range of specific solutions.

Focke Meler is a group of companies founded in 1988, present in Spain, France, Italy, Germany, United Kingdom and United States, dedicated to the design and manufacture of solutions for the application of hot melt adhesives and sealants in many industrial sectors. .
