Electronically Controlled Panel Cleaning Products

For more than 25 years RIEPE in Buunde, has been developing and producing electronically controlled spraying systems together with the appropriate chemical products, for the woodworking industry.

Doellken offers the RIEPE panel cleaning products in North America complimenting the company’s edgebanding and adhesive offering.

The RIEPE products eliminate manual panel cleaning. The spray nozzles can be retrofitted into most edgebanders and the use of RIEPE release and cleaning agents provides a superior panel finish.

Release Agent Spraying Unit

Riepe cleaning productsUpstream of the formatting unit, an ultrathin coat of our special release agent LPZ/II® is applied to the top and bottom face of the workpieces (edge area) by means of an electronically controlled release agent spraying unit. This prevents squeezed out glue from adhering to the workpiece.

An ultra-thin application of our release agent in the edge area (consumption per fine spray nozzle: 1 litre for 5,000 running meters) guarantees a perfect result. The electronically controlled release agent spraying unit only requires a 3 bar compressed air connection and a 230 V outlet.

Our special release agents are adapted to all commercially available glues. The picture on the left shows the installation of the spraying unit outside of the cladding, upstream of the formatting unit with a suitable holder.

On the opposite machine side the unit is connected to the longitudinal fence by a corresponding holder.

The release agent spraying unit can be also installed in the cladding, directly in front of the formatting unit, with a suitable holder. Our fine spray nozzles are insensitive to dust. For this reason, they can be used directly in front of the tools.

Cleaning Agent Spray Unit

Riepe cleaning productsThis unit is used to spray our special cleaning agent LP163/93 on the top and bottom face of the board edge (edge banding material). The cleaning agent applied at the machine infeed side and the loose glue residue are removed by the application of the cleaning agent and subsequent buffing.

The glue joint and the edgebanding are cooled. Heat generation during buffing is considerably reduced by the application of the liquid. Smearing of glue emerging from the joint is avoided. The edgebanding radius is wet buffed with the special cleaning agent. As a consequence, heating of the thermoplastic material is notably reduced, and plastic smearing is prevented. Moreover, the radius is polished to match the surface gloss.

This result can only be obtained when the buffing disc is used throughout the entire width of the board without oscillation. The buffing disc must be used with an inclination in relation to the workpiece of 3°, stationary (without oscillation while applying slight pressure). Rotational direction in synchronous run to reduce heat Generation.

Consumption per fine nozzle: less than 1 litre for 5,000 running meters. The electronically controlled cleaning agent spraying unit only requires a compressed air connection of 3 bar and a 230 V socket.
