Ranges of application

The VACUMAT EdgeCoat® was developed for the wood processing industry for processing massive wood edge strips, door edges and rabbets, veneered and foiled edges, medium-density fiber-board edges, etc.. However, the machine concept makes it possible to coat other material. Please contact our application experts for further information concerning your needs or questions. For application use outside the wood processing industry Schiele offers the VACUMAT SpecialCoat®, a technically perfected machine concept that is universally usable.
