Casadei Busellato introduced the new ALA 20 S edgebander, a versatile entry-level machine designed to meet the needs of the small shop and custom manufacturer.
“The compact footprint, 1-phase electrical, quality of application and affordable price tag make the ALA 20 S a great entry-level edgebander for manufactures who need to upgrade from hot air or hand edgebanding,” Casadei product and distribution manager Thomas Tuck says.
The machine comes standard with a Teflon-coated glue pot, PLC control system and top and bottom trim system. It can apply tape, .5mm to 2mm PVC and wood or laminate strips. It sells for $13,000.
The machinery supplier also unveiled a redesigned Xenia 60 sliding panel saw. “This can be used by woodworkers at their primary cutting source for most cross-cutting and ripping applications. It’s a very industrial machine that will tolerate a full day’s work,” says Tuck.
The saw offers has a full 10-1/2’ stroke and 59” rip capacity, 15-hp main motor, digital readouts for positioning and overhead guard with dust extraction. The Xenia 60 sells for $18,950.
