The most important highlights at a glance
Productivity, flexibility and user comfort
Time, the most important resource in a modern workshop was the main focus whilst developing the tempora machine concept. Processing edges needs to be as quick, easy and efficient as possible. To achieve this, the tempora models combine the core skills of speed, productivity, flexibility and ease of use in a convincing complete package. The final finishing results when processing both coiled and strip material convince with incredibly high standards, that fulfil the ever increasing demands of edgebanding complete processing.
Modern and optimised edge processing aggregates and a flexible machine body guarantees absolute stability and reliability even at the highest of processing speeds. The user friendly control options, "x-motion plus" and "m-motion" ensure absolute repeatability and individual configurable operating programs enable quick manual change of the aggregates as well as control via the smartouch control panel.
The patented "advantEdge aggregate" brings "invisible joints" to your workshop. You can equip your tempora with a single or dual motor corner rounding unit and there are three free spaces for your choice of finishing units. The smartouch intuitive control unit with a 10 "or 16" touch screen ensures maximum operating convenience and productivity.

Depending on the application, coiled and strip material from 0.4 up to 6 mm can be glued to panel materials up to 60 mm in thickness. An infrared sensor recognises whether edge material is available and the magazine for the automatic feeding of strip material using the needle roller has a capacity of 120 mm.
smartouch control unit with m-motion
The new smartouch control unit with 10.4" touch-screen and m-motion control enables a quick and easy selection and control of the aggregate as well as the complete monitoring of all machine functions.
smartouch control unit with x-motion PLUS
smartouch control unit and network connection reduces the manual settings to a minimum and enables a quick, easy and intuitive selection and control of the aggregate as well as the complete monitoring of all machine functions from the screen. The functions of smartouch include amongst other things:
- Unlimited memory for user-defined edge programs
- Maintenance plan, odometer for total metres of material used
- Simple, self-explanatory representation of the units and their functions
- Aggregate selection, exact fine adjustment of the motor positionable aggregates (accuracy of up to 1/100 mm) all from the main control panel
- Glue temperature setting and automatic temperature reduction of the glue whilst in standby mode Now available with a monitor size of 10.4" and 16"
Ensures a perfect “finish”
Two counter rotating, activation controlled and individually adjustable premilling units with diamond coated spiral cutters ensure first class edge processing before the material is glued to the edge. With the premilling unit you will achieve tear free edges when processing laminated material. After entering the exact dimensions, the premilling unit executes a perfect edge cut on your panels. The depth of cut can be electronically positioned on all of the e-motion models as standard.
Gluepot – short warm-up time, quick operational readiness
The Teflon coated gluepot for PUR or EVA glue has a 1.5 kg capacity and as such around 375 metres of edge material can be applied to a 19 mm panel. The short warm-up time of only 10 minutes guarantees quick operational readiness. As an option, the scraper cleaning unit can be integrated into system which speeds up and facilitates the cleaning when changing between glue types.
Format-4 advantEdge for an optical zero-joint
The patented advantEdge aggregate from Format-4 enables the optical zero joint when processing co-extruded edge and laser edge material. The aggregate is controlled by the workpiece and can be activated and deactivated directly from the control unit. advantEdge offers the homogenised optic finish of the workpiece with the panel and edge material, in particular with high gloss material. An edge material suited exactly to the material ensures a zero-joint line and as no time-consuming glue change of various colours is required, you profit from considerably reduced changeover times.
Pressure zone – Practically invisible glue-joint
Solid in its design, the first operation controlled motor driven roller presses the edge material on to the workpiece. The application control ensures that there can be no smearing of glue or movement of the edge material whilst processing. The two conical pressure rollers close the glue joint above and below. From the control panel, two pneumatic pressure settings can be selected: Solid strips with less pressure, coiled material with more pressure.
End trimming unit
Precise cuts for every application
The end trimming unit consists of two independent saw units with high-frequency motors (12,000 rpm). Linear guides ensure maximum precision. The end trimming unit tilts from 0° to 10°. Depending on the machine specification, tilting is regulated manually or pneumatically via the control panel (e.g. 10° bevel cut, front only, rear only or front and rear).
Multi-functional trimming unit
Innovative precision with quick setup
The multi-functional flush, radius and thin-edge bevel trimming unit consists of two independent trimming units with high frequency motors (12,000 rpm). Linear guides guarantee the highest possible precision with little maintenance required. The easy adjustment and setup of the unit means that it is extremely quick to change between different edge thicknesses and profiles. Depending on the equipment option chosen, the multifunctional trimming unit can either be adjusted manually or pneumatically, controlled via the control panel.
Radius scraping unit
The radius surface receives a light scraping, removing any remnants from the trimming process and ensuring a smooth “finish”. The fine adjustment is manual. The radius scraper unit can be disengaged either manually or pneumatically from the control panel, depending on the model. On all of the e-motion models, the fine adjustment is carried out on the colour touch screen.
The unit is made up of two independent electric motors, which are equipped with cotton brushes. The task of the buffing unit is to clean and polish the top and bottom part of the edge. The buffing unit gives a super finish for ABS and PVC edging material. The machine can, on request, be equipped with spraying equipment to apply polish onto the workpiece.
Electronically controlled glue scraping unit
For a perfect surface finish. The light scraping function of the surface scraper knives removes all glue residues from the glue bond on the workpiece surface. One more step towards the perfect and completely finished workpiece.
Spraying equipment for the perfect “finish”, leaving a workpiece requiring no further processing
Low consumption guaranteed due to application controlled spray nozzles to apply separation solution for PUR glue, antistatic solution and lubricant for sensitive edging materials and cleaning agents and polish for clean workpieces and a perfect “finish”.
for an improved edge adhesion when processing cold workpieces
The operation controlled, high quality quartz infrared lamp warms the edge surface in front of the glue unit. This guarantees that the edging adheres to cold workpieces.
The “Nesting” Package optimises the processing of workpieces with hinge borings or surfaces with acute angles.
On both of the models (”m-motion“ and ”x-motion PLUS“), the pressure beam is positioned using a handle. The position of the pressure beam can be read precisely using the digital counter.
Variable setting of the depth of cut of the premilling unit. With both equipment options, the settings are carried out manually using an indicator clock. The variable depth of cut can be adjusted and set between 0–2 mm.
Save twice the space.
The Format-4 storEdge offers space saving storage of your edge material, replaces the edgebander support plate and can be placed next to the machine as and when required.
The practical edge storage system "storEdge" can be additionally equipped with a support plate.
Format-4 storEdge including support
Your most important edge material, always at hand and stored with ease. With the optional support plate your edgebander can always be loaded with edge band material.
