The CONTURO Edge Bander

With the new CONTURO Edge Bander, it's just just as easy to apply edge banding on the job site as it is in the shop. Even if you have a large stationary edge banding machine, the CONTURO can complement your edge banding process by giving you a way to work with radii, circular pieces, bevels and small pieces.

The CONTURO offers exceptional ergonomic design, including dual speeds, and a unique hot melt glue adhesive system. There's no risk of burns because the glue system is thermally isolated.

Ditch the iron or hot air gun to and gain the benefits of a dedicated edge banding machine without the cost associated with stationary equipment.

Adhesive System

Achieve the perfect application of edge banding with the CONTURO's advanced electronically controlled adhesive system, which applies the correct amount of glue every time for optimal adhesion and quick drying.

Loading glue pucks or changing adhesive colors is a quick, easy, mess-free process. Only the adhesive needed is heated, preventing discoloration and allowing for quick warm up times.

The quantity of glue applied can be easily adjusted from the display interface, which also shows the amount of banding that can be applied with the glue in the machine. So, you don't accidentally run out.

The silicon drip cup catches any extra glue and is easy to clean.

Adhesive Colors

The Festool CONTURO Edge Bander uses hot melt glue pucks, which are offered in a variety of colors to match your application and edge banding. Currently, adhesive is available in black, brown, natural and white.

The machine takes about 8-10 minutes for the adhesive to be ready to use when first turned on. Even quicker if you've recently used the edge bander.

Changing colors is a quick, mess-free process that only takes minutes.

Glue is evenly distributed, preventing waste while optimizing adhesion and drying time.

Edge Banding a Radius or Corner

Curves add a touch of elegance to a piece, but are a challenge for edge banding. But not with the CONTURO Edge Bander.

The CONTURO is capable of applying edge banding to a curved edge with an inside diameter as small as two inches. Of course, outside radii can also be edge banded quickly and easily with no adjustments to the machine.

Inside corners are equally as easy with the CONTURO.

Feedback at Your Fingertips

The CONTURO Edge Bander features an LCD electronic display to keep you informed and to configure the machine.

The display has information that shows how much edge banding you can apply with the amount of hot melt adhesive currently in the machine, the current temperature, and the speed setting (slow or fast).

The four option buttons below the display allow you to configure the settings for the CONTURO edge bander. Adjust the temperature, amount of adhesive being applied, metric or imperial measurements, and other settings.

The display also shows important information, such as when the edge banding has been properly inserted and is ready. The display is red on the machine during the roughly 8-10 minute warm up period.

Edge Banding Station

With the optional CONTURO MFT/3 Table, you can convert the CONTURO into an edge banding station. Perfect for working on small pieces that would otherwise be hard to navigate with the CONTURO in its handheld configuration. The station is also well-suited for working with beveled edges.

The CONTURO can be installed into the table in just a few seconds and then removed again for a quick transition between handheld and stationary use.

Ready to Edge Band in Minutes

The CONTURO Edge Bander takes approximately 8-10 minutes to be ready to go from a cold start. That means you spend more time applying edge banding and less time waiting. Quick, simple processes for changing edge banding or adhesive make the CONTURO a highly productive machine.

Perfect Results

At the end of the day, what's really important are the results. And, the CONTURO in unison with the rest of the perfect edge system deliver exceptional results with ease and speed.

The components of the Edge Trimming Kit and the MFK 700 Trim Router combine to produce beautifully crafted edges to your work.

Eliminate the time spent reworking mediocre or poor results from other methods by upgrading to the Festool perfect edge system with the CONTURO Edge Bander.
