In keeping with their philosophy of thinking outside the box Festool has again demonstrated that they’re the most innovative tool company on the planet with the release of their new edge banding system, the Conturo
The Conturo allows for the easy and clean application of a variety of thicknesses and widths of edge banding (lippings) to all types of manufactured timber boards including ply, mdf & chipboard.
As well as handling straight edges the contour easily applies branding to bevels, internal and external curves.
The attached videos from Festool UK will help you explain the machine in greater detail so if you’re interested please take the time to watch them

The Conturo has been released in the UK and from what Ive heard it’s doing fairly well there. Festool Australia have advised me that they don’t have a release date or pricing yet, but looking at the UK pricing I’d guess that it will retail for around the $3900 to $4450 mark.
Like all Festool Tools it’s got a fairly hefty price but looking at what the tool can do it’s sure to be a time saver, particularly on site.
As more information comes to hand I’ll post it on this site so watch this space…..
