  • Base: I-BEAM FRAME provides the whole machine and work units, with stability and strength to allow precise, accurate machining.
    Integrated automatic chip removal system along the whole machine.
  • Panel movement: provided by a conveyor large industrial track pads and heavy duty Top pressure beam, combining a system that ensures optimum hold-down of the panel being processed, straight movement and resistance to side loads resulting from the forces when applying the edges.
  • The conveyor Track utilizes an industrial chain with a 31.75 mm ( 1 ¼”) ratio, with track pads made from a special self-lubricating techno-polymer.
The Track pads slide on two hardened steel guides, one with a circular section and the other one flat, complete with grease fittings for easy maintenance. The panels being edged are held by special low wear rubber pads with a high friction coefficient, which are individually interchangeable with a quick change system. (Pad dimensions are 80x60 mm).

The panels being edged are held in position by a double row of rubber staggered wheels with 32mm center to center spacing and mounted on precision bearings. The top working units are attached to the top presser and adjust automatically with the positioning of the top pressure beam itself. The top pressure beam movement is a centralized, with manual positioning via hardened steel guides and bushings. 
  • Lateral sliding panel support on bearings. It includes extruded aluminium guide complete of support wheels. Quick manual positioning and locking system.
  • 4000207 Full protection safety hood with LIGHTS covers the entire length of the machine. It is made of extruded aluminium frame work with wide open surfaces in transparent polycarbonate for the complete view of the operating units.
  • Centralized dust extraction connection. (150mm)
E4000220 Increased Motor Power FROM 3,4 kW on
The Pre-Milling unit is utilized to clean the surface of the panel to be to be edged. The use of this unit insures a Clean / Flat even surface which will ensure a Clean / Tight thin glue spread. Also utilizing this unit will ensure  a chip free finish thanks to;
  • Horizontal and Vertical movement on Linear STAR guides
  • Independent automatic “jump in & out” of the two cutter heads
  • Independent copy shoe system
  • Unit is complete with 3 mechanical high precision mechanical digital indicators and adjustments.

Applies the hot melt glue onto the panel, feeds the edge to be applied to the panel being machined, automatically cuts the rolls of edge-banding material to length and presses the applied edge ensuring that it adheres perfectly to the panel.
The system includes:
  • VC-511R Glue reservoir and glue spreading roller. The spreading roller is complete with a copying system to apply the correct amount of glue to the panel. The manual glue spread adjustment (dual position) for quick change. Manual device for the quick exclusion of the glue reservoir. No adjustment required when the panel thickness changes. Quick heating and double thermostat control for proper temperature control.  The glue reservoir is completely coated with non-adhesive material for ease of maintenance.  Automatic glue temperature lowering in the glue reservoir when the machine has been idle for a set period of time. Glue roller application rotating in the same direction of the panel feed. Quick change of the glue reservoir for an easy maintenance or color change / type of glue.
