Weinig Dimter presents a newly-designed PPL II 2500 gluing press which improves productivity, flexibility and efficiency while offering the advantage of a simple one-man operation.
The machine is used in the production of furniture as well as fitted kitchens, table plates and general interior fittings. Staircases, doors and frames can also be produced on the gluing press. With its different levels of equipment, the press can be ideally adapted to individual requirements through to the ultimate discipline of HF gluing.
The PPL II 2500 has a horizontal press bed which means that individual lamellae do not need to be fixed or clamped. Depending on the level of equipment, in the particularly compact Basic or Comfort version the wood is simply front-loaded or laid on the feed table and fed to the press bed. The press bed is emptied automatically via a clearing strip or conveyor belt.

The machine can be operated either via two-hand operation or a touchscreen. Different processes are also available for gluing according to requirements. The basic version offers roller glue application from a rolling gluing station. Powered and synchronised infeed and outfeed transport ensure even glue application and prevent smearing. The feed speed is adjustable, allowing it to be easily adapted to work and cycle times.
There is also a semi-automatic glue application system. The main benefit of this is simple handling of the lamellae via a conveyor belt. The resulting precise glue application reduces glue consumption of up to 50%.
At the top end of the equipment option is automatic glue application with subsequent fully-automatic layer formation of the glued lamellae. Even pressure ensures that the gluing press achieves particularly high gluing quality.
The standard version of the PPL II 2500 can press panels between 1,150 and 1,350mm in width and a length of 400 to 2,500mm in a single run. Lamella thicknesses of 10 to 60mm can be processed.
