The new generation of Weinig planing machines and moulders will make their Milan premiere. Their outstanding feature is the perfected machine operation. The ComfortSet concept significantly simplifies production, achieving material gains in efficiency for the customer. Numerous settings can be made tool-free. Even the entry-level Powermat 700 version of the new generation offers very high performance with a spindle speed of 7,000 rpm in the standard version. The Powermat 1500combines the benefits of smaller machines as well as offering a plethora of needs-oriented equipment variants thanks to its rigorous modular system. This includes the numerous potential spindle configurations as well as the PowerLock tool holders with a variable speed range from 4,000 – 12,000 rpm.
The compact Weinig Cube has become synonymous with simple planing and work pieces perfectly processed on four sides in a single throughfeed. The machine will be exhibited at Xylexpo in the next stage of its evolution. The Cube Plus is equipped with a large touchscreen display for even better operation. There are also further innovations in the controls and tool changes. Thus, the Cube Plus underlines its claim as the easiest planing machine to operate worldwide with processing times several times faster than a straightener and planer. Noise emissions have also been reduced significantly. An automatic stacker at the outfeed of the machine enables profitable one-man operation.
The Weinig Product Unit Cutting will also be represented in Milan with a number of machines covering a wide range of applications. The user-friendly FlexiRip universal longitudinal circular saw will be on display. The FlexiCut undertable cross-cut saw for pre-cutting will also be presented, allowing Weinig to demonstrate how the FlexiRip can be extended into a cutting center for one-man operation. Also on the Weinig stand will be the highly-automated, new OptiCut S 60 pushfeed saw which, with a cross-section capacity of 280 x 225 mm, is positioned on the cusp of the high-performance class. Weinig’s exhibits in the Product Unit Cutting will be completed by the VarioRip310 M multi-blade rip saw with innovative RipAssist Pro width optimization and the BKS heavy-duty band resaw.
Naturally, Weinig window production technology will be in the spotlight once again in Milan. In the Conturex range, Weinig offers a comprehensive system for each performance class that sets standards worldwide either as a single machine or as a linked complete system comprising a cross-cut saw, scanner and pre-planing machine.
