The happy Thomaseth family with the Weinig Management Board
Staircase manufacturer Thomaseth Treppenbau walked home with a Weinig Cube Plus four-sider, the grand prize of the lucky draw held during LIGNA in May.
The machine was presented at Weinig’s summer festival at its Tauberbischofsheim headquarters.
“The Cube Plus, with its high-quality four-sided processing based upon a simple operating concept, epitomises the philosophy of our planing machine range,” Gregor Baumbusch, Weinig Chief Sales and Marketing Officer said.
More than 2,500 prize draw cards were submitted for the draw, which was held in recognition of customers’ loyalty in 2016.
The four-sider requires no set-up and is 10 times as fast as a traditional jointer and thickness planer. The MoulderPreView, which projects the desired dimensions onto the unmachined part, produces significant time savings. Other benefits of the machine include rapid dimension changes while the machine is running. Thanks to the EasyLock system, setting of the straightening spindle and tool changes can be completed in a matter of seconds. Where necessary, an automatic stacker ensures continuous processed of unmachined parts with one-man operation. With its compact dimensions, the Cube Plus fits in any workshop and can be easily moved to another location at any time using a forklift. Thanks to its “plug and play” connection, the machine can be ready for operation within minutes.
“We will be using the Cube Plus for manufacturing elements for the substructure of our staircases,” Thomaseth said.
