Areas of application

Profiled mouldings

WEINIG Anwendungen

Our core competence

Profiling mouldings of all types has always been WEINIG’s core competence. Profiling includes a wide range of end products that nevertheless set the same challenges for machine technology: high levels of profile precision with excellent surface quality and regular cuttermarks.

WEINIG technology is always setting new standards in this area. The basis for this are the solid machine bases with precise machine tables and the fence at exactly the right angle to this. The superiority of the WEINIG machines is seen overall when dynamics are brought into the equation: spindles with high true running accuracy, a strong feed system and the corresponding pressure elements.

The perfect interaction of these components guarantees smooth transportation in a defined position through the machine. The result is the legendary WEINIG quality of your products: high profile precision, excellent surface quality and regular cuttermarks.

Window production

WEINIG Anwendungen

All stages of the processes on one machine

Profiling window scantlings on the long side and the cross side of the window scantling, and shaping and drilling are carried out on the processing center that outputs the fully processed scantling. However, the moulder still has an important role in window production as it is needed for 4-sided planing of the window scantling, to remove and to profile the blank glazing bead.

The WEINIG Powermat has a special window package that was precisely designed to complete these three process steps. Using the press of a button the user can select whether the four sides should only be planed or whether the blank glazing bead should be removed as well. Safety prompts ensure that an adjustment can only be carried out when there is no work piece in the machine and that there will be no collision between the saw blade and contact pressure elements. The PowerLock system means that the machine can be retooled in a very short time so that the glazing bead can be profiled.

The WEINIG system also enables the moulder to be connected to the cross-cut saw and the processing center. Thus, WEINIG offers the ideal solution for window production because it is the safest and most efficient.

Pallet production

WEINIG Anwendungen

The Euro pallet has become an indispensable resource for transporting products and goods. As a result the production of pallets is an attractive market segment. However, pallet timber is not only planed on four sides but they also have chamfers that make it easier for the forklift to pick up the pallet. WEINIG offers a very efficient solution for pallet production, namely the jumping spindle that jumps in and out of a work piece. The basis for this is precise measurement, which allows the jumping spindle to be clocked at the right moment. The parameters of the chamfer, length and position on the work piece, can be defined by the machine operator.

The WEINIG solution with exact measurement and the dynamic spindle ensures that all chamfers have the same length are in the same position on the work piece. In addition, the “dip in” and “move-out” distances are equally long. In this way WEINIG meets all requirements for producing high-quality pallets in an economical way.

Structured surfaces

WEINIG Anwendungen

Produce innovative products economically

 

Creative surfaces are in fashion, whether for furniture frontages, flooring or facades. Previously, things that you could only produce at high cost by hand or in processing centers can now by produced in the moulder in one run.

The WEINIG structure planing technology makes it possible to move the spindle relative to the work piece as it is fed through and in this way to create a three-dimensional surface. Using CAD software the structured surfaces can be checked and simulated in advance and then actually produced on the moulder.

This puts WEINIG at the forefront again, setting new standards with this new development that could open up new market opportunities for you. You can let your creativity run wild with this technology, producing new products - along with short run times, high productivity and low unit costs.

Construction timber

WEINIG Anwendungen

The importance of solid wood as a construction material has grown constantly over the last few years. This means that there are high demands on the surface quality, particularly for the visible areas. The largest area of application are beams, which are planed on 4 sides and chamfered.

Depending on your requirements, WEINIG offers the right solution, from a small machine to a large line; but they have one thing in common: a high level of flexibility because of the 90° chamfering unit.

The chamfering unit is used to produce the fourth chamfer on the beam after the other chamfers have been produced by the vertical spindles and the horizontal top spindle. The chamfering unit control means that dimensions can be changed quickly and a change in the strength of the chamfer can be made without changing the tool and simply by positioning the spindles.

With this technology WEINIG enables small companies to work with the same economy as a large organization.

Glulam

WEINIG Anwendungen

Planing glulam lamellae

 

Glulam is increasingly being used in recent years and therefore more and more importance is being given to planing glued laminated timber lamellae. This depends on achieving a glueable surface at high speed with the lowest level of chip removal. Even the curve of the timber does not make a difference, and can be kept, because the lamellae are glued afterwards and then finally planed again.

WEINIG meets this challenge with innovative machine technology. The combination of slanted horizontal spindles and floating vertical spindles allows the lamellae to be planed with a minimum of chip removal on all four sides while maintaining the curvature of the wood. These WEINIG solutions increase material yield and thus also resource efficiency.

Pre-planing

WEINIG Anwendungen

In industrial wood processing, material yield plays an ever greater role. Scanners are used in this context to identify places with defects and to cut them out. Pre-planing is necessary at the start of the entire chain in order to provide the scanner with a clean surface. Accordingly, chip removal should be minimal and a high feed speed is usually required.

In this segment, WEINIG offers both simple solutions with excellent value for money, as well as innovative solutions with unique technology: from hydro-tools to jointers, slanted spindles and floating spindles up to a feed speed of 300 m/min. As well as the necessary machine technology, WEINIG, of course, also offers suitable mechanization. We can meet your pre-planing needs perfectly!
