  • Description

    The SCM Minimax ME 20 is a through feed hotmelt edgebander with end cutting and trimming unit suitable for coiled edging up to 2 mm thick, and solid edge strips up to 5 mm thick. The machine is PLC controlled that allows an easy selection of all the main functions, among them, the operating units switching on and off. The PLC guides the operator during maintenance, cleaning, diagnostic operations, etc.

    The glue is heated rapidly and evenly with automatic temperature lowering after a temporary halt in production to avoid burning the adhesive. Two rollers press the edge banding evenly and efficiently on to the panel edge. The glue spreading roller with heating elements inside provides a uniform glue spread the optimal working temperature.

    The machine units operate with slide copying pads to align perfectly to the work piece. Cutters are designed for straight or radius trimming of any type of edge, whether it is thick or thin, made of PVC, ABS, melamine, laminate or wood. The edge thickness is easily set by means of two numerical readouts.

    Basic machine units

    Glue pot unit, edge loading and pressing system

    • hot melt glue with quick heat up system and internally teflon coated to allow an easy glue replacement
    • glue application on the panel by means of glue spreading roller
    • temperature adjustment of the applied glue integrated in the PLC control
    • device for automatic recovery of unused glue
    • automatic edge loading system for rolled edges with shear device for 2 mm max. thickness edges
    • coil holder plate, 730 mm diameter
    • pressing unit with n. 2 edge pressure rollers: one in steel and the second rubber coated
    • adjustable infeed fence with numeric readout of the edge thickness
    • automatic lowering of the glue pot temperature after a temporary machine non-use

    End cutting unit

    • End cutting unit for the cut at 90° on the leading and trailing edges of the panel. Possibility to exclude the unit through PLC.

    Superposed trimming unit

    • Equipped with vertical copying pads for an accurate positioning of tools with reference to the cutting point.
    • The unit is provided with 72 mm diameter, combined cutters: the radius part of the cutter is used to trim 2 mm radius edges and chamfered thin edges. The straight part of the cutter is used for the trimming of edges in wood up to 5 mm. Changing from radius edge to edge in wood is done easily moving the cutters axially. The edge thickness is shown by 2 numeric readouts.
