  • Description

    Saw-spindle moulder machine whose professional technical solutions adopted give it unrivalled performance and reliability.
    Top-tier performance. Sliding table up to 10.5′ in length, multi-speed saw unit, integrated power feeder mount, digital-mechanical or LED readouts with powered movements (in three-phase configuration). The most advanced saw/ shaper on the market.

    Unique in the world in its category, with a cutting height of 118 mm. The cast iron saw unit with a rigid closed loop structure can accommodate a blade of 315 and 350 mm diameter with the scoring blade mounted, ensuring perfect and easy cutting of veneer panels and thick solid wood material. The saw blade uses 100% of the motor power, thanks to the scoring blade with an independent motor as standard. The rotation fulcrums of the saw unit have a 120 mm diameter and stand on steady crescent shaped rests that separate it from the base: a rigid reliable solution.

    Optimal support also to larger pieces, with the sliding table 360 mm wide. Exceptional precision and smoothness: to secure the guides it is not used glue, since the thickness could affect sliding. They are secured with a procedure of aluminium riveting. Maximum stability and rigidity in all working conditions, thanks to a large spindle moulder column made entirely of cast iron. The 4 standard speed are ideal for any type of machining, from moulding to routing and tenoning, with the possibility to fit tools up to 320 mm of diameter (300 mm no CE).

    Panel loading is easy on the large squaring frame with an idle roller at the end. The telescopic squaring fence with the inclined metric scale and two reversible stops can be used to square panels measuring 3200 x 3200 mm and for mitre cuts at up to 45° on both sides of the frame.
