  • Panel Pre-Heat Unit:
    Quartz lamp for heating substrate edge before glue application.

  • Edge Magazine: 
    Coiled material heavy duty guillotine. Pneumatic controlled preventing premature panel feeding. Automatic edge feed device for fast changeover of different coils up to 3 mm thick. Motorized edge material transport.

  • Pressure Zone:
    Driven, pneumatically loaded pressure roller and (3) idle post pressure rollers. One adjustment for edge thickness.

  • A12 Gluing System (First): 
    EVA (Hot Melt), Quick Melt hopper feeder & roller applicator (reversible). Processing of PU adhesive possible with changeable VKNO 2068 (not included). Glue roller can run in forward and reverse rotation relative to workpiece.
    Glue Reactivation via infrared heater - maintains ideal glue application temperature.

  • AirTec Activation Unit AT15 (Second):
    Designed to run on standard application unit or with the AirTec system.
    Can provide a zero-edge (seamless) higher quality product. Only usable on edging material with a  polymer based functional layer (edge coating with melting point/fusion point of 155°C. 

    Layer is reactivated by compressed hot air pressed in the pressure zone at the narrow side of the workpiece. Temperature and pressure are adjustable by machine control. Parameters are stored in control according to edging material.

    Control of AT unit is integrated with the machine control.


  • End Trimming Unit - Chamfer/Straight:
    KW 0.35 x 2 (HP 0.5 x 2) - 200 Hz, 12,000 RPM Motor ea. to cut excess edge on the front & back of the panel; pneumatic adjusting from chamfer to straight snip. Chamfer adjustable 0 - 15°.
    Pneumatic adjust. from Chamfer/Straight. Pneumatic adjust. for flush/overhang trimming.

  • Rough/Pre-Trimming Unit:
    Top & bottom, KW 0.55 x 2 (HP 0.75 x 2) - 12,000 RPM ea. motor. Height adjustment with the top pressure-beam. Lateral movement 30 mm. Digital readout. Max. edge thickness 15 mm, workpiece thickness 8 - 60 mm. Pneumatic two-point adjustment of vertical copy wheel flush & overhang trimming.
  • Contour Trimming Unit "MF 60 Servotrim"
    (2) Motors (4 corners) @ 0.4 KW (0.55 HP), 200 Hz, 12,000 RPM, with Tool Support HSK 25. Servo control with soft-touch function. Diamond cutters and integrated extraction technology. Lengthwise trimming and/or corner rounding selectable via machine control.  Servomotor adjustment for the tracing wheel for front and rear edge. Variable tracing pressure is program storable.

  • Profile Scraping Unit w/Quick-Change Heads:
    Sensing from top/bottom and laterally for rounding off rough trimmed PVC edges. Height adjust. of top scraper with top pressure beam. (2) easy changeable scraping heads for radii changes, (2) reversible profile knives.

    Pneumatic adjustment of unit for lateral movement. Indicator for machine inspection and maintenance reminders. TeleServiceNet for remote maintenance via Internet.

  • Glue Joint Scraping Unit:
    Sensing from top/bottom. Height adjusted with top pressure beam. 
  • Buffing Unit:
    Top & bottom edge polishing. (2) motors @ 0.18 KW, individually mounted with tilting. Height adjusted with top pressure beam.

  • Electronic Power Control PC 20+:
