W16 to showcase Holz-Her’s panel processing prowess
As part of the Weinig Group’s stands around M810 at this year’s W16 Exhibition, high quality panel processing machine specialist Holz-Her will feature the latest in its range of vertical CNC machining centre solutions - the Holz-Her Evolution 7405.
With a machine footprint of less than 5m2, an easy to use interface and a patent pending 4-sided milling facility, the Holz-Her Evolution’s versatility and flexibility makes machining cambered parts such as furniture fronts and counter tops easy and fast.
Precise complete machining on all four workpiece edges as well as the surface allows panels to be formatted completely, resulting in perfect workpieces completely grooved and profiled on all edges (patent pending). Upgrade to the 7.5 kW HSK spindle with tool changer for 6 tools, and the machine also allows profile milling, point thinning and engraving with automatic tool change.
The vacuum-based clamping system (patent pending) is gentle on material and being equipped with software-controlled suction cup positioning with hole recognition, workpieces with lengths of up to 1,500mm can be machined on all sides without re-clamping. This guarantees extremely short cycle times (up to 35% shorter machining cycles) and maximum precision, even on long parts.
In response to customer demand for fine to zero glue lines, all Holz-Her edgebanders are capable of delivering a fine glue line as standard. From the smallest edgebanders to the largest production solution, each comes with Holz-Her’s unique and award-winning Glu Jet system as standard, catering for every size and type of business. Be it high gloss or solid wood edging, the system is both flexible and versatile. Such is its build quality and reliability, the Glu Jet system also comes with a three year warranty.
This is industrial technology for all – you can now process PUR glue as standard, but without the hassle. As the benchmark for professional cabinet makers, most manufacturers would use PUR, but not all machinery can cope with it; PUR is difficult to manage with a standard glue pot and molecular cross-linking becomes a problem. With the Glu Jet ready to use in under four minutes with EVA or PUR, Holz-Her’s unique system is the right solution for any edgebanding requirements. But it doesn’t stop there. With the new Holz-Her Lumina series comes an option for the LTronic system – the laser-edging unit from Holz-Her unbeatable in terms of speed and cost efficiency.
The NIR (Near Infrared Radiation) module in Holz-Her’s LTronic unit transfers heat energy quickly and precisely to the specific point required making it ideal for activation of function layers on laser edging. Two different NIR modules are available: the standard module for edge heights up to 23mm, or the optional NIR+ module for edge heights up to 45mm.
It’s ready to use as soon as you switch it on – there is no heat-up time or any heat-up phases during the machining process. In addition, the complete system operates absolutely silently; a huge advantage over other noisy systems. With the integrated protective plate on the NIR module only needing to be briefly cleaned just once a week, the system is a pioneer in terms of energy efficiency.
