Whatever the size or the performance class, we have a machine to suit your needs.
The Spindle Unit: Precision, down to the smallest detail
The heavy duty profil 45 spindle moulder drive is designed in every detail based on many years of machine design experience. Production facilities feature the highest level of modern technology. Tilting of the Spindle unit, developed for industrial purposes is carried out through a double sided cast iron dovetail guiding system ensuring complete accuracy and maximum stability. A dovetail system is also used for precise height settings.
Standard equipment "Power-Drive": Electric spindle moulder height and angle setting
With the knobs located on the control panel, you can obtain the desired moulder spindle height and angle setting with fast and creep speed functions. The adjusted values can be easily read on the red LED display. This is a valuable standard feature and assures user friendliness of the highest standard.
Optional "Digi-Drive": Even more accuracy at the touch of a button, Twin axle control of moulder spindle height and angle setting
Enter the desired moulder spindle height and angle, press start, and the moulder unit will move exactly into the required position. LED displays for actual and desired values. In addition: consecutive settings function, programming of 99 moulder spindle positions.
Overhead control panel
We can also optionally install your Format-4 profil 45 with "Digi-Drive" control all in a control panel at eye level.
Quick-change of moulder spindle without using tools
For unlimited use of your new tilting spindle moulder profil 45, additional support is obtained by the moulder spindle quick-change system. You may use moulder spindles with pre-mounted moulding tools for moulding in series, but also spindles of various diameters. Spindle change can be done in a few seconds.
High-Speed Router Spindle
The high speed router spindle is designed for router shaft diameters of Ø 6–16 mm and a speed of 16,000 rpm with up to 10 HP.
The FORMAT-4 moulder spindle tilts backwards: This is an important advantage for you when working on all kinds of pieces!
Forward tilting of the spindle moulder can be dangerous and has serious handling disadvantages: increased risk of accidents, limited height of workpiece, power feeder operation is not possible, poorly machined surface, poor or even impossible chip removal
Tilting of the spindle moulder in the right way on Format-4 “rearwards” with easy handling: Safe operation, Suitable for any workpiece size, Problem-free power feeder application, Impeccably machined surface, Optimal chip removal.
Precise adjustments have never been so easy. The Format-4 Moulder Fence Stop 250, precision at the push of a button!
Pin point accuracy, exceptional user friendliness, and very short setup time are guaranteed with equipment of the highest standard:
- Convenient electronic spindle fence setting with LED display for precise reading of measurement and a reset function
- Removable moulder fence guide, adjustable from –10 to +35 mm
- Tool diameters up to 250 mm
- The complete moulder fence can be tilted away below the moulder table level
- Centrex moulder guard
- Dual dust extraction from moulder fence and beneath the table
Hardened anodised aluminium fence plates
Hardened anodised aluminium fence plates standard on the Professional range. Accurate fine adjustment on the removable spindle fence via a scale from –10 to +35 mm.
Moulder fence with tilt-away bracket
Important for quick and efficient change of moulding tools, moulder spindle and for curved moulding.
Dual extraction for the spindle function
The dual extraction for the spindle function via the spindle fence and the chip collecting bin under the cutterhead ensure that the machine remains clean and that good working results are obtained.
Spindle Moulder table opening: 320 mm
The large table opening stands for maximum operator safety. For large dimension tooling, as used for tenoning and panel raising, the cutterblock can be conveniently positioned below the table.
Tenoning and slotting
On FORMAT-4 tilting spindle moulders, a slot and tenon table is standard equipment. Generously designed and prepared for a high loading capacity, the tenoning table "hovers" on X-ROLL, the brand new high tech guiding system. The X – configuration of the roller bearings (X-ROLL) always optimally distributes the work piece weight to all sides.
1100mm outrigger table
Option: The outrigger table makes it much easier to process large and heavy work prieces when using the sliding table. Providing support and smoothness, the outrigger telescopic arm is fitted with 4 ball bearing guiding rollers.
Outrigger Table 1300
Option: The 1300 outrigger table has a very large surface area, increasing the support when processing larger pieces. The workpiece roller at the end of the table helps to load larger pieces without causing any damage. When combined with a 2500 mm tennoning table, large doors or windows can easily be manufactured.
Safety bar guides
The safety bar guides, great for "end-grain" work (optional).
