Stable and steady, the Minimax ME 20 platform is a stainless steel mono-block base. Panels feed with high precision along the friction-free worktable. Rollers facilitate panel processing and the patented feed belt moves the panels through effortlessly and smoothly. All stations are adjusted with a digital mechanical readout for reference, and panel processing is fully automatic with all operating units synchronized.

Coiled PVC banding is easily loaded automatically into the machine, and the guillotine cuts the material precisely to size. The glue is heated rapidly and evenly to maintain the optimal glue temperature. PLC controls keep the temperature constant unless in “stand by” mode, which lowers the temperature without turning off the machine. The glue spreader applies the glue evenly and the two pressure rollers make sure the material is applied evenly to the panel.

Pressure is adjusted with numerical readout and automatic positioning of the upper operating units according to the panel height. The guillotine end trimmer is extremely precise and helps guarantee a clean, accurate cut on the leading and trailing edges of the panel being processed. The process is completely automatic and the cut is referenced directly from the panel via micro-switches, so there is no need for adjustment when running different length panels.

The top and bottom trimming units are automatic and manually adjustable. These trimmers consist of high-polished chrome plated copy shoes which ensure a smooth and accurate profile that provides a scratch resistant surface for delicate materials. The control panel is located on the front of the machine in an ergonomic position. This unit is used to control all of the machines functions quickly and intuitively.

The Minimax ME 20 has an adjustable infeed fence with numeric readout for the edge thickness which offers precise and quick positioning. Each station on the edge bander is easily adjustable and repeatable through the use of mechanical digital readouts. Easily input the dimensions you are processing and fine tune them.

By taking note of the positions for the different panels you run, you can easily change the settings on the fly for any change in operation. The Minimax ME 20 is made even more versatile with this feature. The machine can now handle panels up to 50 mm thick. That is almost 2 inches in thickness!

  • Error-free machining is ensured by the control panel positioned on the front of the machine, which allows an easy selection of all the main functions
  • The simple-to-use PLC Control Panel guides the operator during maintenance, cleaning, diagnostic operations, etc.
  • Innovative system of self-lubrication of the glue pot allows more extensive use of the edge banding machine without the necessity of lubrication
  • The glue spreading roller with electrical resistance inside provides a uniform glue spread and is always at the maximum working temperature even on panels at the maximum working height
  • 4-line LCD display keyboard with “soft touch” pushbuttons and led light indicators for the functions and adjustments of temperature
  • Adjustable infeed fence with numeric readout for the edge thickness which offers precise and quick positioning
  • Top pressure-beam feederutilizes powered top-speed rollers and a high-adherence ribbed belt with steel cables inside and provides consistent and reliable panel feeding
  • Upper protection hood is designed specifically to allow for easier access to the operating units
  • The very best finishing of the panel edge is also guaranteed by the panel conveyor (exclusive solution), which prevents the panel having the feed affected by the typical pulses generated by the pinion of a traditional feed track and ensures a smooth and linear panel movement
  • The efficient cutter ensures cutting is always accurate
  • Slide copying pads align perfectly to the workpiece
  • 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

Please note: Items being shipped to extremely remote areas or areas with limited delivery access (such as islands only accessible by ferry) may incur additional shipping or freight fees. If your order requires any additional fees other than what is already included in the price, you will be contacted before those fees are applied and before your item ships.
