The Minimax ME 25 is a compact machine boasting capacities usually only found on much larger units. End trimming, top and bottom trimming, buffing, scraping stations, with 3 mm edge processing (5 mm strips) are standard. This machine is perfect for the small- to medium-sized panel processing shops looking for a small footprint machine with many features at a favorable price.

The Minimax ME 25 has an adjustable infeed fence with numeric readout for the edge thickness which offers precise and quick positioning. The glue pot with a quick heat-up system is Teflon coated to allow for easy clean up and easy glue replacement. The system easily applies the glue to the panel with a vertical glue spreading roller, and the temperature is adjustable via the PLC control. The machine also has a device to automatically recover unused glue.

Edge banding is automatically loaded, and the guillotine easily cuts PVC material up to 3 mm thick. The edge banding coil support is 28” in diameter. The edge banding is applied to the material through the use of double edge pressure rollers. Pressure is adjusted manually with numerical readout and automatic positioning of the upper operating units according to the panel height.

The ME 25 panel movement system is designed for a perfect finish and further improved by the panel conveying belt (SCM patent), which prevents the panel from having the feed affected by the typical pulse generated by the pinion of a traditional feed track. The presser above the belt feed has support rollers that run the entire length of the machine’s stations to assist guiding the panel during operation.

The saw blade end trimmer is extremely precise. Made of solid steel, it guarantees a clean, accurate cut on the leading and trailing edges of the panel being processed. This saw blade trims both the front and rear leading edges of the panels being run. 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 ME 25 features buffing and scraping stations as standard for finishing of 3 mm PVC/ABS edges. The scraping system assures an excellent finish, free of chatter marks and accurate positioning of the knives, thanks to the heavy-duty structure. The buffing station includes two independent motors for cleaning and polishing the edge. The motors are tilted, and vertically adjustable to optimize the polishing and cleanliness.

Also available in 3-phase.
