The Minimax ME 28ET is a compact machine boasting capacities usually only found on much larger units. This model comes with a single diamond pre-milling unit with chip breaker, end trimming, top and bottom trimming, scraping, buffing stations, and 3 mm edge processing (5 mm strips) standard. This machine is perfect for the small to medium sized panel processing shops, this small machine packs many features, and has a favorable price as well.
Panel edge surfaces without any imperfections before the gluing operation. The single head diamond pre-mill and chip breaker ensures a clean edge that corrects any panel imperfections caused by the saw cutting and panel storage process. The independent exhaust system comes equipped with an exhaust hood and air blower which cleans and removes all dust and chips from the panel and stations. Four different thickness removals: 0.5 / 1 / 1.5 / 2 mm.
The ME 28ET Edge bander features a glue pot with a quick heat-up system. The glue pot 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 and has a standby mode while idle.
Automatic edge loading system for coiled edges up to 3 mm thick. The rotating coil-holder plate is 28.7” (73 0mm) in diameter. The edge banding is applied to the material through use of two edge steel pressure rollers with counterpoised conicity. Manual adjustment of the presser, with numerical readout and automatic positioning of the upper operating units according to the panel height.
The ME 28ET 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, which is common at slower speeds. 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 28ET features buffing and scraping stations as standard for finishing of 3mm 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 precise horizontal and vertical copy shoes have high-polished chrome plated surfaces that provides a scratch resistant surface for delicate materials.
4 different thickness removals: 0.5 / 1 / 1.5 / 2 mm
Pre-milling unit utilizes 1 tool with opposing rotation and timed intervention that, through the removal operation, corrects any panel imperfections caused by the saw cutting process and panel storage
Independent exhaust system ensures the panel cleaning removing dust and chips from the panel
The very best finishing of the panel edge is guaranteed by the panel conveying track (exclusive solution), which prevents the panel from 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
