The Minimax ME 35ET is a single-phase automatic edge bander with great flexibility for both thin and thick edges. It is intended to bridge the gap between a traditional small to midsize edge bander to the more robust equipment used in the Classical line of products. There is no competition in the U.S. market for such a small, versatile machine, with pre-mill that is so economical! This machine is meant to be used with melamine edges, PVC and ABS up to 3 mm and wooden strips up to 5 mm.

The ME 35ET pre-mill unit is complete with two diamond tools, 80mm diameter. This allows for a clean edge and a good lineal finish during the pre-mill process. The pre-milling unit comes with an independent exhaust and air blower for cleaning of the panel during the process. You can carry out vertical adjustments of the tools for use even into the final sharpening phase.

An interchangeable glue pot allows for easier access. The glue pot is Teflon coated to allow for easy clean up and easy glue replacement with a quick heat-up system. The system applies the glue to the panel with a vertical glue spreading roller, and the temperature is adjustable via the PLC control. This machine also has a device to automatically recover any unused glue.

The high frequency motors generate high cutter rotating speed, reducing to a minimum any marks left from trimming and guaranteeing the absence of vibrations. These cutters are designed for straight or radius trimming of any type of edge.

The special end-cutting unit with radius function is installed in place of the standard end-cutting unit. During the process of cutting off the front and rear exceeding edges (except for solid wood strips), it rounds off the angles of the edge banded panel. This creates a beautiful radius edge. This function is directly controlled with the operator interface at the control panel. 

The control system for the Minimax ME 35ET is a simple and intuitive use of the error-free machining and is ensured by the control positioned on the front of the machine which allows an easy selection of all of the main functions. These functions include the operating unit switching on/off and the PLC unit guides the operator during maintenance, cleaning, diagnostic operations, and more.
