The Minimax ME 35TR is a 3-phase automatic edge bander with great flexibility for both thin and thick edges. It intends to bridge the gap between a traditional small to mid-sized edge bander to the more robust equipment used in the Classical line of products. Two of the key features are the pre-mill and corner rounding units. There is no competition in the U.S. market for such a small, versatile machine with pre-mill or corner rounding that is so economical!

This machine is meant to be used with melamine edges, PVC, and ABS up to 3 mm. It contains features usually only found on much larger and expensive machines. The ME 35TR comes with an anti-adhesive unit, pre-milling unit, end-cutting/corner rounding, top and bottom trimming, edge scraping, glue scraping, and buffing unit, with 3 mm edge processing tooling in coils.

Most notable is the full corner rounding end-trimming unit. During the process of removal of the front and rear exceeding edge, this two stage unit trims and rounds the edge in a single pass at the end of the panel. Driven directly from the control panel it is possible to work with only the end cutting function for thin tape and 3mm thick banding. This is the first unit in its class to have this advanced engineering, this small of a footprint, and overall capabilities at a price point that allows the small to medium-sized shop to compete.

Premiered at the Xylexpo in Europe, the Minimax ME 35TR won first place under the “tooling machine” category for its ability to combine the corner-rounding and trimming features into a single tool, compact-sized machine with a minimal footprint. This applied technology makes this edge banding machine a must-have product for small to medium sized facilities. The ideal one-stop machine for facing and trimming the front and rear ends of panels, while at the same time, rounding the front and back edges all at an affordable price for every shop.
