The Minimax ME 40ET 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!
The control system for the ME 40ET is a simple and intuitive use of error-free machining and is ensured by the control positioned on the front of the edge bander which allows an easy selection of all of the main functions. These functions include the operating unit switching on/off and the PLC unit which guides the operator during maintenance, cleaning, diagnostic operations, and much more.
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. With its own independent high frequency motor running the blade at 12,000 RPM with an Ø 125mm Z12 blade, you can expect the finest finish of any edge bander in its class.
The Minimax ME 40ET pre-mill unit utilizes two 80 mm diameter diamond tools with opposing rotation and timed intervention that, through the removal operation, corrects any panel imperfections caused by the saw cutting process and panel storage. This allows for a clean edge and a good lineal finish during the pre-mill process. Pre-milling 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.
