The Minimax ME 40ETR HP is a 3-phase automatic edgebander with great flexibility for both thin and thick edges. It intends to bridge the gap between a traditional midsize edgebander and the more robust equipment used in the Classical line of products. One of the key features is the pre-mill. There is no competition in the U.S. market for such a versatile machine with pre-mill that is so economical!

The Minimax ME 40ETR HP pre-mill unit utilizes two 80 mm diameter diamond tools with opposing rotation and timed intervention that 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 the panel.

Designed for a perfect finish, the ME 40ETR HP eliminates transfer marks onto the workpiece. 9 meter/min panel feed speed with track movement for increased productivity. Monitoring of the panel position is done by an encoder for total work cycle control. 

The two stage full corner rounding end-cutting unit cuts 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 3 mm thick banding or wood. 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.

The Minimax 40ETR HP comes with the 10" Eye-S, a touch screen control panel loaded with features to make edge banding applications easy. It allows you to choose the type of material you’re working with (MDF, chipboard, etc.), set the height and thickness of material, and adjust the glue temperature and type, among other things. All edge banding functions are shown graphically on the screen, so it leaves little room for errors or confusion.
