the carriage carrying the work pieces runs in front of the cutters.
The cutter set includes a hogging saw and a vertical shaper. The work pieces are loaded manually and lined up against an adjustable fence. Work pieces are turned around manually to shape both ends with a single shaper. The moving carriage includes vertical and horizontal pneumatic clamps and a chip breaker to prevent tear-out on the last piece of the batch.
The carriage is moved by a motor gear with inverter to ad just the feed speed. After the shaping operation the pieces are transferred to the press table for applying the glue and introducing them, one by one, into the press channel.
The press unit is complete with a cut-off saw to cut the board to length before pressing. After applying the glue the operator introduces the pieces into the press channel. After reaching the pre-set length, the board is cut to length and the board is pressed by a hydraulic cylinder.
The pressure can be pre-set and adjusted according to the cross section of the board to be pressed. After the pressing operation, the board is removed
manually from the press channel and a new board can be composed.
