Four Steps to Optimal Moulder Usage

Posted: 03/12/2012 11:15AM Below are tips to optimize your moulding operation in the wood shop.

1. Reduce the cost per lineal foot of moulding by using a high cutterhead RPM (10,000), which makes it possible to maintain a high rate of feed and quality surface finish.

2. Accurate tool measuring systems will help ensure dimensional accuracy from one run to the next.

3. To meet the demand for one-of-a-kind pieces, the measurements for the custom knives are entered into a computerized moulder, which then sets the spindle into the proper position via motorized spindle positioning. The first piece produced then is accurate, without the production of set-up sticks.

4. A misaligned shoe can result in a poor finish. The shoe should always be parallel with the bed plate underneath it. The amount of contact the shoe has with the workpiece should also be considered.

Is it the intent of this publication to promo the German brand as the moulder to purchase? If not, then you should have covered the brand name. We design and sell moulder feed tables. How do we get noticed? Regards. Bill
