Using a menu-driven touchscreen console, the operator can quickly change the pitch, size, and pattern of the dovetail.

SAN DIEGO – Mereen-Johnson’s 1101 CNC dovetail machine maximizes flexibility to accommodate varying sizes of drawer boxes due to its fast changeover capability. 

Using a menu-driven touchscreen console, the operator can quickly change the pitch, size, and pattern of the dovetail. The machine can process material thicknesses of ¼ inch to ¾ inch and can produce 60 boxes per hour based on four dovetailed being cut per box.

Other features of the 1101 CNC dovetailer include 3-hp high-speed spindle motor, cutter compensation, and the ability to load multiple parts while the spindle is in motion.

The 1101 dovetail machine will be featured in the Running Machine Program, with scheduled live demonstrations taking place on the show floor during both days of Wood Pro Expo California, April 28-29.
