Biesse introduces the new Rover A Edge. Optimized for small to medium production environments, it combines the edgebanding technology with the performance machining center, for high function and flexibility for the processing of shaped panels. Glue is spread directly on the panel in the same way as linear machining, says the company, to ensure the same bonding quality. A two coil magazine, placed outside the mesh guards allows for the quick change of banding material without machine stops. A double Y axis allows tool change while the machine is working. HSD aggregates for the finishing of the edge guarantee the correct balance between the shape of the work piece and the time of production. All trimming and scraping aggregates for the edge or glue are equipped with pneumatic and mechanical systems of copying both vertically and horizontally to absorb the dimensional variations of wood or plastic materials. High speed axes operate at up to 100 m/min. The size of the carriage and two independent Z axes allow passage of work pieces up to 170 mm thick. Available electronic positioning systems (EPS) enable reconfiguration of the working table in seconds, says the company.
