Automatic edge bander
Minimax ME 20 Minimax ME 20 Single Sided Edgebander
One of our most popular machines, the Minimax ME 20 has a new look and new features that make it better than it’s ever been previously! Stable and steady the Minimax ME 20 platform is a stainless steel mono-block base. The upper protection hood is designed specifically to allow easy access to the operating units. Panels feed with high precision along the frictionfree worktable. Rollers facilitate panel processing and the feed belt moves the panels through effortlessly and smoothly. All stations are adjusted with a digital mechanical readout for reference, and panel processing is fully automatic with all operating units synchronized.
Coiled PVC banding is easily loaded automatically into the machine, and the guillotine cuts the material precisely to size. The glue is heated rapidly and evenly. Maintaining the optimal glue temperature is made easy using the PLC controls, and once set it keeps the temperature constant even when in “stand by” mode. The glue spreader applies the glue evenly and two pressure rollers make sure the material is applied efficiently to the panel.
The end trimmer is extremely precise. Made of solid steel, it guarantees a clean, accurate cut on the leading and trailing edges of the panel being processed. The process is completely automatic and the cut is referenced directly from the panel via micro-switches so there is no need for adjustment when running different length panels.
The top and bottom trimming is automatic. The trimmers consists of chrome plated shaper cutters which are bearing mounted to ensure smooth feed. Soft panels feed scratch-free due to the use of smooth rollers as opposed to pads. The trimmers are completely adjustable.
The control panel is located on the front of the machine in an ergonomic position. This unit is used to control all of the machines functions quickly and intuitively. With the PLC controller you can easily and comfortably remove the end trimming and guillotine cut so that you can easily feed wooden banding strips up to 5mm thick.
Each station on the Edgebander is easily adjustable and repeatable through the use of these digital mechanical readouts. Easily input the dimensions you are processing, and fine tune them simply. By taking note of the positions for the different panels you run, you can easily change the settings on the fly for any change in operation.
The Minimax ME 20 is made even more versatile with this new feature. The machine can now handle panels up to 50mm thick. That is almost 2 inches in thickness.
