SCM Minimax ME 20 Edgebander, INCLUDES FREIGHT

by Minimax
Stable and steady the Minimax ME 20 platform is a stainless steel mono-block base. The upper protection hood is designed specifically to allow for easier access to the operating units. The panels feed with high precision along the friction-free worktable, while the rollers facilitate panel processing and the patented 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.
1-phase, compact edgebander with 2mm radius tooling. Complete with end trimmer and top/bottom trimmers.
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 to maintain the optimal glue temperature. This is made easy by using the PLC controls, and once set, it keeps the temperature constant unless in “stand by” mode which lowers the temperature without turning off the machine. The glue spreader applies the glue evenly and the two pressure rollers make sure the material is applied evenly to the panel.
Adjustment of the presser, with numerical readout and automatic positioning of the upper operating units according to the panel height.
The guillotine end trimmer is extremely precise and helps guarantee a clean, accurate cut on the leading and trailing edges of the panel being processed. This blade trims both the front and rear leading edges of the panels being run. 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 units are automatic and manually adjustable. These trimmers consist of high-polished chrome plated copy shoes which ensure a smooth and accurate profile that provides a scratch resistant surface for delicate materials.
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. It has a 4-line LCD display keyboard with “soft touch” pushbuttons and led light indicators for the functions, and adjustments of the glue pot temperature.
The Minimax ME 20 has an adjustable infeed fence with numeric readout for the edge thickness which offers precise and quick positioning.
The Minimax ME 20 panel movement system is designed for a perfect finish with the panel feed by means of a top pressure-beam feeder. This utilizes powered top-speed rollers and a high-adherence ribbed belt with steel cables inside and provides consistent and reliable panel feeding.
Each station on the edgebander is easily adjustable and repeatable through the use of mechanical digital readouts. Easily input the dimensions you are processing, and fine tune them. 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!

Simple and Intuitive
Error-free machining is ensured by the control panel positioned on the front of the machine, that allows an easy selection of all the main functions, among them, the operating units switching on and off. The PLC guides the operator during maintenance, cleaning, diagnostic operations, etc.

Ideal Edge Application
The glue is heated rapidly and evenly by the resistances. The automatic lowering of the glue temperature after a temporary halt in production when using the machine avoids burning of the glue. A new innovative system of self-lubrication of the glue pot, allows a more extensive use of the edge banding machine without the necessity of lubrication. Two rollers press the edge banding evenly and efficiently on to the panel edge. The glue spreading roller with electrical resistance inside provides a uniform glue spread and always at the maximum working temperature even on panels at the maximum working height.



Always Precise when Cutting
The efficient cutter ensures cutting is always accurate. The reference is taken directly on the panel itself; consequently it doesn't require any adjustment.


Quality Finishing and Versatility
The unit functions with slide copying pads to align perfectly to the work piece. These cutters are designed for straight or radius trimming of any type of edge, whether it is thick or thin, made of PVC, ABS, melamine, laminate or wood. The edge thickness is easily set by means of two numerical readouts.
