Machine type for edging, lengthwise cutting or long side grooving of planks, boards and panel material that is equipped with several saw blades or grooving tools mounted side by side on a sawing spindle. These machines are mainly used by the wood processing industry for example for the cut of window and door planks, parquet lamellas, battens and planed timber. Further applications can be found in the field of soft material such as insulating boards or in the field of hard panel material such as fibre cement or GRP (glass fibre reinforced plastic).
Basic construction (according to Höchsmann's definition)
With the help of the alignment laser it is possible to protect the cutting line of the left adjustable saw blade (option) onto the workpiece. That is a big advantage especially for edging cuts, because the workpiece can be aligned at the right stop and is moved up as close as possible to the timber edge (wood with bark). Because of this procedure it is possible to adjust the machine quickly to changing wood width. To conduct dividing cuts, more than one alignment laser are used. Due to the projection of each blade's cutting line the board can be brought to the right infeed position, depending on its width and quality attributes.
