Shapers

Machines that can finish a cabinet system much faster than conventional means.

Maximum stability and rigidity in every working condition thanks to a big cast-iron spindle molder unit and a sturdy base in single-block steel. Great versatility with the spindle molder with 4 speeds and available in fixed or tilting version. Best support in all machinings, thanks to the 330 mm width sliding table.

Shaper Advantages

Unsurpassed Moulding

Maximum stability and rigidity in all working conditions, thanks to a large spindle moulder column made entirely of cast iron. The 4 standard speed are ideal for any type of machining, from moulding to routing and tenoning, with the possibility to fit tools upto 320 mm of diameter (300 mm no CE).

High-tech Accessories

As option it is available the spindle moulder hood that uses a system for adjusting the guides with a rack and it is fitted with a mechanical digital readout. Thanks to the system of memories the hood can be removed and repositioned without losing the machining position. The maximum tool diameter during moulding operations is 240 mm.

Unrivalled Cutting Finishing

Optimal support also to larger pieces, with the new sliding table 360 mm wide. Exceptional precision and smoothness: to secure the guides it is not used glue, since the thickness could affect sliding. They are secured with a procedure of aluminum riveting.
