WEINIG ProfiJoint: Enormous performance potential for those starting out

WEINIG Kurzholzanlagen

The newly developed ProfiJoint entry model uses the same technology as the “big ones”. A wise investment with an outstanding cost-performance ratio. Due to the modular design, the line can be upgraded to a shaper combination. Just one of the many plus points, including the quick return it offers.

This production line can process wood widths up to 150 (170) mm, wood thicknesses up to 50 (80) mm and wood entry lengths between 150 and 700 mm without any problems.

The cast iron body reduces vibrations in the area where the precision of the finger jointing is paramount. And not forgetting the tool technology: Regardless of whether you are marking vertically or horizontally with pre-scorers, the ProfiJoint range uses the same equipment as the high performance models.

Technical Details

Vertical finger joint

Vertical profile

The vertical finger joint is the most frequently produced type of finger joint in the world. It provides the highest performance in a packaged finger jointing line. The vertical profile is mainly applied in constructive woodworking, but is also used for building windows and frames. It is has the largest glue surface and is therefore the most stable of all finger joints.

Horizontal finger joint

Reverse shoulder profile
Trapeze profile

The half shoulder profile is the second most frequent profile that is run, because it can be used with individual shapers as well as in manual to fully automatic lines. The reverse shoulder profile is mainly used for the simplest lines where, sometimes, no scoring unit is used.

The trapeze profile is also called “American Profile” because this finger joint originates from the US and is usually delivered with a finger joint length of 1/4 inch. Horizontal finger joints are mainly used in furniture construction. The shoulder profiles provide, for example, table plates that look like parquet where only the straight butt joints are visible.

Angara Plus from Bratsk, Siberia, manufactures solid wood components for furniture production on a large scale. The company recently commissioned its second fully-automated production line. WEINIG Concept designed the tailor made solution.

The Russian wood sector is characterized by complex requirements. Tailoring industrial systems requires partners who understand project business. WEINIG Concept is a proven specialist in the field with a worldwide reputation. Something Angara Plus also appreciates. Having been very satisfied with the fully-automated production line for solid wood panels purchased in 2013, the company also turned to WEINIG as its first choice when it came to expanding its operations with a production line for finger-jointed products. What was required was a complete process ranging from checking wood humidity and cutting out defects to cutting fixed lengths, finger jointing, block gluing and destacking. The complete provider WEINIG was able to present a convincing solution. This included the integration of the ultra-fast OptiCut 450 Quantum optimizing cross-cut saw, the EasyScan+ 200 C scanner system and two Powermat moulders that deliver particularly high performance. The centerpiece of the production line, however, is the Turbo S-1000 short timber finger-jointing line with an output of up to 200 parts per minute. The process stage is completed by a ProfiPress C 6100 L high-frequency press. Naturally, the entire automation comes from the WEINIG Group. The production line is designed for 300 production days per year. To achieve maximum machine availability, the production line was equipped with a remote maintenance system. This allows the WEINIG technicians to assist where necessary without having to travel.

Maximum yield

Hand drauf: Für Jani Oikari sind Geschäfte nicht zuletzt Vertrauenssache

There is practically no decorative profile or wall cladding that Finnish company Maler, based in Ylivieska, cannot make. In order to balance product diversity, quality and price, the company invested in a new WEINIG Turbo-S 1000 finger-jointing line.

Finger-jointing lines can optimally utilize even lower quality material. Jani Oikari, Managing Director of Maler, was optimistic from the outset: “Finger jointing is the key to efficient production.” Consequently, he invested in a Turbo-S 1000 along with various customer-specific options. He turned to WEINIG and our Finnish representative Penope in Lahti following years of positive experiences. “When you are investing such an amount, you also want to be certain that the required production capacity will be achieved,” says the entrepreneur. Following consistent strong growth, the company now has to fill a 12,000 m2 warehouse while also fulfilling special requests quickly and at a reasonable price. Maler serves both DIY stores and industrial customers, imposing high standards in terms of volume, delivery times, quality and consistency.

The new system will align the partly very delicate and short pieces highly precisely lengthwise and transport these to the milling and gluing station. Thanks to the WEINIG Trimsaver system with two laser measuring units, parts cut at angles are to be detected and accurately aligned. With an upgrade, these parts can even be discharged at the separation station by switching the belt into reverse. This means no more open joints and in consequence an increased timber yield. Work pieces with wane are centered at each belt transfer so that no wood can get jammed. Maler uses these resources deliberately for profiles on which this area will be removed in any case. This way, the manufacturer aims to gain the maximum yield from its raw materials. “We advised Maler to use a 7 mm joint to almost eradicate tears,” says WEINIG expert Dirk Bartens. The customer is clearly convinced by the results. Jani Oikari is delighted with the consistently high jointing quality.

A sector with huge potential

WIN-WIN-Situation für Lieferant und Kunde: Manfred Ness von WEINIG (rechts) mit Tricor-Projektleiter Maik Christmann

Gigantic would be the right word to describe the Tricor Packaging & Logistics AG production facility in Eppishausen/Germany. Every hour, the fully-automated WEINIG production line produces around 360 pallets for in-house use.

Freight transport is one of the world's major growth markets. Manufacturers of wooden packaging are also benefiting from this. One outstanding representative of the sector isTricor, the European market leader in heavy-duty corrugated cardboard packaging. Customers come primarily from the automotive and mechanical engineering sectors as well as the electronics, medical technology and chem-ical industries. For a long time, the company purchased its annual requirement of 1,300,000 special pallets externally. Then they turned to WEINIG. Besides increased productivity, im-proving the value chain was also on their wish list. In June 2017, a highly automated cutting system was delivered to the Eppishausen plant. Central components comprise three parallel OptiCut 260 optimizing cross-cuts saws with Variospeed infeed belt and downstream sort-ing as well as an Ultra TT finger-jointing line for leftover pieces from 150 mm. The finger-joint-ed lamellae are then fed back into production. Only three employees produce up to 360 pallets per hour on the high-performance production line, which is linked to a Corali pallet system. For a pallet measuring 1,220 x 820 mm, this equates to approx. 80 m/min of incoming materials to the cross-cut saws or around 30,000 running meters per shift. The system is charged via vacuum destacking, which takes up to three infeed stacks simulta-neously with three different wood dimensions. The boards are checked via automatic humidity measurement before a layer allocator assigns one dimension to each of the three saws. Dr. Mario Kordt, Managing Director of Weinig Dimter, underlines WEINIG’s special position in the packaging segment: “With our technology, we provide a unique service to an area that ranges from 2-man operations to the industrial sector.” With WEINIG’s expertise in cutting, gluing and scanning, the WEINIG Group customer receives from a single source everything that is needed to ensure the efficient and economic production of pallets and wooden packaging.
