HS 2000 - 6000 - MICHAEL WEINIG (USA)

WEINIG HS 2000 - 6000: A new generation of long timber horizontal finger jointing lines

You can design your production very flexibly with the HS 2000 - 6000 series. Infeed lengths of up to 6 meters can be processed with HS. This means that the line reaches a shaping capacity of 80 parts/min.
A special timber adjustment in the shapers minimizes any possible curvature of the panels in order to produce a straighter end product.

This can be used, for example, in the production of timber house planks and plywood.

Your benefits: Very high quality end products - as a result of the modular construction of this generation of lines, the components of your finger jointing line are totally adjusted to your timber feed in products and the final goods.


WEINIG single panel lines offer you

  • Every work piece is individually aligned and processed.
  • High-performance lines for capacities up to 160 (200) m/min.
  • With automatic feeding system and stacking solutions

WEINIG HS 2000 - 6000 offers you

  • Material savings: No height offset for horizontal joints
  • Flexibility Short and long timbers can be processed after each other
  • All current types of glue can be used.
  • Possible to use front-end, cycle, extrusion and through-feed presses
  • Scoring units above and below enable every horizontal profile.
  • Automatic centering of the panel curve (straight end product)
  • Indirectly driven tools using proven Weinig spindles
  • Gentle feed-in before the press (no damaged joints, lower cleaning costs)

Technical Details

Horizontal finger joint

Positive-negative profile
Trapeze profile

The positive-negative profile is the second most common profile in a shaper combination because the system only needs to be equipped with three scoring units instead of four and produces high quality visible joints.

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.

In long timber lines, the horizontal finger joints are mainly used for timber houses. The shoulder profiles provide, for example, timber house beams where only straight butt joints are visible on the outside.

Horizontal finger joint (special)

Half shoulder profile
Reverse shoulder profile

The half shoulder profile can be run in manual and in fully automatic lines.

The reverse shoulder profile is mainly used for the simplest lines where, sometimes, no scoring unit is used.

Both of these horizontal profiles are special profiles and are hardly used in shaper combinations because they only offer advantages with individual shaper lines.
