MB Maschinenbau, now in its 25th year, has been steadily building an international profile as a market specialist in the field of brush-sanding technology.
2020 will go down in history for all the wrong reasons, but it has presented MB, like all good companies, with the challenge of working even smarter.
The early part of 2020 saw the introduction of the new Roba Profi Brush sanding machine, and in September MB opened its doors to a new virtual showroom.
Early on in the Covid-19 pandemic, Ronald Busch, the company’s founder, made the decision to invest in multimedia capabilities for the showroom. It now has the ability to run live, real-time demonstrations using the customers’ components on sanding trials, and beam this back to the customer (also in real-time).
The MB range of brush-sanding and cleaning technology are ideal partners for kitchen manufacturers, joinery and timber/MDF moulding operations.
The range splits into surface sanding and denibbing, with the Roba Tech, Roba Split Belt and Profi Brush machines for entrance doors, kitchen cabinet doors and flat panels. For profile sanding and denibbing joinery parts and timber/MDF mouldings, the machines are the Roba profile, Roba Belt and Fentech.
Covering surface cleaning, there are two machines: the Roba Anti Dust, for cleaning of parts prior to lacquer application, lamination or packing; and the Profi Clean, for cleaning the backside of thermofoiled doors or laminated furniture parts.
The new Roba Profi Brush, launched in July last year, was developed to meet the increasing demands on customers painting with water-based primers and lacquers. The main principle of the Roba Profi Brush is to sand in all directions, with opposing movements. Only sanding from right to left, left to right and with and against the feeding direction can ensure that all upstanding timber fibres are denibbed.
The machine is modular in construction, and can be configured to meet customers’ demands, with working widths up to 2m – even machines for heavy timber distressing work can be accommodated.
Things have not stood still at MB, and anyone who would like to make their move to “sanding perfection” should speak to the team at John Penny Woodworking Machinery to arrange a live demonstration or trial on their products.
