The demand for timber windows has increased significantly in recent years, across all sectors: from new building construction to renovation, thanks to its timeless design, elegance and functional characteristics.
Leveraging nearly 60 year experience and manufacturing know-how, as well as a comprehensive knowledge about the British window design and construction details, Freud has engineered its Flush Casement 89/69mm, an innovative timber window system dedicated to the joiners who want to produce typical English windows, suitable for traditional or period buildings.
The Flush Casement system is available in multiple configurations in terms of style, thickness and components. The corner joint can be realised with traditional tenon and slot or with counterprofile and dowels – optional with Split-Edge technology that reduces cutting pressure and prevents edge chip out.
And this is not the only technology designed by Freud for the window tooling market. For customers who demand a combination between timber aesthetics and aluminum performance and durability, Freud has developed the Alu-Clad Casement window system 89/69mm. By simply replacing a knife or an insert – in-house manufactured by Freud – joiners can implement changes to the window aesthetics and produce windows that greatly differ in style and functionalities.
Freud’s wide range of solutions also offers a complete portfolio of adjustable tools, suitable for traditional spindle moulders, profiling and CNC machines, as well as the latest generation CNC machines: the right recipe for flawless results and the greatest versatility.
For traditional machines, Freud offers WT systems featuring a revolutionary and patented ISOprofil technology, that guarantees the automatic cutting profile recovery after each re-sharpening, and six re-sharpenable knives. While for high-speed CNC machines, Freud engineered the HSI High Speed ISOprofil. It features an exclusive locking system – that allows the use of ISOprofil re-sharpenable knives at high rotating speed and at extreme feed-rates – and Split-Edge knives, which reduce the cutting pressure and prevent edge chip out. HSI improves the machine performance, enabling a higher production in a reduced time. The ease of access to knives and their fast re-positioning reduce both the set-up and the maintenance time.
