Companies needing to consistently produce premium quality panel based products – whether for furniture, kitchens, bedrooms, shop fitting or other items – need an edgebander that can be relied on to perform at the same high level, day in, day out. Historically, smaller woodworking shops have found it difficult to justify the investment required to acquire such machinery. Now, Brandt has changed this with the introduction of the Ambition 1230 airTec.
The Ambition 1230 airTec is a cost-effective entry-level edgebander which, because it features airTec zero-joint technology, delivers first-class results. The airTec system joins the edge and the panel without adhesive but using hot air to give a tight, invisible joint. The machine can also be used with conventional EVA adhesive and even PUR.
This compact machine is fully equipped with pre-milling, a heavy-duty pressure zone for coil and strip materials, front and rear end trim saws, top and bottom trimming and profiling units and a corner rounding unit to provide complete panel processing. With the Ambition 1230 airTec, the need for hand-finishing is eliminated because it has a profile scraper, a glue joint scraper and a buffing unit.
The appeal of Brandt’s new easyTouch control system lies in its intuitive operation and user oriented menu structure. It features a clearly arranged 7in graphic display with simple touch-screen operation.
These days, the ever-increasing diversity of edge materials requires a highly flexible machine with rapid edge-changing capabilities. The easyTouch control system makes it possible to adapt the range of operations to meet customers’ specific requirements and save the programs for instant call up.
The new easyTouch controller has supporting functions that are simple and easy to access. The logging of production data, the selection of programmes or the glue temperature can be quickly checked on the 7in display.
The main economic benefits of the Brandt Ambition 1230 airTec are time-saving and offer a great price/efficiency ratio. It offers complete panel processing with its pneumatic adjustments of the pressure zone, end-trimming unit, trimming unit and scraping unit all contributing to this performance.
The Ambition 1230 airTec can handle edge tape thickness from 0.4 to 3mm and solid wood up to 6mm. It also has a panel thickness capability of 8-60mm. All this, coupled with Homag’s flexible finance packages, brings high-end technology and invisible joints within reach of the smaller manufacturer.
