Known originally for its high performance technically advanced beam saws, CNCs and edge banders, Homag’s planing, profiling, moulding and sanding machines have also achieved similar market-leading status. These products combine state of the art technology with bullet-proof mechanical engineering to deliver an extensive variety of product features and superior finishes.
Homag Mouldteq – a versatile range of moulders and profilers
These machines can process a wide variety of solid wood products. From the four-sided planing of complex window profiles and floor planks to the intricate machining detail of furniture components.
In keeping with the Homag standard, the Mouldteq range is powerTouch operated - a truly unique feature in the moulder industry. At the entry-level is the efficient Homag Mouldteq M-200. This model is well equipped to handle a wide variety of tasks. The most advanced model in this range is the Mouldteq M-300. This flexible machine is packed with features and delivers not only variable feed speeds from 6-24 m/min but also variable spindle speeds. Each spindle can be individually programmed between 4000-8000 rpm.
Simon Brooks, Homag UK’s managing director explains why the Mouldteq M-300 series (pictured) is a real game changer for small to medium sized manufacturers: “The ever-increasing complex designs of window profiles, intricate machining details of door frames and the demand for smaller batch sizes continue to create significant challenges manufacturers.
“Remaining competitive relies on not only the quality of the finished product but also the ability to produce it efficiently. That’s why it’s so important that the solid timber is planed to the highest possible standard, creating the perfect foundation ahead of the next stage of production. Our Mouldteq M-300 series has been ergonomically engineered to efficiently deliver such superior solid timber finishes for all types of product design.”
Homag intelliMoulding app optimises production for all brands
This free, handy multifunction app provides great support for planing or profiling machine operation and can be used with all machine brands. The app provides various digital tools that are precisely tailored to the requirements of the planing or profiling system. These tools can help minimise errors, make production more efficient and open up new potentials for optimisation.
The app can determine and specify the machine parameters for the best possible plane mark distance to optimise the surface quality of the planed workpiece. The expected production quantity on a planing and profiling machine can be determined quickly and easily with the app. The app also calculates the suction volume of the planing and profiling machine. This enables the operator to determine whether an existing planing and profiling machine has sufficient capacity for connecting to an additional sanding machine, for example.
Homag Sandteq wide belt sanders for the perfect finish
Homag is renowned for its powerful wide-belt sanding technology and innovative surface processing. A wide belt sander is used for grinding the surface of solid wood, fine sanding of sheet materials, intermediate sanding during painting and for sanding large surfaces.

International furniture brand creates multiple surface finishes with Sandteq
The Danish furniture manufacturer Hammel Furniture designs and manufactures home furniture including cupboards, dining tables and coffee tables. It develops furniture with a clear focus on functionality and flexibility and has established a leading international furniture brand.
When the company needed to invest in some new sanding machines the directors undertook extensive research to find the right supplier. Four different manufacturers and their wide-belt sanding machines were inspected and tested. At the end of this process, Homag’s Sandteq machines impressed Hammel Furniture’s directors with their quality and extensive application properties.
The directors selected the Sandteq W-325 CH and W-345 RQEH models which, due to their configurations, are ideally suited to processing veneered and painted surfaces. With the two new Homag sanding machines, Hammel Furniture developed new ways of manufacturing a resistant painted surface. Veneer sanding, fine sanding and intermediate varnish sanding are now achieved in a completely different way than in the past. Commenting on this Jacob Helweg, Production Director, Hammel Furniture said: “Foodstuffs such as coffee or wine are aggressive and attack surfaces, but with the Sandteq machines, high-quality resistant surfaces can be created during sanding.”
Hammel Furniture is an excellent example of a business that has deployed Homag’s technology for over 20 years to produce popular, high quality and affordable furniture cost-effectively.
