As a specialist with many years of experience KOCH have perfected the various operations such as Sawing, Drilling, Shaping, Glueing and Dowelling. KOCH sets new standards with individual and innovative solutions as well as with standard machinery especially for the furniture production and wooden window and door production.
The FRONTLINE is a machining centre for drilling on all 6 sides of small/narrow workpieces, as well as cabinet components in a lengthwise throughfeed operation.
With this machine concept the workpieces are fed through the machine lengthwise. First of all the workpieces are placed on an infeed conveyor belt, which feeds components into the working station and from there they are taken over by a NC-controlled gripper, which grips the workpiece from top and bottom. Upon completion of the processing, the workpieces are passed over to another gripper, which grips the workpiece from both edges and drives it out of the working station, while the first gripper already fetches a new workpiece. Thanks to this system it is possible to process the workpieces without having to reference the workpiece dimensions and without downtime or set-up times.
The machine for just-in-time manufacturing is available with a working width up to 600 mm.
Koch offers 3 different, attractive version of the FRONTLINE-machine:
1. FRONTLINE-Smart: High-performance basic version with specific equipment
2. FRONTLINE-Professional: Professional equipment with enhanced configuration, as well with specific equipment
3. FRONTLINE-Classic: Individual equipment, according to the customer's particular requirements. Because of its modular conception the machine can be equipped with a grooving, routing, dowelling and/or fitting insertion station.
KOCH has developed the fastest concept of its kind. Special attention has been paid to the gripper system, with which a continuous feeding of the most varied workpieces is possible. That is why a maximum output can be reached with this highly-flexible machine. As for all Koch machines the FRONTLINE is equipped with high-quality components. The machine is powerful for small and large batch sizes.
