Since its introduction to the European woodworking market and its first presentation at Ligna in May 2013 the young company located in Southern Germany has been completing step by step its product portfolio to cover the entire value-chain for professional cabinetry.
In keeping with the company’s focus the edgebanders offer an unbeatable price/performance ratio. They are furnished with robust, high-performance aggregates: a pre-milling unit equipped with DIA cutters by Leuco, two trimming units, a profile milling unit and a pneumatically controlled profile scraping unit. Additionally, the machines are either equipped with a buffing unit or a surface scraping unit. Furthermore, the two top machines have corner rounding units. The top model of the series is KAM 775 IQ which is equipped with a corner rounding unit as well as profile and surface scraping units. It provides everything one needs for perfect edge processing. It processes edges of 0.4 to 3 mm thickness (with corner rounding 1.2 to 3 mm), minimum workpiece widths of 60 mm (with corner rounding min. 130 mm) and workpiece thickness of min. 8 mm. All edgebanders are equipped with a 10” touch screen for the parameter input and activation of the various machine functions.
Meeting the market request for the processing of solid wood edges Lohmeyer recently introduced the edgebanders of the S-series which allow the processing of solid wood edges of 2 up to 8 mm thickness.
The aggregates such as the corner rounding and trimming units are not combined, so that the machine can be perfectly set up for each individual edge. Wood IQ attaches great importance to the stability of the aggregates. Robust aggregates are bigger, but ensure a high repeatability. Furthermore, several workpieces can be processed at the same time, as the feed rate is higher – up to 20 m/min – and the machine longer. Especially when there is only one operator at the machine, this is a clear advantage.
With respect to service and spare parts supply Lohmeyer has a rather unconventional approach: all electronic components are listed in the documentation, so that the customer can order the spare parts directly at the manufacturer or in the internet after the warranty period.
The software surfaces are developed in-house so that the Lohmeyer service technicians have a profound understanding of the software and can adjust the details as per customer requirement.
The edgebanders can be combined with the PUR Advanced Bag Melter by FE-MA-TECH. The bag melter is equipped with a hot melt adhesive hose and is suitable for single-sided egdebanders. PUR Hotmelt is not packed out of the aluminium bag, the bag is placed into a separate tank. The melting capacity is up to 5 kg/h depending on the type of glue. A gear pump 7.3 cm3 ensures an excellent performance. The unit is equipped with an electronic fill-level monitoring, actual value-setpoint value comparison, temperature drop, weekly timer, sensor control PT 100 or NI 120. A flashlight indicates the necessary bag change via an optical and an acoustical signal, so that machine standstill is avoided. The unit is controlled through a clear and multilingual touch display. Optionally, remote diagnosis for PC, tablet or smartphone can be activated. The device is easy to assemble at the machine (about three hours inclusive of instructions).
