Setting up a spindle moulder, and particularly a tilting arbor spindle moulder, can be a major challenge. But that’s not the case with the T29 Flex tilting arbor spindle moulder with its innovative, groundbreaking control system which lets you work highly efficiently thanks to its intelligent networking options.
For example, the new, innovative ConnectControl system offers you the possibility of centrally managing your tool data from the Production Planning department. This means that not just one machine, but all machines with access to ConnectControl technology, are always provided with the latest data. When carrying out complex profile settings with a tilted spindle, it is not unusual for set-up times to be reduced by
up to 80%*. Even profiles as basic as a rebate
can be set up to 20%*faster.

Cutter arbor clamping system HSK
Opt for the pneumatically operating HSK system. This system is ideal for any user who changes the complete tool/arbor units very often as it noticeably reduces set-up times. You can also use suitable CNC machining centre tools directly on the spindle moulder without any problem, thereby relieving this expensive machine from capacity-consuming traversing moulding tasks.
Small distances for great results.
On the T29, the electrically adjustable ring inserts, invented by MARTIN, are the perfect solution for closing the gap between the tool and the table in the best way possible. They are fully integrated into the control system and facilitate the set-up process enormously. By simply specifying a value or moving them manually, you can open or close the eccentric rings, and thus the gap, continuously. So at the start of the set-up process, you don’t need to know which fixed ring you need to insert into the table – you can simply adjust the gap quickly and easily at a later stage. It could hardly get any easier.
The fence opening should always be closed in the firmly way so that the workpiece can be properly guided as it moves along the fence. This can be achieved with the tried and tested integral fence. The bars of the jaws, which are made of hard-coated aluminium, can be easily folded into position and released again, and the height position can also be varied.
The bar cassettes can be easily removed to allow working with a pre-set board.
More convenience with the feed support.
The electromotive positioning of the feed support with its ingenious latching mechanism provides genuine workload relief. The height adjustment of the feed unit can be easily specified and approached by the control system, and can also be integrated into the programs. The depth of the feed can be easily adjusted thanks to the ball-bearing guide.
And if the feed is not currently required, simply pivot it away to one side without losing any of the settings you made previously.
Fence jaw clamping system AutoLock
Fence jaws need to be moved on a regular basis in order to optimise the fence opening to suit the tool.
But all too often, clamping is forgotten about afterwards and the jaws are damaged. The optional AutoLock fence jaw clamping system ensures secure clamping of standard and integral fence jaws in a simple and safe manner. The jaws are always clamped securely by spring force and the clamping is only released for setting with the easily accessible levers. Completely without any electrics or pneumatics.
A patented solution: Collision detection and collision avoidance
If, during the set-up process, a tool is accidentally moved onto a collision course, the machine, which is equipped with continuous rotational speed control, detects this and warns the operator. This ensures the highest degree of safety,even for inexperienced operators. The machine software prevents collisions between the machine components (not tools) in the border areas of the travel paths of the table rings and the spindle sleeves. This significantly helps the machine to retain its value.
Arbor quick-change systems
The DornFix standard quick-change system is the perfect solution for everyone wishing to adjust the arbor diameter time and again. On the other hand, the HSK quick-change system is the number one choice for power users who often change the arbor of the complete arbor/tool units.
The system works fully tool-free and is compatible with the CNC processing centres of leading manufacturers. So you can use suitable CNC machining centre tools directly on the spindle moulder without any problem, thereby relieving this expensive machine from capacity-consuming traversing moulding tasks.
