Tools for joints produced by FABA are designed for permanent jointing of wooden elements. Finger heights are regulated by DIN standards according to which we realize our applications. The standard heights of fingers are 10 mm, 15 mm and 20 mm. Additionally, we divide our tools into two types - for machines with and without finger formatting (cutting):
- 10/10, 15/15, 20/20 - for machines without formatting/cutting unit
- 10/11, 15/16,5, 20/22 - for machines with formatting/cutting unit
Machines with cutting unit allow for regulation of joint clamping force which is important due to inaccuracies resulting from regrinding of tools. Machines without cutting unit allow for saving on costs of this operation (cost of the tool + time) but they require very precise regrinding in order to maintain the required depth of joints made on the machine.
In this chapter we present a range of offered tools for different joint depths, divided into brazed cutters and cutter heads with exchangeable knives. For solid wood we generally recommend using blades from high speed cutting steel and for chipboard and MDF carbide blades. Please, pay attention to pictograms symbolizing recommended usage of the tools. With orders, please give also detailed information about kind of wood, type of the machine, feed and other important information concerning the work, which will enable us to suggest the right tools.
