Flexibility is becoming more and more important in wood working. To satisfy this need, the drill spindles of the IMAGIC flex can be controlled individually, so they allow for horizontal and vertical drilling including doweling. Set-up for the next work piece is fully automated and does not require any action by the machine operator. This keeps set-up times to a minimum even with complex drilling patterns. The high degree of automation relieves the operator of many tasks, and reduces errors. Reference runs or work piece turners are not needed, and manual interference in the drilling system is a thing of the past.
