The profiler unit is designed for profiling one sideboard per side on first and/or second pass. A tool unit consisting of a profiler head and a saw blade mounted at right angles is installed for each corner.
The tool units of each side can be commonly adjusted in horizontal direction. An independent positioning of all four units is possible in vertical direction.
A patented tool unit per corner consisting of a profiler head and a saw blade mounted at right angles produces high quality lumber surfaces.
The synchronous tool run is guaranteed by a specially developed high performance gear which allows a meshing arrangement of the tools.
Profiler unit VPM / N 450 for continuous path-controlled diagonal profiling
The tool units of each machine side can be tilted via a common axis in or against feed direction and simultaneously adjusted in height in the machine housing.
The vertical adjustment is done by a continuous path control and hydraulic servo cylinders.
This function allows the diagonal profiling of a sideboard considering the log/cant shape.
The lumber recovery achieved this way corresponds with the one of a board edger plant with diagonal alignment.
Profiler unit VPM / S 450
for active curve profiling
The profiler unit VPM /S is equipped with vertical pivoting axes within the machine which allow the independent pivoting of the profilers on both sides. This machine design is suited to be used for active curve profiling in the recut.
