Structured surfaces: A Hi Tech product.
Antique optics is up-to-date again: being sawed, stamped, planed, scraped or structured, the customers love the natural look of these wood surfaces.
As a woodworking machine builder MB has to adapt to these new trends to offer to the customer adequate solutions. For this purpose MB presented a complete new design to the market to adapt to the requirements of this industrial application.
Since the customers come from the furniture or panel industry and want to stand out from their competitors respectively by fine variations, a structuring machine needs a given flexibility and precision. Further a deep insight in tooling is needed, based on long time experience.
The heavy duty MB Roba Struktumat series offers, connected with the knowledge around this technology, best prerequisites to achieve a satisfactory result.
The welded heavy steel construction of the Struktumat is prerequisite for the installation of efficient tools with a diameter of 250 mm to run without any vibration. Extremely powerful motors up to 15 kW drive the structuring brushes and guarantee high penetration depths at stable rotational speeds.
The basic machine Struktumat 1300/3 is equipped with three processing aggregates. Fewer aggregates mean obviously that compromises on the result have to be made in respect to the achieved visual impression and surface quality. Especially in hardwood operations this is important.
A spiral drum with steel wires in dense trimming is "tearing up" the wood surface to prepare it for the post-processing. During this process step the wood surface is carved while the intensity is depending on the involved tool. Soft wood grain is worked out more deeply than the hard annual rings.
This process produces up standing wood fibres, particularly unavoidably if you work against the wood grain. These must be eliminated since otherwise the haptics and appearance of the stained, lacquered or oiled surfaces would be unacceptable.
