CWI Woodworking Technologies is proud to offer our extremely high quality EU series of edgebanders, manufactured by Roi in our factory in Spain with the latest in technologies available today. The Roi EU series of machines are available in 3mm, 5mm and 8mm edging capacities and offer options like pre-milling, glue scraping, edge scraping, corner rounding, nesting tracers, spray lubricants and PUR glue capabilities.
The Roi CWI-EB500EU-XP model edgebander is a 5mm solid wood capacity machine which offers extreme performance and excellent value but includes very advanced features that are usually found on larger and more expensive machines. The EB500EU-XP is the same machine as the EB500EU except we have added a pre-milling Station. The small footprint of this machine, at 3829 mm (151”) in length with the tape support table installed, allows the machine to fit many workshops. This means that shops which are limited on space do not have to sacrifice the quality of machine and can produce edge results that they can be proud to present to their customers.
The Roi EB500EU-XP comes standard with Dual H/F motor diamond pre-milling, touch screen controls with self-diagnostics, top/bottom trimming, saw blade end trimming, high frequency motors, edge/radius scraping, glue scraping and buffing. It is the ideal machine for a mid-size production shop looking to build very high quality finished product in kitchen cabinet or millwork production. Options for this machine in different configurations include corner rounding and PUR glue options.
The control panel of the machine is a 7” color touch screen OMRON NB series user friendly control with direct connection to the PLC, providing quick access and monitoring of all machine functions like start/stop, program editing, parameters check & editing, alarms visualization, PLC I/O diagnostics, all in real time. This LCD screen with LED back lighting also offers multi-language support and 128 Mb of memory for storage of screen data and job programs. The Synchronization of all working units is controlled by an encoder system. Pneumatic tubing is over-sized to allow for adequate air to the units as they require to perform functions continually and perfectly synchronized in a production environment.
The Pre-milling station uses two independent high frequency motors which power two diamond milling cutterheads. The cutterheads have a diameter of 60mm and a height of 30mm (opt. 65mm) and use diamond insert tooling cutters. The pressure of the pre-milling station is pneumatically controlled and guarantees not only a perfectly straight, square and chip free working surface, but also allows for a considerably better glue penetration into the freshly milled panel assuring a higher quality bond and glue line.
The structure of the Roi edgebander is built with a ridged center beam, which is made of precision machined steel for mounting all the various working groups. This robust construction prevents the transfer of vibration from the high frequency motors to the work piece. The steel pressure beam of the machine is equipped with a dual row of rubber wheels, which hold the panel firmly to the high quality 75mm wide drive chain below it, ensuring a solid grip for perfect tape application and machining.
The removable quick change gluepot features dual temperature probes, so the glue temperature is not only consistent in the pot itself, but at the glue roller as well where it meets the panel for maximum adhesion efficiency. The edging material is pressed onto the panel by a power driven cylindrical steel pressure roller, followed by a second and third, smaller diameter free running conical rollers to ensure solid contact of the material to the top and bottom edges of the panel.
Front and rear end trimming is carried out by dual 100mm diameter saw blades on a high frequency motor trim station which is supported on a prismatic guideway. The end trimming station follows the panel by means of reference pads on this guideway to ensure soft, precise trimming of the front and rear edges. Top and bottom trimming is carried out by two independent high frequency driven trimming units. These units are equipped with horizontal and vertical tracers for precise referencing of the panel edge to be trimmed. Large diameter rollers are used for these tracing station to minimize damaged caused by the tracing stations and allow for the use of high gloss and 3D effect panels and edges.
The edge/radius scraping station gives the finishing touch on the radius of the PVC/ABS edging after the top and bottom trimming units to eliminate any tooling marks from the trimming station. The station is equipped with dust collection and air blowers to ensure a clean working surface and is guided by rollers for both horizontal and vertical tracing.
A glue scraping station follows the edge/radius scraping station which is designed to remove any remaining glue residue as well as perfectly match any remaining edging to the top and bottom edges of the panel. The glue scraping station uses floating knives to follow the panel edge perfectly and is equipped with dual air blowing nozzles to ensure that scraping station tracers are kept clean to ensure accuracy.
Finally, the material passes through the buffing station, which consists of two independent units with tilting motors and hard cotton buffing wheels. The buffing station is designed to remove any remaining glue residue, restore the colors of the pvc/abs edging and polish the edge finish after the trimming and scraping operations.
The machines mechanical, electrical and electronic parts are covered by a 12 month warranty and is fully certified for use in Canada to CSA standards.
The Roi EU series of edgebanders are truly the most advanced small to mid-sized shop machines available today with features, performance and technology that has proven to be a machine users will love to own and use.
