KRAFT Maschinenbau at LIGNA 2019 – bigger and with a new design

Over the past 200 years, G. KRAFT Maschinenbau GmbH has developed from a forge for constructing carts to a manufacturer of agricultural machinery to an important international manufacturer of special-purpose machinery. The market for flexible and economic solutions of machinery and equipment for the woodworking industry is constantly changing. With KRAFT’s wide product range you can make your production are more productive, flexible and future-oriented. KRAFT develops new and innovative solutions perfectly tailored to the customers’ needs … everything from a single source!
Of course, KRAFT should not be missing at LIGNA 2019.

Next to the already established product range, the focus of the presentation is on new developments in the following areas: formatting lines | double end tenoners | sawing technologies, production lines for doors and frames, warehouse and material handling system, robotics, automation technology, packaging solutions, as well as services.

At a much bigger exhibition booth than at LIGNA 2017, KRAFT will be exhibiting two machines in hall 15, booth no. F60: for the very first time a double end tenoner of the new generation and a fitting assembly machine for door frames.

The newest generation of KRAFT double end tenoners shines with a new and appealing design of the noise control and dust cover with greater vision panels and ergonomically designed hand grip elements. Furthermore, the double end tenoner is equipped with narrow transport chains. With this 40mm transport chain and a belt transport system with a width of only 17mm, feed speeds of up to 200 m/min can be achieved. At the same time, flexible and high-precision processing of narrow (80mm in width or even 57mm with special chain plates) and wide workpieces is possible on a machine with two chain tracks. The milling units can be adjusted precisely and very easily by a digital display wit setpoint selection, amongst others by the use of a tool management system or a servo-driven adjustment. The feed mechanism of the exhibited double end tenoner is designed with a highly dynamic servo drive solution in the drive control unit so that the conventional feed shaft is no longer required.

The exhibited fitting assembly machine for door frames automatically assembles hinge pockets and strike plates of individual designs. The wall thickness can vary between 60mm and 600mm, the frame length between 550mm and 2600mm. The workpiece is aligned and positioned for a precise assembly. Customer specific crews can be fed and screwed by the use of screwdriving technology with pressurized air. Three parts per minute can be assembled this way.

Additionally, KRAFT presents itself with a welcoming lounge area and an Italian coffee van. Enjoy a hot cup of coffee prepared by a professional barista and get some of our tasty breakfast snacks for a powerful start into a successful day at LIGNA 2019.
