The A26 Cope Shaper is designed to shape single or multiple parts in one pass. Each shaping station is equipped with a precision-balanced drive motor and spindle. The counter-rotating spindles cut against the direction of feed. Spindles can be configured with quick change, HSK, or stacked tooling. Parts can be quickly transferred from left or right shapers for end-to-end cope cuts (for tenon joint). Both edge guide assemblies are removable, which allows cope cuts on parts longer than 36”. Automatic power feed has two-handed cycle control for operator safety. The A26 Cope Shaper comes with a backer block to prevent blowout.
The A26 Cope Shaper’s pneumatic hold-down clamps with non-marring urethane pads are mounted at each end of the transport table to secure the workpieces as close to the cutting head as possible. Bi-directional clamping ensures consistently square cuts. The cope shaper produces parts similar to most double-side cope shapers.
The A15 Stile and Rail Shaper straight cuts inside edges on the stiles, rails, and the outside edges (long-grain). This is the only machine on the market with the capability of shaping small parts. Spindles can be configured with quick change, HSK, or stacked tooling.
The A515 Single-End Tenoner can accommodate four shaping/sanding stations. Clockwise and counter-clockwise rotations are used on specific shapers to eliminate rejects and produce the highest quality finished part. A PLC controlled servo motor drives the shaper horizontally as a function of the transporter speed to produce a pre-programmed contour.
