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.
