Default Cehisa Pro 8 Edgebander

Well here's the new machine. I could have had a really fancy wide belt for what this thing cost. I never really thought I needed one of these (and maybe I don't) but is can't hurt. I've been wanting to speed things up and building frame-less is one way to do it. There's a lot of banding involved when you build frame-less and it's something i've never been really that good at. I get by doing shelves and stuff but it's never came out that clean. So I have a couple of jobs lined up and though "why not". At the AWFS show I stuck my head in quite a few of these things and as Joraft mentioned in another thread I ended up going back to this machine like 3 times. I just loved the whole way it was laid out and how it performed. If you've ever looked at some of these you'd know how messy and complicated they can be. Well here's to hoping it pays for itself sometime soon. I had take some pictures today as I'm printing some out to take notes on when the tech is here. This guy Howard is flying out from North Carolina to spend tomorrow training me on operation and troubleshooting.



Here's the lower panel opened up to show all the goodies. It's PLC controlled and has a VFD controller and Phase Inverter.


It does end trimming on both ends, top and bottom trimming and has buffers too. This model doesn't have "scrapers" or edge rounding. Need another 20 grand or so for those features.





You can add banding that's really thick but it would have to be strips. The guillotine on this machine will cut 3mm banding off the roll. I can't see doing anything over 3mm anyhoo.








Here's a sample panel. This is a high pressure laminate called steel mesh with 2mm aluminum structure banding. The core of this panel is Extira so it's completely water proof.

Chris, congratulations! That's one beautiful machine.

I saw one in action at the AWFS show and I'm still impressed.

Great photos.

Say whut?

That thing is way too complicated for me.
Glad you waited till I was gone to bring it in.

That said, it's very impressive and I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Very nice Chris,

Do you keep an eye on IRS auctions? IRS Auction Calendar They will often have lots of edgebanding that go for Cheap.

Thanks Craig

Craig,

That stuff will probably go for a great price... I just can't see having a pile of it. I'm about at the point with this stuff that I buy it for the job, make up a small sample and toss the rest. Just charge the roll to the job as I hate trying to find a place for all this stuff. :smad:
