HOW MERCHANTS CAN ADD VALUE – PLANE AND SIMPLE


Timber merchants are now able to add value by producing PAR material to special sizes on demand. With the most basic of training, foursided planing with Weinig’s Cube Plus has never been so easy.

Day-to-day, you need machinery that is both robust and simple to operate. The Cube Plus delivers precisely this for easy planing up either to customer order, or to replenish stock quickly. Over 120 of Weinig’s easy-to-use four-sided planers have been sold in the UK.

The latest Cube Plus makes this simple processing machine a must-have for every timber supplier and outlet, with national builders’ merchants Jewsons and Buildbase the latest to take advantage of the simplicity of the Cube Plus. Weinig UK managing director Malcolm Cuthbertson says, “The Weinig Cube Plus is a neat, inexpensive piece of kit that has become an indispensable workhorse of every modern timber facility.

Anyone can use a Cube; simply enter the finish size onto the screen and the lasers assist positioning. Then you simply push timber into the planer. Ease of use, health and safety features and flexibility all come together in Weinig’s Cube”. Exceptionally simple setting is supported by automatic adjustments, and the MoulderPreView (MPV) green and red lasers clearly show exactly how much will be planed off before the timber goes through.

The Cube Plus creates straight, dimensionally accurate, 90-degree right-angled workpieces in a single pass. New features for the Cube Plus include a 10-inch touchscreen, improved chip extraction, noise reduction, and the EasyLock knife change system which enables the operator to change knives without dismounting the cutterhead.
