New Conturex 125 Vario Furniture -
flexible and highly productive
WEINIG has made a further addition to the
Conturex CNC system with a new solution
for furniture and frame construction. The
Conturex 125 Vario Furniture is based upon
proven patented clamping table technology
and combines maximum output with optimal
flexibility. The new development is designed
as a double-part system with special individual
There is practically no decorative profile or wall
cladding that Finnish company Maler, based
in Ylivieska, cannot make. In order to balance
product diversity, quality and price, the com-
pany invested in a new WEINIG
Turbo-S 1000 finger- jointing line.
Finger-jointing lines can optimally utilize even lower
quality material. Jani Oikari, Managing Director of
Maler, was optimistic from the outset: “Finger jointing
is the key to efficient production.; Consequently,
he invested in a Turbo-S 1000 along with various
customer;specific options. ;e turned to WEINIG and
our Finnish representative Penope in Lahti following
years of positive experiences. “When you are investing
such an amount, you also want to be certain that the
required production capacity will be achieved,” says
Following consistent strong growth, the company
now has to fill a 12,000 m2 warehouse while also
fulfilling special requests quickly and at a reasonable
price. Maler serves both DIY stores and industrial
customers, imposing high standards in terms of
volume, delivery times, quality and consistency.
The new system will precisely align the very delicate
and short pieces lengthwise and transport these to
the milling and gluing station. Thanks to the WEINIG
Trimsaver system with two laser measuring units,
parts cut at angles are detected and accurately
aligned. With an upgrade, these parts can even be
discharged at the separation station by switching the
belt into reverse. This means no more open joints and
ultimately, an increased timber yield. Work pieces
with wane are centered at each belt transfer so that
no wood can get jammed. Maler then uses these
resources for profiles on which this area will be
removed anyway. This ensures the manufacturer
gains maximum yield from its raw materials.
“We advised Maler to use a 7mm joint to almost
eradicate tears,” says WEINIG expert Dirk Bartens.
The customer was convinced by the results. They are
delighted with the consistently high jointing quality.
Austrian carpentry firm Nagl specializes in
windows. To ensure the required precision,
the company has worked with WEINIG
technology for many years.
Axamer Lizum is the largest ski resort in the vicinity of
Innsbruck and is also home to Nagl. The small business
supplies primarily private customers with wood and
wood/aluminum window elements, with some 2,500
units designed and produced each year. The company
has been using WEINIG machines in its production
for 40 years. However, requirements in the market
have changed dramatically in recent years. Today, the
reality for Nagle includes individually designed windows,
special sizes of up to 6 x 12 meters, and stronger
profiles due to multiple glazing. ;Our old WEINIG
system could no longer meet these requirements so
we had to look around,” says Franz Nagl.
Ultimately, they decided on WEINIG technology once
again. “WEINIG plays a leading role in the window
manufacturing sector, so it made sense to stick with
the brand,” says Nagl. The new Powermat 700
moulder and Conturex Compact CNC machine are
designed specially for profitable window production
for smaller operations. Nagle chose these machines
due to their potential for flexible single;part production
with relatively short set-up times. The two machines

are now responsible for the complete processing of
windows. The Powermat 700 performs pre-planing
on all four sides of the window scantlings. Then, the
Conturex Compact takes over and completes all
required work stages in a single pass. Window frames
can be produced in their entirety. “With the Conturex,
we can produce all corner joints required by the
market as well as processing slanted and round work
pieces,” says a delighted Franz Nagl.

Speed and accuracy are among the main attributes
of Weinig’s Easyscan Eagle which was designed
and built in Europe exclusively for the U.S. market.
The state-of-the-art scanning technology is used for
softwoods as well as hardwoods. The Easyscan Eagle
features four-sided inspection for chop applications
and processes up to 20 boards per minute.
Smaller companies often struggle with making the
leap into the digital age of production. They have
particular reservations in terms of cost-effectiveness.
Now the Weinig EasyScan C has arrived to allay all
remaining concerns, with affordable price points that
provide the opportunity for increasing profits.
The is no doubt that scanning technology increases
the quality of end products. The Easyscan Eagle also
has the ability to control the quality of end products
according to iindividual customers’ needs.
