WEINIG ProfiJoint: Enormous performance potential for those starting out

WEINIG Kurzholzanlagen

The newly developed ProfiJoint entry model uses the same technology as the “big ones”. A wise investment with an outstanding cost-performance ratio. Due to the modular design, the line can be upgraded to a shaper combination. Just one of the many plus points, including the quick return it offers.

This production line can process wood widths up to 150 (170) mm, wood thicknesses up to 50 (80) mm and wood entry lengths between 150 and 700 mm without any problems.

The cast iron body reduces vibrations in the area where the precision of the finger jointing is paramount. And not forgetting the tool technology: Regardless of whether you are marking vertically or horizontally with pre-scorers, the ProfiJoint range uses the same equipment as the high performance models.

Technical Details

Vertical finger joint

Vertical profile

The vertical finger joint is the most frequently produced type of finger joint in the world. It provides the highest performance in a packaged finger jointing line. The vertical profile is mainly applied in constructive woodworking, but is also used for building windows and frames. It is has the largest glue surface and is therefore the most stable of all finger joints.

Horizontal finger joint

Reverse shoulder profile
Trapeze profile

The half shoulder profile is the second most frequent profile that is run, because it can be used with individual shapers as well as in manual to fully automatic lines. The reverse shoulder profile is mainly used for the simplest lines where, sometimes, no scoring unit is used.

The trapeze profile is also called “American Profile” because this finger joint originates from the US and is usually delivered with a finger joint length of 1/4 inch. Horizontal finger joints are mainly used in furniture construction. The shoulder profiles provide, for example, table plates that look like parquet where only the straight butt joints are visible.

Making good connections

Finger jointing is the best procedure for producing stable longitudinal joints. When the quality is right, lasting connections can be made that reach as far as Malaysia. Tiger Excellent has demonstrated this with a new show of faith. 

Tiger Excellent Wood is a leading manufacturer of semi-finished products from the plantation wood "rubberwood" in Malaysia. Following positive past experiences with complete provider WEINIG, company boss Tiger You has recently made a number of additions to his value chain. With WEINIG, he has always found the components he needed to make his production more efficient and to improve the quality of his products. As a result, a close connection has been formed. Tiger You's most recent coup was to invest in a HS 200+ high-performance finger jointing line with a capacity of 240 parts per minute. In conjunction with the company's existing WEINIG scanner and cross-cutting system, the new technology has helped the company to achieve further increases in capacity with significantly higher wood recovery. Material and wood savings are boosted considerably by the GlueEye Vision automatic glue application monitoring and the Trimsaver measuring and positioning system, which can save 100,000 running meters of wood per year. Other priorities of the Malaysian entrepreneur included robust machine technology and simple operation. The reliable HS 200+ high-tech flat finger jointing line has allowed him to take his production to new levels despite some challenging climatic conditions and the basic qualifications of some of his personnel.
