WEINIG Hydromat 3000: The robust moulder for entry into the Hydromat series
The variety of products in industrial solid wood processing is immense. However, no matter which market you are servicing, with the Hydromat 3000 you have a wood processing machine that will meet your performance requirements. The Hydromat 3000 offers you both a high-performance platform for the demanding requirements of everyday multiple shift operation.
Whether planing beams and/or producing mouldings – we can build the ideal Hydromat 3000 for your requirements. With feed speeds of up to 100 m/min, jointing technology and robust pressure elements, it offers the best prerequisites for serial production in legendary WEINIG surface quality. The Hydromat 3000 is truly state-of-the-art technology in profiling.
By upgrading the machine with the PowerMech automation system, you can increase efficiency significantly further. The PowerMech modules are the key to maximum profitability and optimal productivity. The functional units range from an infeed or outfeed system through scanning and conveying to packing and stacking. With the high level of automation you can decide how far you want to exploit the amazing capabilities of your Hydromat 3000.
Different requirements - different prices
The price of a WEINIG machine is just as individual as your requirements are. Therefore, let us discuss briefly what is most important to you – you will then receive our preliminary, non-binding quote.

Depending on the condition of the raw material, it may be advisable to strengthen the machine infeed. Particularly with bent, damp or heavy pieces, it is advisable to have a strong machine infeed that supports the transport of parts through the machine.
The 3-roller infeed ensures optimal feeding force for strips and boards, particularly when combined with infeed mechanization. A heavier version is available in the 4-roller infeed with two opposing roller pairs. In either case, it is not possible to straighten the work piece.
HydroLock outboard bearing
Hydraulic outboard bearings and fast, convenient tool changing have long been mutually exclusive. But now the HydroLock system is revolutionizing both the (dis)assembly of the outboard bearing and tool changing.
With the HydroLock outboard bearing, time-consuming set-up using a grease gun is a thing of the past. Instead, only an Allen key is required to compress the grease chamber and build up the required pressure. A pin is used to check the tension. In combination with the HydroLock tools, this results in a conclusive operating concept that is both simple and time-saving!
Jointing technology and hydro tools produce excellent surface quality. In the Hydromat 3000, you can choose this combination and benefit from it: Jointed tools developed by WEINIG ensure that all knives in the cutterhead have an absolutely identical cutting circle. Both the fully automatic straight jointer for four-sided planing and the fully automatic profile jointer can be used.
The jointers automatically move with the spindle during radial adjustment, so that no manual intervention is necessary. WEINIG know-how and experience guarantee complete process reliability of our leading edge technology.

Temperature monitoring of spindle bearings
The failure of a machining spindle, resulting in standstill of the entire machine, is a costly affair. Temperature monitoring of the spindle bearings ensures high process reliability and prevents unplanned production downtimes.
Areas of application
4 sides planed
Perfectly right-angled work pieces
Wood is a natural material and that influences the requirements that are involved for processing it. Wood can contain defects, it can be bent or warped. For many applications, therefore, e.g. for furniture, it is essential that the work pieces are planed on all four sides. The key thing here is that the work pieces are accurately straightened and that they have perfect angles after being processed.
This may sound easy, but in many cases it is not, because the production precision of the machine has a significant influence on the quality of the end product. You can always rely on the famous WEINIG quality. WEINIG offers many different solutions, from manual to fully automatic operation and from machines for occasional use to machines in continuous shift operation.
The importance of solid wood as a construction material has grown constantly over the last few years. This means that there are high demands on the surface quality, particularly for the visible areas. The largest area of application are beams, which are planed on 4 sides and chamfered.
Depending on your requirements, WEINIG offers the right solution, from a small machine to a large line; but they have one thing in common: a high level of flexibility because of the 90° chamfering unit.
The chamfering unit is used to produce the fourth chamfer on the beam after the other chamfers have been produced by the vertical spindles and the horizontal top spindle. The chamfering unit control means that dimensions can be changed quickly and a change in the strength of the chamfer can be made without changing the tool and simply by positioning the spindles.
With this technology WEINIG enables small companies to work with the same economy as a large organization.
Planing glulam lamellae
Glulam is increasingly being used in recent years and therefore more and more importance is being given to planing glued laminated timber lamellae. This depends on achieving a glueable surface at high speed with the lowest level of chip removal. Even the curve of the timber does not make a difference, and can be kept, because the lamellae are glued afterwards and then finally planed again.
WEINIG meets this challenge with innovative machine technology. The combination of slanted horizontal spindles and floating vertical spindles allows the lamellae to be planed with a minimum of chip removal on all four sides while maintaining the curvature of the wood. These WEINIG solutions increase material yield and thus also resource efficiency.
In industrial wood processing, material yield plays an ever greater role. Scanners are used in this context to identify places with defects and to cut them out. Pre-planing is necessary at the start of the entire chain in order to provide the scanner with a clean surface. Accordingly, chip removal should be minimal and a high feed speed is usually required.
In this segment, WEINIG offers both simple solutions with excellent value for money, as well as innovative solutions with unique technology: from hydro-tools to jointers, slanted spindles and floating spindles up to a feed speed of 300 m/min. As well as the necessary machine technology, WEINIG, of course, also offers suitable mechanization. We can meet your pre-planing needs perfectly!
