The Powermat 2400 offers you both a high-performance platform for the demanding requirements of everyday multiple shift operation as well as great flexibility. This is assured by a modular system with a wide range of aggregates, tools and feed speed solutions. The modular design and large number of options enables the most diverse applications.
Whether planing beams at 10 m/min or producing mouldings at 100 m/min; whether 4,000 rpm or up to 12,000 rpm – we can build the ideal Powermat 2400 for your requirements. With spindle speeds up to 12,000 rpm, jointing technology and strong feed systems, the system provides optimal conditions for series production in the legendary WEINIG surface quality. The Powermat 2400 is truly state-of-the-art technology in profiling.
The Powermat 2400 already fulfills high demands as a stand-alone machine. However, the full potential could be far greater. 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 Powermat 2400.
Different requirements - different prices

WEINIG challenges itself to manage resources efficiently in a number of ways – including via modern planing technology, which opens up the potential for material savings. This particularly makes solid wood construction timber (KVH) and glulam timber, which are pre-planed in order to make it easier for the scanner to examin the surface, more profitable.
The opposing floating spindles that follow the curve of the wood plane the glulam lamellae, for example, in parallel in the same width and this reduces the chip removal to a minimum.
The gaps between the work pieces required by the floating spindles increases the risk of impact on the first bottom spindle. The spindle mounted at a 30° angle to the machine table avoids this effect. Heavy pressure elements can also be used from above, which enable minimal chip removal at the horizontal spindles.
Jointing technology and hydro tools produce excellent surface quality. Together with the WEINIG PowerLock system, they are unbeatable. In the Powermat 2400, you can choose this combination and easily benefit from it: Jointed tools developed by WEINIG ensure that all knives in the cutterhead have an absolutely identical cutting circle.
This means PowerLock produces excellent surface quality at up to 10,000 rpm and maximum feed speeds! Both the straight jointer for four-sided planing – automatic or manual operation – and the fully automatic profile jointer can be used. WEINIG know-how and experience guarantee complete process reliability of our leading edge technology.
Depending on the condition of the raw material, it may be advisable to have a strong 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.
Options for extension
The WEINIG System enhances your Powermat 2400 to become a highly efficient overall concept that raises productivity. The individual system modules fit together like building blocks to produce the perfect result.
Added value with rods
When it comes to producing rods, the Powermat 2400 impresses with its outstanding repetition precision and high surface quality. The PowerLock tool, PowerCom axis control and a feed system specially adapted to the production task make the Powermat 2400 the best performing profiling machine in the world.
Underpass axes for pallets, barrel staves and all other non-continuous grooves are a challenge for production. With the CNC-controlled WEINIG jumping spindle, you can integrate this demanding processing reliably into your production process and achieve high cycle rates.
Areas of application
Produce innovative products economically
Creative surfaces are in fashion, whether for furniture frontages, flooring or facades. Previously, things that you could only produce at high cost by hand or in processing centers can now by produced in the moulder in one run.
The WEINIG structure planing technology makes it possible to move the spindle relative to the work piece as it is fed through and in this way to create a three-dimensional surface. Using CAD software the structured surfaces can be checked and simulated in advance and then actually produced on the moulder.
This puts WEINIG at the forefront again, setting new standards with this new development that could open up new market opportunities for you. You can let your creativity run wild with this technology, producing new products - along with short run times, high productivity and low unit costs.
Our core competence
Profiling mouldings of all types has always been WEINIG’s core competence. Profiling includes a wide range of end products that nevertheless set the same challenges for machine technology: high levels of profile precision with excellent surface quality and regular cuttermarks.
WEINIG technology is always setting new standards in this area. The basis for this are the solid machine bases with precise machine tables and the fence at exactly the right angle to this. The superiority of the WEINIG machines is seen overall when dynamics are brought into the equation: spindles with high true running accuracy, a strong feed system and the corresponding pressure elements.
The perfect interaction of these components guarantees smooth transportation in a defined position through the machine. The result is the legendary WEINIG quality of your products: high profile precision, excellent surface quality and regular cuttermarks.
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!
