Das neue Kraftpaket aus dem Hause HOFMANN die Dickenhobelmaschine Typ D 636

Anläßlich der Ligna in Hannover stellte HOFMANN die neue Dickenhobelmaschine Typ D 636, das Nachfolgemodell zur bewährten D 632 vor. Das neue moderne Design des gesamten Maschinenprogramms findet hier seine Fortführung. Natürlich wurde die Maschine aber auch technisch weiter modernisiert und verbessert. Die Dickentischverstellung erfolgt über ein modernes Bedienpanel mit Tastern für die Verstellung im Eil- oder Schleichgang sowie durch Antippen Verstellung im 1/10 mm Bereich. Optional ist auch eine Positioniersteuerung mit 250 Speicherplätzen möglich. Ein Betriebsstundenzähler ist bereits enthalten. Praktisches Detail, das in der Maschine integrierte Zubehörfach. Bei der Konstruktion wurde wiederum auf den guten Breitennutzungsfaktor von nur 1,7 wert gelegt (umso kleiner der Faktor umso weniger Platzbedarf ist nötig). Ein weiterer Vorteil ist, dass der Absaugstutzen der standardmäßig links sitzt ganz einfach auf rechts umgebaut werden kann, sollten die Gegebenheiten vor Ort das erfordern. Die bewährten Details der Premiummaschinen aus dem Hause Hofmann sind selbstverständlich auch in diesem Modell enthalten. So sorgen zwei Gummiauszugswalzen für satten Durchzug. Der Dickentisch ist neben den vier Hubspindeln zusätzlich vierfach geführt. Zudem ist der Gusstisch feinst gehobelt. Das dadurch entstehende Luftpolster lässt das Werkstück leichter gleiten. Die Walzen sind schwingend gelagert und jede Walze ist separat auf beiden Seiten einstellbar. Größter Wert wurde bei der Entwicklung auch auf das Thema Lärm gelegt, so dass die Maschine über sehr gute Emissionswerte verfügt.

Moulder TFS 107 available with variable speed


Was our "smallest" only available with 4 speeds so far, continuously variable speed regulation is also optionally available now. The frequency controlled 7.5 kW engine offers a range of 1,500 to 10,000 rpm. The adjustment takes place in steps by hundreds or thousands. A fully adjustable speed offers a higher value of working quality. Another advantage is the time savings by the fast and comfortable speed change.

As another novelty the machine is now deliverable with modern milling technology including a 5,7“ touchscreen. This machine enables really perfect the entrance into the world of CNC-technology! Depending on the type of the machine, 'height' and 'milling angle' are CNC-controlled axes. The control can be expanded to direct up to 4 axes. It also provides up to 99999 program- and tool storage places. It's distinguished by an especially easy and self-explaning operator interface. All the symbols are text-supported, that guarantees an intuitive operating all the time. Additionally there's an information and hint line, which helps the operator with tips, what to do next.

HOFMANN combined surface & thickness planer type AD 515 / 635 - the evolution of a success story


From now on the successor of the proven AD 514 / 634 is available in modern design and new colouring. The unique handling - surface and thickness planing without up-folding the tables even at the same time - didn't change of course. The machine got a new central, ergonomically convenient operation control. On the operating place there is an additional on- and off-switch right now. Another improvement is the new self-locking lever for adjusting the chip removal. Right now it hasn't to be clamped as before.

HOFMANN Pointer - now as universal solution for all surface materials


No matter, if wired and integrated in the machine control or as an external solution: you can save a lot of valuable time with the new HOFMANN Pointer and measure your tools to zero very fast and exactly...and from now on this works on all surface materials!
The zero-setting device for shapers, the HOFMANN Pointer, has been decisively improved: so far it only worked on non-coated metallic surfaces, but now it works on all kind of surface materials reliably! As far as the zero-point has been reached, it puts an optical signal as well as an acoustical one. If integrated in the control of the machine, it sets the incremental amount of the choosen axis automatically to zero.
Consequently the pointer is now universally usable on all machines, where setting a zero-point is needed - no matter, if HOFMANN or external brand. Therefore it works perfectly as an upgrade for existing machines!
