The Voorwood Model A15 shapes the edge of wood parts in one pass. The A15 is capable of producing 16,000 lineal feet (4,900M) of product per shift. Production rates may vary with part size and operational conditions. MAIN FRAME: The main-frame weldment is fabricated from steel plate. The base is pre-drilled for permanent machine installation. TRANSPORT ASSEMBLY: The transport assembly incorporates an adjustable edge guide, feed drive motor and bottom feed chain. The feed direction is right to left, when viewed from the front of the machine. Substrate is positioned against the edge guide. The bottom feed chain transports the substrate past the shaping station. The transport chain is topped with non-marking polymer pads. BELT HOLDDOWN ASSEMBLY: The steel plate holddown beam is equipped with anti-intrusion hood and non-marking rubber belt. The belt holds the substrate against the bottom pads while the work piece is transported past the shaping station. Digital readout on vertical adjustment hand wheel adjusts for substrate thickness. SHAPING STATION: The shaping station is equipped with a precision balanced drive motor and a unidirectional spindle that has an expanding/contracting body that securely grips the shaper head. The expanding body also contains a drive key that aligns with a shaper head keyway. The quick change is interlocked so that the shaper spindle drive motor cannot be activated when spindle is in the unlocked position. The station is also equipped with an integral dust hood/safety guard.
