STEINERT a family run business, have excelled in showcasing technical creativity with undaunted spirit for the past 125 years. STEINERT took over the machine manufacturer WEMA in 2018, after acquiring a rich source of relevant specialist mechanical engineering expertise. Now, at LIGNA 2019 they are ready to introduce the fully automated CNC lathe Minimat 65 for the series production of turned wooden parts up to 65 mm in diameter. The lathe features two turning supports that are both CNC-controlled.
The machine is also equipped with a pneumatically controlled drilling and parting support. The turning supports can be fitted with either profile blades or copying turning tools, thus it can function with the traditional arrangement of two profile blades facing each other.
The machine further allows the user to combine a copying turning tool with a profile blade or to use two – or, if necessary, three – different copying turning tools. This flexibility allows for a wide variety of workpiece geometries. Positioning the turning supports directly behind the steady rest ensures outstanding turning quality. Finally, the WEMA Minimat 65 CNC is extremely cost-effective, and can be hence used by both small and midsized wood working professionals and businesses. Now, by using the machine one can quickly produce creative wood products in a cost effective way.
