Tool makers Leitz has been an important partner in technology for Oberkochen especially in the technology tuning for Hunger for over ten years. Leitz and Hunger once again advances joining when attaching the edges. “Möbelfertigung” reported back in 2013 on the “Duo multi-profile scraper” from Leitz, a result of an application at Hunger, with which stress whitening and frame effects on high-gloss fronts can be avoided during laser edging. Recently, another topic has been on the agenda at Leitz and Hunger: Joining when attaching the edges.
Recently there is another step forward. Another system has been ordered for autumn 2021. Again with the Quattro joining concept – but with a different technology. The two finishing assemblies above and below will work in parallel. The protective cutter continues to work in the opposite direction and now adds the first three centimeters. The pre-milling cutter works as a counter-rotation and mills the machining allowance down to a 5/10 glue joint.
Outstanding product quality paired with long tool life: These are important parameters of the production at Hunger Möbelproduktions GmbH. In order to keep taking a step forward in both areas, the Westphalia are continuously revising tool concepts that have been tried and tested over many years with their tool supplier Leitz.
Always striving for the optimum – that is what Hunger Möbelproduktions GmbH from Bünde is committed to. And that’s why he keeps refining applications, such as the current joining process for edge bonding. “We have made a name for ourselves in the market because we have mastered narrow surface sealing and produce excellent product quality,” explains owner Oliver Hunger. “This also means that we keep putting all processes to the test and evaluating where something could be improved or where a process could be more reliable.”
“As a result, the quality of the cut is many times better. We have fewer breakouts on the surfaces. And also significantly less in the central position of the frame, ”says Vogelpohl. “For comparison: a jointing device running in the opposite direction always pulls a chip out of the panel. With synchronism we have the opposite effect and the chip is more likely to be pressed in. In cooperation with Leitz, we thought about this and tried out whether it also worked as desired. We have equipped and tested a test system for this. The format cut is simply even cleaner than the conventional tool concepts. “
