End-Pro and End-Press Low Volume Finger Jointer
The concept of the End Pro finger jointing system is to offer every size woodworking operation a simple, compact, flexible and economic tool to handle their finger jointing needs. This system is designed to work well in small to medium production finger jointing operations.
The actual finger jointing of the materials to be assembled is accomplished on the END PRO. Once the machined blanks leave the END PRO, they are transferred to a glue station. Glue can be applied to the machined blanks in many different ways. From a simple paint brush to a dip pot, from a squeeze bottle with a profiled applicator tip and from a pneumatic hand held gun to a press in glue station.
The END PRESS is an infinite length press type that assembles glued blanks into an endless length of material that will be cut off to the desired finish length. One the glued blanks have been assembled into longer lengths and cured long enough to safely handle, they must usually be cut to a finished length. An undercut saw after the assembly press and to cut to length as the material leaves the press. As the finished cut to length product leaves the cut off saw, it can either be immediately hand stacked onto carts and pallets or it can be automatically moved over onto an accumulation deck or transfer chain.
