Advanced machine line for the production of Chevron (Hungarian-Point) floor sections.

The Marinus Powermax Chevron machine is used for end matching in the production of Chevron and Herringbone pattern flooring. Both patterns, ONE machine. The optional automatic cross-cut saw ensures a constant supply of cut-to-size boards.  

A unique feature of the Powermax Chevron is the high-tech in-feed and out-feed system. The feed belts position the material at the optimal distance from the tooling head. During processing, CNC controlled clamps ensure the materials edge is referenced with pneumatic pressure and simultaneously the material is pressed upwards (top of floor) against a fixed reference bar with servo motors. The servo motors ensure consistent firm pressure against the reference bar. This results in absolute miter angle accuracy, eliminating the possibility of “over wood” with a remarkably crisp profile cut.  

This method of production is the most suitable for making chevron and herringbone pattern flooring. 

Why Marinus Powermax Chevron Machine?

The Powermax Chevron cuts and profiles the head and end of flooring boards at precise absolute angles at fixed lengths between 13-3/4” and 47-1/4”. Simple control panel selection of the desired cutting angle at 90°, 45 or -45d°, and 30 or -30° are standard features. The integrated saw consistently ensures boards are processed to the correct length and angle for your Chevron or Herringbone floor.
