The mechanical engineering expert Wintersteiger AG from Upper Austria has specialized in niche markets with impressive success since its inception in 1953. One of the main strands of the Group is its Woodtech division, which is highly renowned for its state-of-the-art thin-cutting technology, used all over the world for manufacturing lamellas. The company's ability to ensure narrow kerfs, finest accuracy, a ready-to-glue surface and immediate further processing of the lamellas without the need for any interim steps offers major advantages to its industrial customers. Its extensive product range encompasses thin-cutting frame saws and band saws, blade sharpening machines, carbide and Stellite® saw blades, and technologies for gluing and pressing. Wintersteiger is attending DOMOTEX 2019 to showcase its new modular DSB Twinhead NG XM thin-cutting band saw.
The letters NG stand for New Generation - reflecting the company's steely determination to set entirely new standards with the DSB Twinhead NG XM. The compact basic configuration with a cutting width of up to 310 millimeters and a kerf starting at 1.0 millimeter in the core two-module version achieves previously unknown efficiency and thus an almost unbeatable price-performance ratio. Even on its own, the core machine already generates significant economic benefits in lines such as parquet flooring, laminate boards, furniture, windows or doors. The innovative design of the DSB Twinhead NG XM ensures maximum ease of access to all the sawing units and its mechanical parts, despite its appreciably more compact format. On top of all that, the time taken for set-up, adjustments and changing the blades has been minimized thanks to ergonomic improvements.
