Tools for joints are used for permanent jointing of wooden elements. In window and construction woodworking this solution is used to obtain long elements from shorter ones. After removing all material flaws (knags, ripped parts, cracks, resin contamination), short elements are jointed together to obtain material which is stronger and mechanically more resistant compared to a single, solid (not glued) element. It can be especially important when long wooden elements are subject to deformation caused by weather conditions (window profiles, doors, building constructions etc.). Additional advantage of the jointing process is reduction of production waste.
Tools for jointing are offered as brazed cutters with high steel tips (HSS) or high steel with additional coating (HP), with carbide tips (HM) and as cutter heads with exchangeable inserts HSS or HP. They are designed for longitudinal and cross jointing. Joint sizes are standardized and we keep these measures when designing our products.
For pitch size (distance between neighbouring joint fingers) we use one of the standard values: 3,8; 4,0 or 6,2 mm. Standard height includes joints of 4 mm, 10 mm, 15 mm and 20 mm. The tools are designed for machines with cutting / formatting unit or without.
Apart from the wide range of standard jointing tools, FABA offers also tools according to individual customer’s needs in order to optimize and adjust the construction to the machine, working conditions, material type and customer’s expectations to guarantee efficient work. Depending on customer’s needs, cutters for jointing are offered as single tools or sets of cutters.
The most popular types of cutters and sets of cutters for jointing are available from stock. Production time of non-standard sizes and tools on customer’s request is about 10 days.
