"flexClick" chamfering cutter with dual-profile technology based on ballpoint pen principle

The functional principle of a ballpoint pen is the basis of this chamfering cutter for small edge banding machines. It is possible to switch over automatically between 2 profiles.
The functional principle of a ballpoint pen is the basis of this chamfering cutter for small edge banding machines. It is possible to switch over automatically between 2 profiles.

The new flexClick cutter is used for rounding and chamfering plastic edge bands and MDF edges in furniture production.
 
The innovation of this diamond-tipped cutter is the automatic adjustment option between profile 1 and profile 2.
It is based on the ballpoint pen principle and works mechanically. This means that customers get twos profile with one tool. Switchover between profiles is done by pressing the tool at standstill on a copy wheel, thus actuating the mechanism.
 
No complicated motor controllers are required. The new cutter is available for machines from Homag Kantentechnik GmbH and can also be used without problems on standard motors of existing machines. The flexClick cutters are delivered along with the adjustment mechanism.
 
This option of the dual-profile technology is ideal for small edge banding machines and companies that want to produce small lot sizes with low set-up requirements.
 
A patent application has been filed for this innovative and at the same time easy-to-use principle for profile change together with the machine manufacturer Homag.
