The pneumatically operated Hoffmann X-25 bench-top routing machine is designed for custom picture framing and woodworking operations.

This machine is one of the most popular models for custom picture framers and it is used for a wide range of joining operations, including miter joints with different angles, end-to-end and T-joints, etc.

Compared to the smaller and lighter X-15 model, the machine has a larger table (and therefore more material support) and it is capable of processing larger material. 

Compared to the similar sized X-20, the machine features pneumatic operation via foot pedal instead of manual actuation which makes handling large moulding and bigger custom frames much easier.

The maximum material thickness is 4” and the maximum routing stroke is 3”.

The Hoffmann X-25 bench-top routing machine is equipped with a high speed router motor, located at the center of the machine. The routing operation is started by pressing a pneumatic foot pedal. A hold down plate is lowered onto the workpiece, pressing it on the table and holding it in place, then the motor carriage travels up and the router bit moves into the workpiece. When the pre-set routing height is reached, the operator releases the foot pedal, the motor carriage returns to its home position and the clamp releases the workpiece.

The motor is switched on automatically when the motor carriage starts to move up, it is switched off again when the carriage has returned to its home position.  Steel guide rails (20mm diameter), secured to the motor carriage, guarantee true and square alignment of the motor.

Output is approx. 16 routing strokes per minute, which translates into 2 completely processed rectangular frames. These numbers include material handling, but obviously depend on routing depth, feed speed, material flow and operator performance as well.

The semi-automatic, pneumatic operation of this machine has multiple benefits compared to the manually operated models:

  • Long, large or heavy workpieces are held securely with both hands during the routing process, no need to reach for and pull the main handle manually.
  • Production speed can be increased, especially when processing small and medium sized parts as hands are free to move new stock in and remove finished parts form machine table.
  • Tool and motor life is increased due to consistent upward and return movement of motor carriage – operator does not manually control routing speed. Damage due to slow movement (burned router bit) or fast movement (strain on motor and bearings) is greatly reduced. Of course upward and return feed rates can be individually adjusted with flow-control valves on main cylinder for best results in any given material.
  • Overall more comfortable and easy to use operation.

The supplied router bit is solid tungsten carbide, made to exacting specifications. Depending on the routing depth and the material to be routed, the useable cutter life is approx. 10,000 strokes. Every machine is shipped with a tool kit and set-up jig, which allows a router bit change in only minutes. Long-life, coated carbide router bits are also available.
