Production-duty, freestanding dovetail routing machine with solid cast aluminum table and large work surface at comfortable working height.  Equipped with four motors and gear heads to rout two keyways into two workpieces simultaneously.  Router bit spacing is operator adjustable from 1 1/4" (32mm) to 4" (100mm)

The Hoffmann PP2-TAB is a routing machine equipped with four carbide router bits, two on each side. This machine is designed to rout slots for two Dovetail Keys in two workpieces simultaneously. The router bits are installed in high-speed gear heads, which are connected to separate motors with toothed drive belts. The supplied 45 degree fence plate, which is guided in a keyway in the machine table, is used to accurately position the material on the table. The locations of the dovetail slots for the Hoffmann Dovetail Keys are adjusted by simply moving this fence plate and by setting the spacing between the key slots. 

A hand wheel on the side of the machine is used to set the desired distance, a locking lever locks the adjustment securely in place. The machine is equipped with a pneumatic foot pedal to start the routing process.

Upon pressing the switch, the routing sequence is initiated:

  • pneumatic clamp secures workpiece on machine table
  • router heads advance until the pre-set height position is reached
  • router heads return to base position
  • pneumatic clamp releases workpiece

Output is approx. 16 routing strokes per minute, which translates into 4 completely processed rectangular frames. These numbers include material handling, but obviously depend on routing depth, feed speed, material flow and operator performance as well. Flow control valves on the main pneumatic cylinder allow the operator to adjust the upward and downward feed rate independently, depending on the material being processed.

An aluminum table provides a large work surface. The steel cabinet has a 4" diameter dust collection port on its backside for dust free operation. The supplied router bits are 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. Diamond cutters are also available.
