Production-duty, freestanding dovetail routing machine with solid cast aluminum table and large work surface at comfortable working height.  Equipped with two heavy-duty 1,700 watt router motor and PLC controls, to process two workpieces simultaneously.

Operator selectable horizontal and vertical routing strokes.

The Hoffmann PP2-VH dovetail routing machine is used for both vertical and horizontal routing operations. The machine is equipped with two high-speed router motors to rout one dovetail slot in each of two workpieces   simultaneously.

Vertical machining:

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 location of the dovetail slots for the Hoffmann keys is adjusted by simply moving this fence plate.

The machine is equipped with a electronic foot pedal. Upon pressing of the foot pedal, the routing sequence is initiated:

  • pneumatic clamps secures workpieces on machine table
  • router heads advance until the pre-set height position is reached
  • router heads return to base position
  • pneumatic clamps release workpieces

The routing height is easily adjusted between 0 - 5".

Horizontal Machining:

Both router heads are moved above the machine table by simply operating a switch on the front of the machine. The distance between the router bits and the table depends on the thickness of the material being processed and can be adjusted between 0 - 5".

Upon making the necessary adjustments, the routing sequence is again started by depressing the electronic foot switch.

  • pneumatic clamps secures work pieces on machine table
  • router heads advance either from the outside of the machine toward the middle or from the center of the machine toward the outside, until the pre-set return position is reached
  • router heads return to base position
  • pneumatic clamps releases work piece

The horizontal routing stroke is easily adjusted between 0 - 6"

Flow control valves on all pneumatic cylinders allow the operator to adjust the vertical and horizontal feed rates independently, depending on the material being processed. A heavy-duty anodized steel table provides a large work surface. The steel cabinet has a 4" diameter dust collection port on its backside for dust free operation. All movements are controlled with electronic proximity switches as well as sensor on the pneumatic cylinders. An industrial quality PLC is located in a dust-proof electrical cabinet and controls all major machine functions. 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. 8,000 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.
