The new Profimat 50: moulding your future

The Profimat 50 can be equipped with an intelligent control package that’s ideal for frequently repeating products. A 10.1in touch screen display offers clear user guidance to set profiles at the touch of a button. Motorised CNC controlled axes provide automatic setting for planed-all-round production. As standard, the machine is controlled manually

The Profimat 50 from Weinig has arrived! Part of the all-new Profimat series, the Profimat 50 has been designed to offer small- to medium-sized manufacturers maximum performance and flexible production when planing and profiling all types of timber. With its robust cast-iron machine base and precision-machined spindles, the Profimat 50 ensures a high surface quality on all workpieces, while sitting comfortably within an 8.8sq.m footprint. The robust moulder, which is fully customisable and offered with optional tool packages, has been designed to work up to 260mm wide – the width of a stair tread and, in many cases, a window board. The new model can be specified with five or six heads and powerful motors up to 15kW. The five-spindle model has a frequency controlled feed speed of 30m/min and a spindle speed of 7,000rpm as standard with 8,000rpm available if 15-33% more production is required without any reduction in surface quality. The moulder also comes equipped with a manually adjustable 6mm lateral guiding fence, adjustable table plates and an easily adjustable fence after the right spindle. A driven table roller in the outfeed adds to the quality of the finished product.


The Profimat has a 230mm working width, or an optional working width of 260mm

High energy efficiency
The Profimat 50 can also be equipped with an optional groove guide for short or difficult workpieces; a 2.5m straightening table and an optional 1.2m infeed table with three-roller infeed to process large dimensions or wet timber effectively. For further ease of use, the new model comes with Digi-Set and machine read-outs as standard. An optional control package with Memory Plus and electronic digital read-outs is available, offering CNC-controlled axes for the automatic adjustment of the width and thickness for planed-all-round production. While offering the user a wealth of innovative technology at their fingertips, the Profimat 50’s electrics have been designed to offer high energy efficiency without limiting performance. The use of frequency converters to start and stop all spindle drives reduces power peaks during start-up and switch-off while reducing the thermal stress of the motors when braking the spindles. It also means less energy is used when operating at partial load, making this model highly energy efficient.


The design of the Profimat ensures short setup times, high user safety and ergonomic operation via simple controls

Speed, reliability & quality
The Profimat 50 has been engineered with low-maintenance components for exceptional reliability, quick adjustments and low running costs. It features a feed system with separate drives for quick and easy maintenance and a fully detachable dust extraction hood that not only leaves the left spindle easily accessible for tool-changing, but also helps to reduce extraction energy consumption by 20% when compared with a 140mm hose on the same model.


With its robust cast-iron machine base and spindles, the Profimat 50 ensures a high surface quality finish from a compact machine footprint

Malcolm Cuthbertson, Managing Director of Weinig UK, says: “The Profimat 50 is a development of Weinig’s Profimat series. Following on from the launch of the compact Profimat 30 last year, this model offers small- to medium-sized manufacturers flexible machining and precise, fast planing and profiling. Users can expect to find a wealth of technology at their fingertips that, until now, has only been available on larger moulders in the Weinig portfolio. Designed and manufactured entirely by Weinig’s in-house engineers, the Profimat 50 offers the speed, reliability and quality needed in today’s market. This, partnered with a price tag of just £42k, offers manufacturers an affordable way to boost performance, precision and safety, while opening the door to a diverse range of revenue streams.”
