SCM launches new 'Stefani X' industrial edgebander

SCM's new industrial edgebander – 'Stefani X' – has been designed to offer top-quality machining on any kind of panel and material in order to fully meet the needs of a connected, integrated digital factory. This marks another new high-tech entry from SCM, which aims to satisfy the latest furniture and design trends in terms of flexible and 4.0 production.

This new industrial edgebander has everything it takes to win over the market. Every detail has been designed to offer an extremely innovative solution, in line with the industry's more complex demands: from the machine's structure to the digital and electronic control systems; from the machining units with power-assisted movement to the latest gluing devices, for an even faster, more efficient glue change.

The result is a highly configurable, customised edgebander, designed to reliably work several shifts while providing top-quality machining, both in the stand-alone version and integrated cells or lines.

One other important advantage is its ability to achieve maximum quality standards easily and without interruption, even on the most delicate, state-of-the-art materials, thanks to SCM's new electronic touch systems.

Furthermore, in an attempt to meet the increasingly more widespread demands for flexible, connected and integrated production, 'Stefani X' offers an exclusive digital control system, so it can operate in perfect synergy with other technologies and IT systems as well as management MES used in the factory.

The end of compromised productivity
SCM's new industrial edgebander can machine panels at a speed of up to 30m/min during several shifts per day. All this is possible thanks to top-of-the-range units and a new, highly rigid mechanical structure. It also features new dynamic units, custom-designed to further increase performance, including additional high-end functions if requested.

Highly flexible even when changing the glue
Another significant new feature on this machine is the gluing unit, which, thanks to the unique 'glue switch' solution, allows for a just in time change of colour and glue type, thus achieving even more flexible, efficient production. The 'secret' behind this is two simultaneously functioning glue tanks, which during machining, can be interchanged using the type and colour of glue requested by the work program. The glue tank can also be replaced or maintenance work carried out without having to stop the edgebander.

Top quality even on the most delicate edges
The new 'Stefani X' offers top-quality gluing regardless of edge type. The intensity of the first pressure roller can be automatically adjusted using the edgebander's control system. Furthermore, the edge can be replaced without any distance limit between the panels thanks to the new automatic edge change device with either two and six rolls, together with a roller change system allowing for a reduced interspacing of 350mm.


New range of high-end electronic units
The new electronic units on 'Stefani X' are designed to meet two key market objectives: 1) Increased ease of use even on more complex machinings and delicate, trending materials, thanks to an automatic, flexible set-up; 2) Repeatability, quality and accurate production processes, thanks to the electronic touch.

1. Y-SE 1000 Servo and Y-SE 1200 Servo end trimming units – for constant precision when cutting, irrespective of the amount and type of panels to be machined. This optimises machining work even on the most delicate panels; control adjustments are automatic and machining errors can be corrected on the spot.

2. Round 2 Servo rounding unit – this ensures top quality machining on any profile and optimises the processes, even when three different edge thicknesses are required.

3. RC-E Multileaf glue scraping unit – ideal for machining panels with film and softforming, thanks to an automatic tool adjustment which allows for endless film thicknesses.


"This new edgebanding machine is a further advancement to accompany and support furniture and design businesses, allowing them to optimise production processes together with SCM's 70 years of technological innovation and know-how in the edgebanding sector," says SCM's Edgebanding Business Manager, Fabio Cernoia. The new 'Stefani X' is proof that an edgebander needs to be much more than just a machine. In fact, it needs to be an all-round technological project, which is highly configurable and versatile, where the quantitative and qualitative composition of the units make a difference to the panel machining process.
