Powermax All-in-one Defect Saw & End Matcher

Machine Information


The Powermax (Endmatcher) cuts out defects, cuts to length &/or optimizes and endmatches wooden boards for several purposes. Varying from softwood wall and ceiling panelling to hardwood floorboards.

  • The latest development in wooden floor machinery
  • High capacity with advanced servo drive & control technique
  • Exceptional in its unique combination of production methods
  • 4 Pneumatic cylinders with valves for best possible control and efficiency.
  • 1 Luminescence-sensor camera for defect crayon mark identification – reading defects on the top face of the input coards
  • 1 Photo electric sensor for detecting the ends, 1 inductive sensor for detecting the position of the carriage. Detecting positions of the carriage and sawblades with servo feedback
  • Inductive-sensors – for detecting the position of the carriage and the others for detecting the positions of the saw blades
  • Powered belt conveyor with drive motor for waste cutoff pieces.
  • Machine is produced to CE Safety and Electrical Standards to UL/CSA Standards
  • Lenze PLC control

 Some examples of approx. expected Lineal Production Rates

  • Throughput based on End Matching only – No Defecting

Based on 6″(150mm) wide Material Input

  • 5 Meter 196″ Input Length = 20 pieces/min. = approx. 100m/min (325fpm) throughput
  • 3 Meter 118″ Input Length = 24 pieces/min. = approx. 72m/min (234fpm) throughput

Based on 12″(300mm) wide Material Input

  • 5 Meter 196″ Input Length = 16 pieces/min. = approx. 80m/min (260fpm) throughput
  • 3 Meter 118″ Input Length = 20 pieces/min. = approx. 60m/min (195fpm) throughput

Random lengths, Fixed lengths, Optimizing at 100mm (4″) lengths


Available Options

To a Minimum Output Length of 10”(250mm)

  • The Shorter(than 15.9”(400mm) Output Lengths will slightly decline the overall throughput/output potential when running this short output

Auto Mechanical Stop (might be considered for Herringbone &/or Parquet Flooring Production) includes an adjustable for length Auto Mechanical/Magnetic Stop for 17.9” (450mm) up to 60”(1500mm) – (Accuracy +/- .004”(+/-.1mm)

Option to above Stop

  • Stop Length 17.9” (450mm) to 98”(8.2’) Max. is available but will require a powered Rollcase type outfeed from the Powermax (Accuracy +/- .004”(+/-.1mm)
  • Above Mechanical Stop System can be set up for sub program with 2 different fixed lengths to be run at the same time if desired
  • Note – You can view this Stop System in 1 of the available Videos.
