Stability and operating smoothness - the Hammer spindle moulder unit

High precision with standard moulding work or use of heavy tools - The Hammer spindle moulder unit guarantees extreme smoothness and precision. The spindle diameter is 30 mm. The ergonomically laid out operating elements and the smooth tool change convinces with every application, day after day. Four well spaced, selectable speeds, 3,000/6,000/8,000 and 10,000 rpm, cover the optimum speeds of various different spindle tool diameters with ease. An important detail is standard with Hammer: the forward and reverse run of the spindle for your safety when moulding.

Stable-compact-precise, the Hammer saw aggregate

The Hammer saw aggregate impresses with smoothness, precision and extreme user friendliness. The large cutting height of 103 mm leaves nothing to be desired. Saw blades with up to 315 mm diameter can be lowered completely below the level of the saw table. The saw blade is simple to access and can be changed with ease.

Saw blade tilt 90°–45°

The blade can be tilted to any position between 90° and 45° and guarantees precise mitre cuts. End stops at the 90° and 45° position ensure the exact positioning of the settings, a large dimensioned scale makes the exact setting and reading of the value easy.

Scoring unit for laminated workpieces

The scoring unit ensures chip free cuts in laminated workpieces. The cutting width of the two part scoring blade can be adjusted accurately to the tooth width of the main saw blade using a ring set. The drive of the scoring blade is done mechanically, with it rotating in the opposite direction to the main saw blade.

Grooving, slot and tenoning with the saw

Every hammer panel saw can be equipped with a prepartion for the use of specialised dado tooling. The dado tool can be fitted to the saw arbour and makes it possible to make various width grooves, tenons and slots of between 8 and 19.5 mm in width.

The aluminium sliding table, the heart of every panel saw

The aluminium sliding table gives the precision from the first cut. Guaranteed Hammer stability and precision: the strong ribbed, milled and anodised aluminium hollow-chamber profile of the sliding table in combination with the high quality guiding system ensures maximum accuracy and precision!

Crosscut fence for precise mitre cuts

Adjustable to any position between +45° and –45°, the crosscut fence ensures precise angled and mitre cuts. A scale integrated into the aluminium sliding table makes it easy to set precisely. The end stop for the 90° position guarantees absolute precision with repeat settings. The scale on the 900 mm long aluminium crosscut fence is angled towards the operator and makes it easy to comfortably read the exact setting. In combination with the crosscut stop with integrated magnifying glass, highly precise settings and as such absolutely exact results are guaranteed.

Strong motors - Optimal power transmission

The power transmission of the motor power to the saw arbour or moulder spindle is achieved using large dimensioned Poly-V belts and counter surface. The surface area which is increased through the V shape of the drive belt on the pulley increases the grip and ensures an almost perfect transmission of power from the motor to the saw arbour and moulder spindle.

The Hammer saw/spindle table, made from solid cast iron

Totally vibration-free and therefore absolutely precise when sawing and moulding - the saw/spindle table made from solid cast iron has strong ribbing and is completely torsion-resistant. The table opening of 180 mm diameter makes it possible to use large diameter tools below the table surface level.

Minimal space requirement - mobile in every workshop

Hammer woodworking machines are an absolute spatial wonder. The efficient machine design of a Hammer means that space can be found in even the smallest of workshops. As an option a rolling carriage can be fitted to every Hammer, offering mobility and freeing up additional space.

MF spindle system

Without losing any settings, just a few turns of your hand allows you to swap spindles of varying diameters.

MULTI fine adjustment system

Professional equipment: “240” spindle fence for max. tooling diameter 9” (230 mm), MULTI fine adjustment for shaper fence “240”

Rip fence on the saw table

The cutting width on the saw table can be adjusted to any position between 0 and 700 mm. The scale that is integrated into the rail ensures the exact setting of the aluminium rip fence to the position required. The aluminium fence can be positioned in any position along the cutting direction - when processing long workpieces you get a better feed of the workpiece and ensure a high processing precision. When carrying out mitre cuts with a tilted saw blade it is possible to move the fence from the horizontal to the flat position. The narrow fence edge then enables the rip cutting of very thin workpieces. An even more precise, tenth of a millimetre accurate setting of the aluminium rip fence can be achieved with the optional Hammer fine adjustment.

Shaper spindle

The standard: Spindle Shaper-dia. 1¼” (30 mm) for standard shaper tooling.

As an option: Adapt the table size to the workpiece dimension

Processing long and heavy workpieces without assistance - no problem with a Hammer! The Hammer table extension system has proven itself thousandfold, the world over. In just a few steps and without tools the table extensions can be mounted to every Hammer machine. The surface can be extended by 400 or 800 mm on each side of the working table. Which means that it is possible to increase your table length by up to 1600 mm!

Safety bar guides

The safety bar guides, great for “end-grain” work (optional).

Stable-compact-precise, the Hammer saw aggregate

The Hammer saw aggregate impresses with smoothness, precision and extreme user friendliness. The large cutting height of 103 mm leaves nothing to be desired. Saw blades with up to 315 mm diameter can be lowered completely below the level of the saw table. The saw blade is simple to access and can be changed with ease.

Spindle fence: simple handling, maximum safety and precision

The Hammer spindle fence is suitable for tools with a diameter up to 220 mm. Both of the anodised aluminium fences can be easily set to the spindle moulder tool diameter being used. The adjustment for the depth of cut when moulding can be made on the outfeed fence plate with a range of –5 mm und +25 mm. The extraction connection diameter for the chip extraction on the fence is 120 mm. As an option, safety bars can be fitted into the aluminium fence for a continuous surface support and offer even more safety when moulding.
