This machine features modern joinery software for windows and doors, from leading brands like Klaes and Joinerysoft.

New innovations - Find YOUR solution with The CRAFTER CNC machining centre

Production is an important factor that all businesses need to consider if they want to maximise sales. The CRAFTER makes this goal achievable as the machine can be used in small workshops to speed up production.

Move your workshop to the next level. The CRAFTER is supported by the WinCreator software that allows for faster windows production, producing 30-40 single sashes, 15-20 one-leaf casements or 8-12 complete sliding sash windows each day. 

The UK SERIES of this woodworking machine has been developed by IWMachines for the manufacturing of British windows. With the CRAFTER, your business can produce a large quantity of high-quality windows made from wood, like casements and sliding sashes. Its milling unit also enables you to create the horns for your windows, ranging from sashes or trench slots for pulley stiles that it needs. 

The sliding box operation

  • tenoning and profiling of box parts intended for balance springs
  • notching of cill part for interior lining bead
  • profiling of divided cill in part
  • trenching of slot in cill and head for pulley stiles
  • cutting operation for moulded pulley stiles,
    lining beads, cill extension

 

NB. Pulley stiles, lining beads, head and cill extension
are moulded off-line

The sliding sash operation:   

  • milling of horns in different moulds
  • open tenons and slots
  • profiling of traditional bevelled meeting rails
  • adapting of meeting rail slots to parting bead
  • outside profiling and grooving for cord, gasket or balance springs

 

NB. Mortising of sash stiles is made off-line 


Casement operation:

  • tenoning and profiling of frames
  • tenoning and profiling of casements with shorted rails tenon for stormproofing
  • recovering of glazing beads and sticking bars from frame rebate 
  • tenoning and profiling of casements with full machining of components without stormproofing (flush, stormproof & high performance windows)

 

 

 

 

 

 


Configuration of the machine:

 


Antisplitting spindle jumping on the corner has been minimised with the original Soukup machine. During the double cycling of tenoning, the CRAFTER makes sure that any cross wood parts have been suitably milled out. As a result, this woodworking system means that milling of small sashes is easier than ever, where stability had once been an issue.
