Cross Joint Milling Machine KSF-2E

Stegherr Kreuzsprossenfräse KSF-2E


The KSF-2E is a special purpose milling machine with fully automatic positioning control for the economic production of cross joints. The machine can now be provided with up to eight work stations. The machine can mill wood, aluminum and PVC.



Besides the classic cross joint in excellent quality the machine can perform one or several of the following operations (optionals):

  • End scribing of the glazing bars
  • Cutting to length of glazing bars at different angles
  • Cutting to length of glazing beads at different angles
  • Cutting to length of frame profiles
  • Drilling of fastening holes for fixing the glazing beads to the frame

The different aggregates can be mounted vertically or horizontally, thus offering a wide range of application.


Perfect cross joints

The profiled bars are cut by a top and a bottom cutting unit while at the same time a third unit finishes the flat portion in between. The additional notching unit (the fourth milling unit, mounted on the front side of the machine) ensures that any profiled bar can milled tear free on the top (view) side of the joint.


Tear free coping

The ends of the glazing bars can be profiled by means of two high speed counter rotating tools. The result are perfect, tear free counter profiled bars.


Cutting to length

The glazing beads, glazing bars or frame profiles can be cut to length on a saw unit with adjustable cutting angles, mounted for cutting horizontally or vertically, depending on the application.


Drilling

The additional drilling unit can drill the fastening holes for fixing the glazing beads to the frame.


Fully automatic operation

The workpieces are positioned automatically over a servo controlled axis. For a fully automatic operation the machine can be supplied with an infeed magazine.


Operator friendly machine control

The machine control ensures easy operating of the cross joint milling machine KSF-2E, both in the single piece production and online.

The various integrated calculation programs and graphics modules make operating the machine easy. The workpieces are marked with the help of a label, inkjet, or laser printer which can be connected to the cross joint milling machine KSF-2E.


Aluminum bars

The machine can mill workpieces of wood, aluminum, PVC and MDF.


The KSF-2E machine can also be equipped with a milling unit for milling the workpiece ends for the connection elements which fasten the glazing bars to the frame.
