TechSoft Minimax C30E Genius

TechSoft Minimax C30E Genius
The C30E is likely to provide sufficient capacity and cutting speed for most schools. Although too small to break down full 1200 x 2400mm sheets into quarters, the included squaring frame will make it easy to prepare accurate batches of large panel components. Cutting depth and width against the rip fence will almost certainly exceed the capacity needed for most student projects. The C30E shares the same planing width as the CU300E model.

One Machine - Sawing, Planing & Thicknessing
Our Minimax Combination machines can provide a cost and space saving way to fully equip a preparation area. Each machine comprises a circular saw bench and a planer-thicknesser arranged back-to-back in one integrated unit. The work table is shared by both functions so, despite their compact size, combination machines retain their full capacity for either sawing or planing. The saw and planer-thicknesser are each powered by separate motors so swapping between operations is very straightforward. Needless to say, only one function at a time can be used. Mechanical and electrical control systems are built into these machines to ensure that only the function being used is ‘live’ and remaining systems are in a safe state.

Combination Machines in Schools and Colleges
For less than the cost of two separate machines, schools can have the precise sawing and planing capability they need for all basic stock preparation. In terms of space saving, it is best to think of combination machines as offering alternatives rather than substitutes. Separate machines need a safe working area that allows for in-feed and out-feed at each end of the machine and enough space at the side for the operator. They also need sufficient space between them to make sure one machine is not hindered by the other. Combination machines have a smaller ‘footprint’ but need space on all four sides. This means they need central placement in a preparation area. Where this is possible, you have the added bonus of more space to position larger boards and the ability to cross-cut longer stock on the saw table. In this situation, a combination machine will always be a space saving and convenient option.

Full Machining Capability
Despite their compact size, our Minimax combination machines do not compromise on quality or performance. The main saw table features a rise and fall tilting arbor for angled cuts with convenient handwheel adjustment and locking. A welded steel main chassis and ribbed cast iron work tables ensure accuracy and vibration free operation. Deep, positive locking fences for cross cutting and ripping feature hold-down clamps and stops for repeat working. A precision engineered sliding table runs close to the blade for accurate ripping. The smaller C30E machine includes a squaring frame to allow repeat sawing of panel components to accurate dimensions including angles and bevel cuts. The planer features a three-knife Tersa © cutter block for clean surfaces and easy blade changing. The efficient feed system allows rapid stock removal up to the maximum table width. Planing datum faces is easy to achieve - the robust saw fence provides the necessary datum and an easily adjusted bridge guard will ensure safe operation. For convenience, the main surfacing table opens toward the operator for thicknessing.
