  • BD-Smart - Drilling machine for 6-sided processing

    KOCH enjoys a worldwide reputation as a specialist for drilling and dowel insertion machines.

    With the completely revised BD-smart, a drilling machine for 6-sided processing of straight and rectangular workpieces, the manufacturer of machines and systems for woodworking industry and handicraft presents a machine, which is particularly of interest to manufacturers of drawers, frame components, profiled rails or furniture components.

    The workpieces are separated in a hopper feed and then led to the working stations. They are processed in clamped position and transported out of the machine and onto a workpiece return feed conveyor for one-man-operation or onto an outfeed for the integration into a production line.

    The machine is equipped for horizontal drillings into workpiece ends (both-sided) and into workpiece edges, as well as for vertical surface drillings from above and below. Thus, drilling operations from six sides are possible.

  • SPRINT-PTP-Professional

    With the Sprint-PTP-Professional, Koch offers a multi-purpose high performance drilling and dowel insertion machine, that has been optimized for Just-In-Time manufacturing.

    The machine is provided with 3 NC-axes in X, Y and Z and a working field of 1,600 mm with up to 4 possibilities to insert a workpiece, so that an alternating operation is possible for workpieces up to 800 mm length. The SPRINT-PTP-Professional is equipped with 2 horizontal drilling units and a vertical drilling station with 3 individually controlled drilling spindles for drilling into the workpiece surface. The range of performance is completed by a dowel tool (dowel dimensions: ø 6 and 8 mm, length 30 - 60 mm) as well as the Koch patented ELC glue control, which monitors that glue is injected into all dowel holes.

    In addition the SPRINT-PTP-Professional is equipped with a hardwood table support and side and center stops which can be lowered in 2 steps, so that workpieces which are already dowelled, can be inserted and aligned at the stops.

    The machine standard equipment also includes movable clamping cylinders. These special clamping cylinders for narrow parts enable longitudinal processing of rail surfaces.

  • Frame processing

    The efficient production of cabinet and furniture components requires a lot of know-how and machines which are specially adapted to the application. High flexibility and precision are necessary for all stages to achieve the desired added value.

    KOCH offers various concepts for the production of doors and their components. The range of solutions includes manual fed single-sided machines for low volume or Just-In-Time production in work cells to fully automated through-feed machines for larger batch production.

    The machines can be customized according to the customer's requirements and depending on the machine type, can be used for the production of shaker doors with dowel joint, miter doors with dowel joint or mortise and tenon construction and for the production of French Cut doors with dowel joints or mortise and tenon construction. The flexible machine portfolio allows small batch production or large-volume production, processing different profiles and materials.

    At IWF KOCH exhibits a machine for the production of frames: The SPRINT-FC is a machine for the processing of French Cut door components. It is equipped for the processing of stiles and rails.
