KUPER ACR Cross feed veneer slicer

KUPER ACR Crossfeed Veneer Splicer

Perfection in motion.The powerful KUPER ACR: Modern design, innovative functions, perfect and highly efficient crossfeed splicing with glued joints. Processing of large veneer widths – with fast pull-in and short cycle times, also for wavy or narrow veneers.

Operating principle

The current concept combines traditional and modern workmanship in technology and design. The new KUPER ACR crossfeed veneer splicer offers increased speed and consistently high quality – thanks to the state-of-the-art intelligent control system, which ensures perfectly coordi­nated processes. The optimized design is the result of 80 years of expertise and experience in the design and manu­facture of veneer splicers. The individual processing steps are optimally coordinated. The infeed of the pre-glued veneers is done by transport belts. During the transport to the splicing zone the veneer will be measured and aligned. Depending on the strip width, the integrated first strip pull-in facility switches on automatically. This allows fast processing of narrow and wavy veneers. The linear moveable top pressure unit can be manually positioned and is easily accessible for maintenance purposes. The installed cross cutting knife cuts the veneer sheet to the set fixed dimensi­on. The cut strips are then automatically and precisely stacked. All production parameters are listed in the clearly laid out touch screen and are immediately available.
