Explanation of the term "Dowel Drilling Machine"

A dowel drilling machine is a machine that is used for the processing of wood, particularly the manufacturing of furniture. Dowels are identified as the round, threadless wooded pegs use for wood constructions. These are glued and bound together at a right angle to the panel of the body of the wood furniture piece. This ensures stability of self-assembly furniture such as cupboards and shelves.

  • Used for the processing of wood for the furniture industry
  • Mass production of self-assembly furniture
  • Further increased efficiency through additional fittings with automatic feeding system

Areas of application of a dowel drilling machine

Dowel drilling machines are used to drill dimensionally accurate holes in wood, plastic or compound materials, for mass production. This machine is most commonly used for self-assembly furniture because the drilled holes have to be regular in diameter and have equal distance from one another. Even a small amount of deviation could lead to strain or reduced stability in the furniture. Dowel drilling machines are especially efficient when working with large numbers of workpieces. Using these machines, large batches of orders can be processed at once. Therefore, they are particularly popular with contract manufacturers.

Accessories for dowel drilling machines

Dowel drilling machines can achieve increased efficiency through additional fittings with automatic feeding systems. A gradually moving conveyor system with stops could be sufficient for this process. Ideally, it is useful to have feedback systems or a loading robot. These guarantee accuracy levels of up to a millimetre of the furniture panels. Dowel drilling machines are cutting equipment, and therefore it is useful to have a powerful extraction system to reduce the amount of dirt. The benefits of an extraction system can be seen through clean air, as a result of a significantly cleaner working environment, failure-free sensors and minimal dust disturbance.

Working with a dowel drilling machine

Generally, dowel drilling machines can also be manually loaded and unloaded. However, due to dust and noise, this is not recommended and increases the likelihood of mistakes. Chipboards are very sensitive products that can already become unsuitable for the market if there is a little bit of damage.

Therefore, automatic loading of a dowel drilling machine is recommended. As a result of the high amount of dust and chippings, dowel drilling machines require a lot of cleaning. Therefore, dowel drilling machines have to be disassembled and cleaned with compressed air. Without the correct maintenance, the dust resulting from wood chipboards and binding agents can lead to build-up, which in turn could create damages. This can be avoided through scrupulous and regular cleaning.

Suppliers of dowel drilling machines

Several companies have specialised in the manufacturing of dowel drilling machines. Some of the most recommended suppliers include GANNER, JONSDORF, KOCH and SCHEER
