What are drilling and dowelling machines used for?

Drilling and dowelling machines are used extensively in the furniture production industry. The processes of drilling and dowelling wood are crucial to the production of cupboards and drawers. After sizing and edge banding, a dowelling machine performs a range of individual steps, including drilling, dowel drilling, mortising and the insertion of dowels. Both horizontal and vertical dowelling machines are available. Which one a production facility uses depends on the nature of the products being manufactured and the flow of the production line.

  • Sizing, edge banding and processing the panels
  • Joining together different edge materials and the subsequent processing

How does a dowelling machine work?

Wood dowelling machinery creates rows of holes in wood. The exact configuration of these holes depends on the design of the final product. If you have ever constructed flat-pack home or office furniture, you will have used these holes during the assembly process. In order to drill holes with great accuracy, dowelling machinery (sometimes referred to as a wood drilling machine) utilises a stable machine stand, which is responsible for holding the motor and drill spindles in place. The slightest of movements during the dowelling process can result in holes being drilled a millimetre or two out of place.

Used machines for drilling and doweling

In order to change the distances between the holes drilled by a wood dowelling machine, the distance between the spindles must be changed. The process allows for a whole row of holes to be drilled in one go. The worktable moves the workpiece along the spindles using a feed. Wood dowelling can be made quicker and more accurate with the addition of dowel insertion machines. They allow drilled wooden panels to be loaded with fittings and dowels automatically. This cuts labour costs and reduces lead times.

What are the industrial applications of a wood drilling machine?

The advent of CNC wood dowelling machinery has completely transformed the furniture production industry. The process of wood drilling is now faster and more accurate than ever. This not only improves the efficiency of drilling operations, it keeps prices lower for consumers too.

A high-specification wood drilling machine often uses a digital screen to display measurements such as the distance between spindles and drilling depth. Changes to these measurements can be made in seconds, which means the same dowelling equipment can be used to manufacture many different types of furniture during the same day. An industrial doweller drills the holes needed for hinges, supports and connecting components — ensuring fast, economical and robust furniture assembly.

Column and pillar wood dowelling machines can undertake several steps of the manufacturing process these days, which means companies can reduce capital expenditure and running costs. Further savings can be made with the purchase of used wood drilling machines.

Where to buy a used wood dowelling machine

Dowelling machines that are capable of drilling holes into wood accurately and quickly are not cheap. For small and medium-sized businesses, they represent a major purchase that can eat into cashflow. But there are often used drilling and dowelling machines available for sale at Surplex.com — for a fraction of the price paid for new woodworking machinery.

Whether for purchase directly from the website or via one of our industrial auctions, you will regularly find drilling equipment from the World’s most respected manufacturers, including GANNER, AYEN, HETTICH, BIESSE, MORBIDELLI, GECOM, CAB, LIMATEC, SWM, GISSTEC, HOFMANN, WEEKE BOHRSYSTEME, HANS KOCH, KARL AYEN MASCHINENFABRIK and URBAN.
