Definition: Moulders

Moulders can level, join, plane and profile in only one operation. This is why they are much more multifunctional than a four sided planing machine, in which profiling is just limited and only possible with an additional effort. Moulders are way different. They let adjust at least one milling spindle for more than 10 mm around the whole rotation area. For example, this provides a high profile accuracy and great surface quality when window manufacturing. Choose your favorite moulder for a top price! For industry and crafts.

What is a moulder?

A moulder is a cutting machine used in the woodworking industry. More precisely, a wood moulder is a device used to shape wooden workpieces through the use of profiled cutting knives and blades. With moulders, beams, boards and panels are precisely cut into the desired dimensions. That being said, a moulder can be regarded as a special model of a wood planer. A planer moulder is used for turning rough-cut wood into a flat planed surface.

Working with planer moulders

  • Cutting machine used in woodworking
  • Cut beams, boards and panels to exact dimensions
  • Efficient in mass-production

Being generally considered as a machine for routine work, a moulder operates most efficiently when a series of wooden pieces are all cut to the same dimensions, which can be adjusted either manually or electronically. The operation of a moulder is indiscriminate. The central element of a wood moulder is a rotating planer. The wood is guided along the planer and cut, while the desired precision is achieved by turning the wood piece. A wood moulder usually contains at least one horizontal cutter head, as well as several side cutter heads.

Moulder accessories

As a woodworking machine that produces shavings, a shaving and sawdust vacuum is a necessary accessory to a moulder. This reduces the cleaning maintenance considerably and minimises the work interruptions. An ideal tool for cleaning a planer/moulder is a compressed air gun, which enables the removal of shavings from hard-to-reach areas. With woodworking machinery such as moulders, wearing of the tool becomes noticeable by certain changes in the sound during operation. Callipers should, therefore, be at the ready to double-check the dimensions of the machined product.

Moulder safety equipment

In order to provide safe working conditions, the safety equipment constitutes a large portion of a moulder. The workpiece is moved along a secure and precisely adjustable guide, which prevents kickback and other uncontrolled movements. In addition, the rotating planer of a moulder is completely enclosed by a protective housing, which keeps the flying shavings securely out of the surroundings. Throughout machining, the workpiece remains secured by the guide rail. With a correctly adjusted planer moulder, the consistently safe operation is possible. The rotating planer is a dangerous element, and as such is housed deep within the machine. However, on a correctly designed moulding planer, an accidental contact with the planer is impossible. High quality wood moulders have safety switches that stop the planer’s operation as soon as the protective hood is lifted.

Maintenance of moulders

Opening the housing is regularly necessary because woodworking machinery requires frequent cleaning. When all safety measures are observed, this can be done even by unskilled workers. Contrary to that, the planing blade should only be changed by trained workers. It is important that the disassembly and reassembly of a moulding planer be carried out correctly. If this task needs to be carried out by a trained labourer, repeated practice with the oversight of an educated machinist is advisable. Even a used moulder should include complete documentation provided by the manufacturer.

Where to buy quality used moulders?

Several manufacturers have focused on the production of moulders, the most recommendable brands being WEINIG, MARTIN, HOLYTEK, SCM and GUBISCH. When looking for a reliable used moulder made by some of the most renowned manufacturers, you should consider visiting an occasional industrial auction organized here at Surplex.com, where a wide range of used industrial machines is available at reasonable prices. You can also check our regular sales of used machinery or subscribe to our newsletter to be among the first to be informed about new sales.
