FMD – Haunch Machine

The FMD is a PLC driven machining center used for producing high quality haunch joints, which are used in cabinet door applications. The haunch blades cut each side of the haunch in one single pass. The FMD can haunch and mortise on both stiles and rails. The router spindles cut mortises on the rail and stile ends of the work piece. The FMD will produce an estimated 200-250 doors per shift.
This machine is patent pending.
