Oliver Machinery recently introduced a CNC dovetail machine, model 6600, to produce a range of woodworking joints. Simple to use, it has the versatility to machine dovetail, box, mortise-and-tenon joints and more.
The operator just needs to enter the dimensions of the material, bit size and number of joints on the machine’s touchscreen control, according to product manager Luis Cano.
“It’s a fairly straightforward machine, easy to learn. It is an entirely new model machine we presented at IWF 2014. This would be for your cabinetmaker, particularly for a medium-sized or larger shop that is production-oriented,” Cano says.
A 2-hp motor drives the machine’s spindle assembly, capable of delivering up to 18,000 RPMs. It features an 18mm spindle and 36” x 34” table. It also offers auto or manual work modes.
The machine’s overall dimensions are 51” x 42” x 43”.
“It’s a pretty heavy-duty machine with a gross weight of 1,213 pounds. It’s on castors so it can be mobile as well as stationary,” Cano says.
The machine sells for $35,000.
