Weinig Profimat 2310/13
It took 18 years to get a CNC router and now finally we are getting a Weinig molder (used) after over 25 years in the business!
Can some of you Weinig owners point me to some resources for learning to operate this wonderful new machine? I can noodle around Youtube, but are there some books, videos, or other resources?
We got an old refurb Weinig Rondamat 925 too and need to learn to use that as well.
Weinig has (or at least used to) a class for new owners of their machines. In North Carolina, 2-3 days, and they teach your operator enough to not do any serious damage. Beyond that, you need to spend some time with the machine and then get specific questions for things you have.
There are also some private techs that can come to your facility and train you tailored to your products.
I agree with David. Get some training. It will save you headaches and loss production.
Last year we bought a 4 head molder by Leadermac. Not having any familiarity, I had Paul Hobbs come and check the machine over, fettle it and teach me how to use it.
It was some of the best money I have ever spent.
Paul was with Weinig for 30 years and he goes around repairing molders. He's a great guy, works quickly and is available by phone for additional help.
He can be reached at:
You soon be up and running safely and with confidence.
I agree Read's opinion
thanks for the helpful responses
Training will be well worth the investment. Paul does a great job. The investment will pay for itself with lumber savings alone.
