Abstract: The invention relates to apparatus for the transverse and/or longitudinal machining of wooden workpieces, comprising a workpiece carriage for mounting a workpiece or a plurality of workpieces thereon and adapted to be displaced in the direction of the X-axis of a spatial X-Y-Z coordinate system along at least one transverse machining tool itself adapted to be displaced in the Y- and/or Z-axis for the machining operation. The object of the invention is to provide an apparatus of the above indicated type, which is of simple construction and by means of which the transverse machining of a workpiece can be carried out in a single mounting position of the workpiece and at a single machine location. In order to attain this object, the invention provides that the workpiece carriage comprises a mounting table adapted to be tilted about an axis parallel to the X-axis.
Abstract: Apparatus for copy-machining a workpiece includes a disk miller assembly acting as a shaping tool and a grinding belt extending between return pulleys and acting as a surface finishing tool assembly, both of the tool assemblies are mounted on pivot arms for pivotal displacement about pivot axes, carried on a common feed device and adapted to be advanced along a workpiece mounted in a clamping device under the control of a scanner scanning a model, the disk miller rotating about an axis extending parallel to the rotary axis of the workpiece as defined by the clamping device. The grinding belt is driven to rotate adjacent the disk miller in a plane extending parallel to the plane of rotation thereof. The pivot axis of the pivot arm associated with the grinding belt assembly is axially aligned with the pivot axis of the disk miller assembly.
