VITAP celebrating 61 Years, with a revolutionary new concept of CNC machining for furniture manufacture.

Vitap Costruzioni Meccaniche Spa., which boasts 61 years’ experience in the construction of boring machines for the woodworking industry, making it without doubt one of the world’s leading companies, presented last May at the Ligna International Trade Show with a revolutionary new concept of CNC machining for furniture manufacture: the Point high-speed boring and routing machine.

With a completely new design and production technology in terms of both speed and precision, the Point has an impressive range of standard features, including the patented transport system that does not damage even the most delicate pieces and makes it possible to handle the pieces continuously (without restarting), the high-speed CNC machine and the laser photo cell for identifying the origin of the panel and its real length.
Equipped with 8 vertical spindles, 2+2 horizontal spindles on axis X and 1+1 horizontal spindles on axis Y that work together with the blade so that the piece can also be finished with the grooving units. For superior production demands, an optional router unit can be provide.
The Point boring machine can carry out all types of workmanship on all 5 sides of a panel, i.e. the surface and the 4 edges.
The sizes of the pieces that can be dealt with are impressive: X unlimited, Y 920 mm and Z 50 mm, which, with the brand-new TPA interface, allows the operator to set the machine up on-site or remotely; programs are imported using DXF language, making them compatible with most furniture design software. Point offers a fresh market appeal and a particularly good price/performance ratio. It is the ideal machine for producing both standard and special pieces, and for the complete treatment of sides, tops, drawers, cabinet doors, drawer fronts and kitchen corners.
Another brand-new product is Point3, with an automated loading/unloading system: exceptionally fast and accurate, it offers the possibility to produce both standard and special pieces. Point3, complete with loading/unloading system, is extremely user-friendly, and a single operator can manage three Point3 workstations independently at the same time. Ideal for both small and large companies.
