Cantek EM-12 End Matcher

Continuous through feed end matcher producing tongue and groove on flooring & paneling.

The Cantek EM12 End Matcher is specially designed for machining tongue and groove (with or without bevels) on hardwood flooring and wall/ceiling paneling up to 12” wide. Its compact design with continuous through feed system allows for maximum output in a small space.  Equipped with a user-friendly touch screen interface allow for simple operation with excellent performance and error diagnostics.  The dual counter-rotating cutterheads produce both the tongue and groove simultaneously ensuring a perfect match.  The anti-tear-out blocks and counter rotation of the heads ensure optimum cut quality without chipping or blowout.  The insert style segmented cutterheads can be adjusted according to your desired tongue / groove thickness and can perform a micro-bevel or not. The variable speed infeed conveyor, variable feed speed, and variable cross-cutting speed allow the operator full control according to the type and size of material being run.  The innovative clamps allow for simultaneous top and side clamping to ensure pieces are perfectly square for consistent end matching results.

For added productivity the EM12 End Matcher can be installed in-line with our CFS100 Automatic Defect Cutoff Chop Saw to perform defecting and end matching in a single line.  This greatly reduces the handling while increasing output with defect free flooring or paneling.
