Tooling Spotlight: ProfilCut Q Insert Tooling System

In our tooling spotlight, we break down what you need to know about our most popular tools. This month’s MVP is the Profil Cut Q & ProfilCut Q Premium.

The Tool

ProfilCut Q, ProfilCut Q Premium, and ProfilCut Q PCD are the fastest and most precise dedicated profile insert systems available.  The ProfilCut family of tools is designed to optimize process efficiency through perfect cut quality, highest yield, and fastest production cycles.

What makes it better

  • Modular body design offers profile flexibility and economic operation
  • Precision knife locating and retention prevent knife movement due to centrifugal forces
  • All knife changes can be made at the spindle, without disassembly of cutterhead
  • Knife clamping elements are protected from dust & resin build-up for ease of maintenance
  • Longest service cycles with Marathon or TDC (diamond) coated, and RipTec knife options
  • Lightweight aluminum alloy body allows for better balance and, in turn, reduced vibration
  • Certified and approved to operate at knife velocities up to 120 meters per second (50% faster than any competing insert system)

When to use it

  • Five-piece cabinet doors (cope/stick/style/rail/edge detail)
  • Wood interior and exterior doors
  • Wood windows
  • Architectural millwork and mating profiles
  • Miter lock or v-folding applications
  • Finger and glue jointing applications
  • Profiling of non-ferrous metals and advanced materials

Suitable raw materials

  • Soft, hard and exotic wood species
  • Panel materials such as plywood, raw or laminated particleboard and MDF
  • Plastic, foam, resin and composite materials
  • Non-ferrous metals

The results

  • Perfect sand-free finish quality at high knife marks per inch
  • Prevention common defects such as grain plucking, tearing and fuzzing
  • Reduced scrap loss, rework, and post machine sanding and repairs
  • Exact profile dimensions are maintained with every knife change
  • Maximum tool life
  • Multiple profiles can be achieved through simple knife change or exchange of modular cutter disks
  • Reduced machine downtime, with no need for machine recalibration
  • Larger profiles and limited machine spindle wear
  • Lowest possible cost per unit of production
