A new generation of wood lathes
The evolution of technology has led the project leader to devise new possibilities for revolutionising woodworking. In its search for a technical partner to bring its creations to fruition, R&D Technology offered its support to Innovative Technology Projects. The experience and ingenuity of our technical teams have ensured the feasibility of the project and the development of innovative technical solutions.
A patented machining process
TOBI, the innovative wood lathe, has 6 digitally-controlled axes (a process unique in the world) allowing it to accommodate 14-metre long beams, while giving free rein to your imagination to carve the wood as you wish. Machining complex pieces has never been easier or faster!
The innovative multi-directional epicyclic milling process has been patented and can be used for all types of wood. The machine can process a variety of cross-sectional shapes as standard: rectangular, oblong, round, chamfered square, fluted, concave, etc. Using combined machining, it can also produce stylised profiles: spindle, helix, asymmetry, twist, etc. in various sizes, working from drawings or CAD files.
In addition to its unparalleled productivity, this new lathe opens up a field of possibilities in areas such as architecture, wood construction, furniture, art, etc.”
