ALPHA
ROTARY LATHE
[ALLF series]

ALLF.jpg (11903 byte)

The ALPHA rotary veneer lathe model ALLF has been developed specifically for peeling small diameter logs into thin face veneer for the production of decorative panels.

Unlike other Meinan lathe models that have a circumferential drive system, also known as "Gangi", the ALLF lathe uses a special roller bar for driving the block.

This feature permits peeling of veneer without leaving incision marks on the surface, and it also reduces lathe checks on the backside of the veneer. The result is veneer of superior quality and precisely controlled thickness.

The ALLF model is therefore best suited for processing small diameter logs such as they come from plantations or as by-products from forest thinning operations and would normally be classified as chipping material. A substantial increase in value from a low cost raw material could therefore be realized.

NEW ARIST LATHE
VENEER PEELING SYSTEM
[B-NAL series]

Meinan's Arist-Lathe model B-NAL has been developed to peel veneer from logs that are difficult or impossible to peel on a conventional lathe. For example, extremely hard species and those that usually require conditioning. This lathe is designed to produce high quality veneer with close tolerances from inferior logs that would normally be considered unsuitable to be used in a plywood operation.
