Weeke Drill and Dowel Inserter,

Model ABD 100 


Weeke’s model ABD 100 is designed for small and large capacity horizontal drilling, gluing, and dowel insertion.  The ABD 100 is produced by skilled technicians with a long tradition for excellence in engineering and machine building.

The Model ABD 100 is built on a heavy-duty base with welded steel construction.  The main horizontal beam of the machine holds the carriage for the boring spindle and insertion device, as well as the hopper that feeds the dowel driver.

There are two separate workstations on the machine capable of processing two parts independently (left-hand and right-hand), or one large part.  The machine has one set of CNC controlled processing aggregates with horizontal drilling and dowel driving capabilities.

The processing aggregates are positioned via precision gear rack in the
X-axis.  Height adjustment of the processing aggregates is done manually.


Machine Operating Sequence


The CNC program is selected at the PC control on the machine.  Parts are then manually loaded and positioned against the machine backstops.  Once parts are positioned, there is a work piece clamp, activated by foot pedal, which comes down on top of the piece at each station.  The panel support beams and clamps are PVC coated to protect the work piece.

Once the parts are loaded and clamped, a cycle start button is activated.  The drilling and dowel insertion then takes place.  After this, the mechanical clamp is released, and parts are manually removed from the machine.

Stiles Link Rite:

      -     Stiles Link Rite takes the source files and split them to route information to different machining centers and horizontal or vertical boring equipment based on the tooling available on the machine.



Barcode Software (Barcode Control)


The barcode control is prepared for connection to a barcode reader of Datalogic.

Software to read a barcode via the serial interface. The software allows for the

following individual adaptation of the barcode information:

- Program name

- Place number

- Modus for two places at the same time, e.g. for alternating processing

The barcode can additionally include up to four variables (5-digit, in 1/10 mm). When using variables the new NC-program is automatically generated after scanning through the production list.

Further functions:

- Creating of production lists with help of the barcode, additionally a rated value can be passed on in the barcode.

- Connection of the barcode software to the project manager.  An imported project which includes the barcode for this part as an index can be processed with the barcodes irrespective of the sequence in the production list.

- Support and vacuum cup positioning can be displayed as a graphic or optional as a

laser projection.
