STAR "V" MACHINERY'S Model SLG-2LB Linear V-Groover is designed to v-groove various wood materials, wood composites or plastics such as solid surface. V-Folds to create a build-up front edge, cove back splash profile, scribe strip, dado for back panel, double edge shelving etc. Other v-groove angles besides the standard 90° can easily be employed.
Two cutter stations allow for rapid profile changes without any downtime! Switching from front edge profile to the cove back slash profile for solid surface countertops is being accomplished within seconds by a push of a button.
The tape, which acts as the hinge for miter folding, is applied automatically and cut to length. The feeder belt moves the material over high-precision, stainless steel roller table, which minimizes friction and reduces or eliminates marring of the material. The v-groove is being applied from above. Both linear as well as cross cuts up to 14-16" away from the fixed fence are possible.
