COUNTERTOP MANUFACTURING SYSTEMS
For over 50 years, Evans Midwest has designed, manufactured, installed and serviced kitchen countertop postforming and laminating systems around the world. The line pictured above utilizes water based adhesive technology and can produce up to three countertops per minute.
Efficient Production and Lamination
The 0110 Post Former is renowned for its ability to produce countertops of consistent quality. This machine, featuring a pneumatic assisted heater, is adept at reducing operator fatigue and speeding up production. It’s especially versatile due to its adjustable leaf spacing and its ability to form and adhere laminate to the core in a single step, leading to optimal time savings and peak efficiency.
The 0207 Pinch Roller is another critical asset for laminating shops. Designed for both small and large operations, this machine ensures uniform bonding of laminate to the substrate. Its unique design caters to different types of tops, making it essential for running materials with a build-down, such as countertops.
Precision Cutting and Mitering
The Postforming Miter Saws by Evans Midwest are pivotal for achieving fast, accurate, precision miter cuts and drawbolt mortises in the fabrication of postformed kitchen countertops. They are backed by over 50 years of experience, setting the industry standard for countertop saws and cutting stations, and offering a multitude of options to meet the specific needs of every operation.
For operations requiring high-volume manufacturing, the Ultraform UF 2000 serves as a rugged, feed-through machine designed to meet a plethora of specific production requirements. This machine’s modular design and its availability in single and double-sided models allow for optimal customization.
COUNTERTOP CUTTING STATIONS
Whether creating “Comfort Edge” profiles with European backsplashes or countertops with coved backsplashes, Evans Midwest’s cutting stations offer unparalleled quality. The innovative design of machines like the Autocove AC 3120 allows manufacturers to produce up to one countertop per minute or 5,000 linear feet per shift. The rigid frame and rear fence, uniform contact of the countertop to the heating element, and a concentric forming bar are critical in achieving quality backsplashes.
Countertop Core Building and Preparing
Evans Midwest Corfab machines stand out in the preparation of the countertop core. These machines are essential in starting with a raw particle board panel and ending in a machined countertop core ready for laminating, employing intelligent design to automatically feed and glue pre-cut solid wood, particleboard, MDF, or composite build-down.
Safety and Accuracy
Safety is paramount in the design of Evans Midwest machines. The 0710 Miter Saw, for instance, is designed with a fitted saw guard to provide maximum operator safety without compromising accuracy, workability, or production flow. It ensures accurate miter cuts and maintains product consistency and accuracy, proving itself to be both reliable and dependable within the countertop fabricators industry.
From the Compact 2480 Over Arm Router designed for quickly cutting sink holes to the customizable SF 2000 Postformer designed for small to medium-sized manufacturers, Evans Midwest offers tailored solutions for every unique application. The breadth of options available ensures that every manufacturer, whether dealing with small or large operations, can find a solution that best fits their needs.
