What you'll need

Joint

What joints are you making?

Surface, corner, centre panel, angled?
See table below for requirements.

Software

Software

Speak to the CNC manufacturer for the macro
and CNC software or programme this yourself.

Aggregate

Is an angle aggregate necessary?

Angle, swivelling, corner notch or door lock unit. Confirm with the CNC manufacturer that the P-System cutter can be used with the aggregate.

Cutting tool

Cutting Tool

Select the appropriate P-System cutting tool and arbor.

Angle aggregate

  • One to four spindle angle aggregates
  • Corner notching aggregate
  • Aggregate for door locks
Angle aggregate

Manually adjustable swivelling aggregates

Information: Several tool changes required for angle cuts, drilling and P-System grooves

Information: The cutting depth in the centre of the surface may be restricted depending on the model

Tip: For mitres, spare yourself a tool change and drill the hole using a manual drill jig!

Manually adjustable swivelling aggregates

Automatically adjustable swivelling aggregates

Note: Automatically adjustable swivelling aggregate with automatic tool changer. The profile groove is restricted to 10 mm in the centre of the surface.

(Flex 5+C, from manufacturing year 2015)

Automatically adjustable swivelling aggregates
  • Possible
  • Possible with shaft tool
  • Only possible with Zeta P2 and positioning pins
  • Not possible
    • Tip - Combine CNC machinery with the Zeta P2

CNC machinery can also be combined with the Zeta P2 without using an angle aggregate if necessary. Drill two 5mm positioning holes with the CNC machine, this accurately aligns the Zeta P2 to then make the P-System groove.
