NFXL | Hoffmann | Face Frame Assembly

  • Description

    The heavy-duty, large capacity (max. 8” wide moulding) MORSO NFXL is by far our most popular and most versatile face-frame notching machine for the production of beaded face-frames, French-mitered cabinet doors as well as muntin and mullion joints. Based on the smaller NFL but with a completely redesigned center stop and moveable fence arrangement, the maximum distance with the cutting head all the way back and the center fence moved all the way toward the operator is 8”. This wide adjustment range is ideal for custom cabinet manufactures needing 3”, 5” or even 7” wide top or bottom rails in their custom work. In addition to being able to accept face frame moulding up to 8” wide, the NFXL can be outfitted with a smaller cutting head and a 1/4” wide nose knife for the production of half-lap joints for window and door mullions, wine racks, etc. The machine features a heavy-duty steel frame with cast iron tabletop. The vertical travel of the cutting head, which is also made of cast-iron, can be adjusted depending on work-piece thickness, assuring comfortable operation.

    Factory-fitted cast-iron extensions tables for left and right side are included and so is a full set of MORSO U-channel fences and flip-stop (optional DGS 1000 fence system is a popular upgrade).
