CMJ Machine Description

Our coping machine provides a clean, tear-out free, end coped/tenoned part every time!

Pillar’s CMJ coping machine is designed to create end coping/tenoning for rail ends, as well as finger jointing or end matching – all in one machine. Incoming parts can be either square or profiled and require no backer block or chip breaker.

Standard Operation

The CMJ is manually operated with 2 counter rotating vertical spindles. One spindle clears the leading edge of the rail with the other spindle then moving in and processing the remainder of the components width. Cycle time for the CMJ is 6-8 seconds.

The machine uses a PLC control for simple and easy to use controls. The CMJ utilizes two (2) counter rotating vertical spindles. One spindle clears the leading edge of the rail (jump cope) then the second spindle moves in and processing the remainder of the component’s width.

The machine allows for two sets of profile tools to be installed at the same time. Switching from one to the other is as easy as a flip of a switch.
