Apache 7

Manufacturer: Sarmax

Part #: Apache 7

Description: Sarmax Apache 7 was designed for those customers who need to impregnate elements with constant shape and medium section as planks height max of 32 cm. It is equipped with a lateral door that opens completely allowing a fast and effective cleaning of the internal mechanisms.  This cleaning operation can be performed thanks to a high-pressure gun connected to the hydraulic circuit of the machine. The brushes adjustment can be made without stopping the working cycle. In fact the two mechanical wheels (one for all vertical brushes and one for all horizontal brushes) are located on the external part of the machine frame.

The SARMAX impregnating machines were designed to optimize time and cost, ensuring a perfect application of the primer on the wooden elements and an impressive recover of the liquid in excess. The SARMAX impregnating machines were engineered combining clear and simple concepts of functionality to innovative technical ideas. Thanks to that SARMAX impregnating machines are characterized by following features:

  • Low operating costs
  • Reliability and durability
  • Shorter cleaning and maintenance times
  • Excellent and constant results over time

Our machines are designed and manufactured according to clear and simple principles of functionality, maintenance, and reliability, making them one of a kind in terms of new concepts:

  • The front cover opens completely permitting an easy and fast cleaning of the internal parts.
  • Brushes adjustment fast and accurate by external control. A single hand-wheel positions all the vertical brushes. Another hand-wheel position all the horizontal brushes.

  • Any work-piece dimension differences are automatically offset by the machine mechanisms.
  • The operating mechanisms  (chains, pulleys, bearings, and wheels)   are all completely outside the semi-finished product impregnating chamber

  • The parts that could jeopardize rotation of the rollers and the brushes that come into contact with the impregnation and washing liquid are made of non-oxidizing and non-corroding material such as stainless steel, aluminum, plastic

  •  Basement covered with anti-adherent treatment (3 coats of Teflon applied at 800°)

  • Carrying structure made of electrically welded, extra-strong steel

  • Patent system for fast and easy brush fitting and removing

  • A front “shower” area where impregnation liquid is sprinkled
  • A series of counter-rotation brushes opposite to the workpiece feeding direction.

  • A series of roller pressures (top and side) to assure a perfect flow of pieces. The side pressure special insert can be removed to process pieces having small sections 

  • The inside bottom of the machine has a high angle to allow quick drainage of liquids
  • A set of blowers remove any excess liquid from dovetail or grooves

  • Electronic variable feeding speed and brushes rotation speed with inverters.

  • Two tanks included: One for impregnant liquid containment and filtering. One for brushes deposit and cleaning.

  • An automatic double-membrane pump with 50 lt/minute capacity

  • A three-level filtering system assures complete removal of any particles or dust that might block the nozzles or create not aesthetic spots on the painted elements.

  1. Sucking filter plunged into the color/impregnant tank.

  2. Basket filter located on top of color/ impregnant tank.

  3. Cylindrical filter located between the membrane pump and the spraying area equipped with a handy tap to remove the liquid left inside and a practical locking/opening device for filter cleaning.
