Tenoners and mortisers - Tenoners and mortisers - balestrini pico fj

CNC Dual side Tenoning-mortising machine

Dedicated to the execution of “Miter Door”, “Face Frame” and “French Joint” joints for the production of frames and shuttered doors in solid wood or melamine-coated MDF, wich can be assembled without dowels.

Thanks to its unique design, the machine has two worktables always ready to use, to switch easily from top machining to longitudinal one.



The 4.5 kW tenoning unit and the 2 kW mortising unit make it possible to produce tenons and mortises with a reduced number of passes. The tenoning and mortising depth is adjusted in the parking area, which is also used for tool maintenance.


Top and longitudinal machining operations are carried out on different work stations but on the same machine, thus expanding the applications and reducing overall dimensions.

The control panel placed on a mobile support follows the operator to the work station.


The full enclosure of the machine ensures protection without reducing its ease-of-use, and keeps the outside environment clean.

The side suction outlets allow to convey shavings and dust towards the extraction system.


It is the new Human-Machine Interface with an extremely simple and effective design, which allows to select numerous macros for Miter Door and French Joint joints programming as well as tenons, holes and multiple mortises programming.
