W1032000 The Hoffmann MU3P is a Professional, pneumatically controlled dovetail routing & jointing machine to rout a single dovetail keyway with each machining cycle. The heavy cast aluminum construction with large, ergonomically shaped table surface, precision linear bearings, galvanized steel motor carriage with integrated motor fine adjustment.

This pneumatical dovetail routing machine is the more automated version of the MU 3. Aside from the same attributes in terms of design and built quality, the machine features two pneumatic cylinders and a pneumatic foot pedal.
One short stroke cylinder is used to clamp the material the instant the foot pedal is pressed, while a second, larger cylinder is used to move the router carriage up and down.
The main benefits compared to the manual machines are faster and more comfortable operation, more consistent results due to set routing feed rates and the fact that both hands can remain on the material during the routing sequence. This is an important advantage when processing longer parts.
