Pentho Compact C3 Performance Tenoner


With the advanced technology of Vertongen, the Pentho Compact C3 Performance Tenoner (“the intelligent tenoner”) is a high-end machine capable of making quick, high-quality work of demanding and complex tenoning jobs. This series of Vertongen tenoner is suitable for the most professional workshops and craftsmen.

With the cut-off saw, tenon heads and a vertical spindle having vastly reduced noise, machining is less obtrusive and allows the operator to hone in with more focus. The ability to swivel up to 60 degrees in both directions, despite being heavy-duty, makes this tenoner highly adaptable and able to be altered to fit the operator’s needs.

Thanks to the 7” touchscreen panel, monitoring the machine’s functions and adjusting said functions have never been easier. The intuitive and straightforward interface is as friendly to less tech-savvy operators as it is to more tech-savvy operators.

The dust-rejecting transparent safety screen moves together with the table to cover the machine completely – keeping the machine dust-free and healthy.

Conforming to all CE regulations, this tenoner is health & safety cautious without sacrificing functionality.

The Pentho Compact C3 incorporates an extension to the touch screen controls and makes for far more intelligent, efficient operation. Features include:

  • Easy storing and recalling of machine settings. This makes for far greater efficiency when operating the machine and eliminates any time-consuming settings adjustments.
  • Individual electronic axe indicators with the display of the current and requested position of the different tool axis. This allows for more accuracy when monitoring the axes and grants a higher degree of control for the operator.
