  • Usable blade life twenty times longer than standard blades
  • Four highly precise cutting edges on each knife
  • Optimised chip extraction and reduced chip volume
  • Tear-free jointing results
  • Reduced power consumption when compared to similar systems 

Infeed rollers

Infeed rollers



The infeed rollers are “float” mounted, and are thus lifted gently for large depths of cut. – Due to the positioning of the springs, the infeed rollers are lifted gently ensuring that constant pressure is applied to the workpiece. This is especially important when processing pieces with a large depth of cut.

“Digi-Drive”

“Digi-Drive”



Enter required dimension, press start and the planer table will move accurately to the required position. Required and actual values are shown on LED displays. Additional optional functions, such as incremental position and four programmable thicknesser table positions are available.

“Power-Drive“

“Power-Drive“



Turn the control switch for quick adjustment; push the button for fine adjustment. The LED display clearly shows the actual value.

Feed

Feed



Standard: Variable feed speed of between 5–20 m/min. Whether its a perfect finish or quick thickness calibration that is required, the correct feed speed can always be set to match.

Outstanding stability and long-lasting precision

Outstanding stability and long-lasting precision



4 trapezoidal spindles guarantee exact adjustment precision and ensure maximum planing bed load. Longitudinal guides integrated into the side of the machine chassis absorb the pressure that is put on the outfeed side and ensure that the planing table is guided with an accuracy of a tenth of a millimeter.

Adjustable integrated bed rollers

Adjustable integrated bed rollers



Optional integrated adjustable bed rollers are available for processing workpieces with high resin or moisture content.
