Strengths and benefits

  • Long precision ground cast iron beds help to ensure accurate planing up to 12' wide. The Aluminium fence is over 1 metre in length, can be tilted to 45 degrees and can be moved across the cutterblock to extend the life of the blades when working with narrower timber.  A lever located at the end of the infeed bed adjusts the planing depth between 0 and 3mm reading from the large scale. 
  • The outstanding feature of this machine is that both planing tables are hinged and lift together as one. In addition to that, the planing fence can be left in place so that changing function from planing to thicknessing is quick and easy. Once the table had been raised, it locks into position and the cutter guard swings into place. The whole operation takes only seconds.
  • A large handwheel adjusts the thicknessing bed height with a scale marked out in mm and a lock to ensure accuracy when machining a batch of components. In addition we include a micro adjuster to set the thicknesser height to an accuracy of 0.1mm.
  • The drive mechanism for the thicknesser can be disengaged during planing operations to save wear & tear on those moving parts.

It is essential to use dust extraction with a planer thicknesser. The extractor removes all the dust and chips which will otherwise build up, causing a blockage and eventually damage to the machine. Using an extractor also increases the life of the knives.
