The infeed rollers are suspended in place, ensuring that they lift gently when working with a large depth of cut.
Enter the required dimension, press Start and the thicknesser table will move precisely to the required position. Set and actual values are displayed on LED displays. Additional optional functions, such as incremental position and four programmable thicknesser table positions are available.
Turn the control knob for quick adjustment, and push the button for fine adjustment. The LED display clearly shows the actual value.
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.
4 trapezoidal spindles guarantee exact adjustment precision and ensure maximum thicknessing 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 thicknessing table is guided with an accuracy of a tenth of a millimetre.
Optional integrated adjustable rollers are available for processing workpieces with high resin or moisture content.
For those customers that regularly process wet or resinous wood, we would recommend the option of the workpiece roller and lubrication unit on the infeed side of the machine.
Increased comfort: Stable table extensions with workpiece roller on the outfeed side.
An optional 1150 mm adjustable height scissor table is available
