  • Optimal planing

The planer unit in the standard version has a 72 mm diameter cutter block with 3 knives (the optional “Tersa” cutter block is available with quick tightening knives and automatic adjustment). For an impeccable result, the pressure of the thicknesser feed rollers can be adjusted according to the type of wood machined. The thicknesser infeed roller has helical toothing to guarantee strong, constant work piece feed. In contrast, the sandblasted steel outfeed roller maintains the perfect post-machining finish.


  • Absolute rigidity

Very high rigidity of the surfacing fences made of extruded aluminum with 1670 mm length.


  • “Xylent” spiralknife cutter block with 3 series of knives

The 3 spiralknives give an exceptional finish. Reduced noise during machining provides a more comfortable working environment. It also improves the dust extraction due to the production of very small chips. Each cutter has 4 tips which can be rotated into the cutting position when worn. Therefore increasing the production life of the cutter block before knives require replacement.
