16in Industrial Thicknesser

  • 16in Industrial Thicknesser

    Please Note - the single-phase 16in thicknesser is currently available for pre-order with delivery to take place late June

    If you need a machine to run all-day, every-day and have heavy-duty planing requirements, put this unit on your shopping list. It will not disappoint!

    The cabinet stand is thick, welded steel plate designed to provide a secure base for the rest of machine, supporting the motor and absorbing the vibration inherent in planing operations. The motor is either a 3HP single-phase (15-Amp, 240V) or 5HP three-phase (415V) and runs a triple-belt pulley system to the cutterhead. The cutterhead is supported by large Japanese SKF bearings, for smoother, quieter operation with lower friction - improving service life and performance. The straight blade cutterhead has three blades installed - with an option getting a tungsten carbide-knife helical spiral head supplied fitted for improved cutting performance.

    Some of the most important other features of this unit are - 

    • Massive cast-iron base, feed table and cutterhead assembly
    • Two feed-speed gearbox included as standard
    • Four massive support posts with chain-driven precise height adjustment
    • Cutterhead locks for consistent thicknessing large quantities of material
    • Integrated dust chute with 4in outlet for efficient extraction
    • Mobile wheel kit built into base with one foot engagement to move around as necessary
    • Serrated steel infeed and ultra-high density rubber outfeed roller will not mar work
    • Industrial magnetic no-volt-release switch with quick stop button
    • Cast-iron feed support tables
    • Integral rollers for passing material from the outfeed to infeed side
