20in Industrial Thicknesser

  • 20in Industrial Thicknesser

    While the 16in unit performs well for most users, the 20in unit builds on the same design with a couple of major upgrades. 

    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 is a larger diameter and has four blades installed - providing better inherent balance and 33% more cuts per minute compared with the 16in unit.

    Check and Compare Spec's Before You Commit - The optional tungsten carbide-knife helical spiral head supplied is fitted with the premium full six-spiral 126-knife helical spiral head, not the economy sub-100 knife versions found on other brands.

    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 that once assembled provides a jointer-like 1430mm bed
    • Integral rollers for passing material from the outfeed to infeed side
