The Sedgwick CP planer thicknesser is designed and built for precision, long life and minimum maintenance. Its rigid mainframe assembly gives exceptional stability, and accurately houses the feed and cutterblock bearings, and the surface and thickness tables.
The machine is supplied as standard with a four knife TERSA cutterblock, providing improved finish, quieter running, and minimum set-up times. Double sided knives are available in a range of compositions for different applications.
The cast infeed table rises and falls in square gibs for long term accuracy and is fitted with a rule and vertical lock. A generously proportioned cast iron fence is then mounted off the outfeed table on a rack and pinion. The fence can be tilted between 90º – 45º making it suitable for bevel work and chamfering, and is easily returned to 90º via a positive stop. Adjustable shaw guards are also supplied.
For long term accuracy, and to avoid time consuming mode changes, the surfacing tables remain in place when thicknessing, utilising instead a dual function chip collection hood.
The thicknessing table is cast iron and mounted on a large diameter precision ground pillar to ensure precise and parallel positioning, with an off-centre lock for added rigidity. Extension rollers at either end run in self-lubricating bushes. Large diameter steel feed rollers (one spiral-fluted the other rubber coated) are driven by an independent motor and gear unit, which on three phase machines has two speeds. The feed rollers run in self-lubricating bushes and are driven from the geared unit by a heavy duty chain for efficient and constant feeding of demanding production work and difficult stock.
