To perform well an in industrial environment, a good planer thicknesser needs to be heavily built, easy to change from surfacing to thicknessing and have a very accurate and solid fence. The FS31 and FS41 have all this and more; Powerful and heavily built, the functionality and performance of these machines make them a pleasure to use.
The fences, which are vital to accurate squaring of material, are probably the best available at this level. Mounted on 35mm solid steel bar, they are completely rigid and the mechanisms for tilt are precision machined cast iron quadrants with positive stops at 90º and 45º. Unlike many other planer thicknessers, the tables lift parallel to the machine, making it easy to access both its ends. This feature also gives excellent chip clearance.
The generous table lengths of both machines give excellent straightening capability and the 100mm diameter cutter block on both machines feature HSS knives; 3 on the FS32 and 4 on the FS41.
The thicknessing tables are supported centrally by a large column, a proven design which gives superior support and rigidity. The 4-225mm thicknessing capacity offers an excellent range for maximum flexibility and the feed speed is 8M/minute, giving a smooth finish. These machines are uncompromising in their heavy build quality and are designed to withstand the most arduous work day in, day out.
This machine is available in either single phase or 3 phase.
