Product information

Long precision ground cast iron beds help to ensure accurate planing up to 12′ wide. The Aluminium fence is over 1 metre in length, can be tilted to 45 degrees and can be moved across the cutterblock to extend the life of the blades when working with narrower timber. A lever located at the end of the infeed bed adjusts the planing depth between 0 and 3mm reading from the large scale. The outstanding feature of this machine is that both planing tables are hinged and lift together as one. In addition to that, the planing fence can be left in place so that changing function from planing to thicknessing is quick and easy. Once the table had been raised, it locks into position and the cutter guard swings into place. The whole operation takes only seconds. A large handwheel adjusts the thicknessing bed height with a scale marked out in mm and a lock to ensure accuracy when machining a batch of components. In addition, we include a micro adjuster to set the thicknesser height to an accuracy of 0.1mm. The drive mechanism for the thicknesser can be disengaged during planing operations to save wear & tear on those moving parts. Supplied with 100mm dust extraction outlet, 4 adjustable feet, Integral 16amp industrial plug socket (round blue type). Requires a 16amp electric supply. It is essential to use dust extraction with a planer thicknesser. ** Charnwood W590 Specification: Surfacing width 305mm (12″), Length of surfacing tables 1290mm, Maximum depth of cut 3mm, Fence tilt 90 – 45 degrees, Table height 850mm, Thicknessing capacity 5-230mm (1/4″-9″), Length of thicknessing table 545mm, Feed speed 7m/min, Maximum depth of cut 4.5mm, Cutterblock speed 5500rpm, Number of knives 3, Motor ( induction) 3000w (4hp), 240v, Assembled Dimensions (WxDxH) 1290mm x 1000mm x 600mm, Assembly Time Required 30 Minutes (Needs 2 People), Shipping Dimensions (WxDxH) 1320 x 970 x 570mm, Minimum Door Access Width 580mm, Weight 210kg, Rating Trade, Product Guarantee 5 Years.
