CANTEK | GT-HD SERIES EXTRA HEAVY DUTY DOUBLE SURFACE PLANERS

High speed production double surface planer for the most demanding planning applications.

The Cantek GT-HD Series Extra Heavy Duty Double Surface Planers are suitable for the most demanding planing applications. The HD series are capable of high feed speeds with maximum stock removal capabilities.  They feature a robust cast-iron body & industrial cardan drive system ensure high production planing day in and day out.  The large diameter cutterheads are spiral type with two-sided solid carbide inserts which produce a clean finish with superior stock removal capacity. The spring loaded feed system passes the material over the bottom head allowing it to act like a jointer to flatten the board prior and then a sectional infeed roller feeds the material through the top head for accurate dimensioning.

When it comes to vacuum, hold down a bigger pump is not necessarily the answer. More important is the design of the vacuum table and how efficient it is at holding small parts during machining operations.
