CANTEK | GT610HI CARDAN SHAFT DRIVE DOUBLE SURFACE PLANER

High efficiency and high-speed double surface planing.

The Cantek GT610HI Cardan Shaft Drive Double Surface Planer is capable of speeds up to 98 feet per minute and its 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.

Why Cantek GT610HI Cardan Shaft Drive Double Surface Planer?
