  • Rugged cast iron and plate steel fabrication provide long term dependability and low maintenance.
  • Infeed conveyor/carpet (spiked) allows precision jointing accuracy especially on warped or twisted lumber.
  • Computerized top cutterhead positioner is accurate ±0.001" ensuring quick and accurate setup.
  • Cutterhead tooling technology guarantees low noise, reduced power requirements, minimal operations cost, and repetitive finish on the most difficult hardwoods.
  • Variable feed speeds up to 95'/min but frequency inverter allow the CANTEK double surfacer to meet high production demands.
  • Patented lifting column system (synchronized transmission) guarantees repetitive setup and long-term dependability.
  • Patented universal drive transmission for feed groups and infeed carpet allows a maintenance free design vs. chain and sprocket style feed systems. Also provides a "constant" feeding environment of materials for improved and constant finish.
  • Cutterheads are of solid steel construction, dynamically balanced and mated with precision pulleys.
  • Cutterheads are supported by "NKS" class 7 precision ball bearings and precision housings.
  • Chromed bed is standard on all CANTEK double surfacers yielding optimum wear.
