Cantek 43" Wide Planer  PR1100N

The Cantek 43" Wide Planer  PR1100N is designed with user friendly controls. Planing the material prior to sanding allows increased efficiency. The spiral insert cutterhead produces a fine finish while requiring less horsepower than traditional straight knives.  The digital thickness control allows for precise adjustment of the conveyor belt to 0.001” resolution.  Special emphasis has been made for safe operation of this machine with emergency devices on the infeed, outfeed, conveyor table, and access doors.
