Planer Moulders from Daltons Wadkin

Daltons Wadkin has forged unique relationships and sole distributor partnerships with Europe’s leading planer moulder manufacturers; Kuper, Ledinek and SCM. Offering a comprehensive portfolio of joinery and mill specification equipment, the range includes everything from entry level four sided planers to ultra high speed moulders operating at up to 1000 m/min.


Italian manufacturers SCM have a long history of moulder innovation. Customers have the choice of small entry four sided planers to high production CNC controlled machines.

A classic four sided planer provides a number of advantages over separate hand fed machines or even a combination planer thicknesser. The SCM Profiset 40 is a popular through-feed solution for workshops looking to free up bottlenecks in the production of planed timber. The machine offers 4 heads and a finished section capacity of 180 x 105 mm supported with long infeed straightening table and variable speed feed.

For the production of moulded timber, the SCM Profiset 60EP models are available with up to 5 heads and optional universal head. The “EASY PLUS” electronic control option with overhead 7” LCD colour display delivers automatic powered adjustment of the near side vertical spindle and top horizontal spindle as well as the feed speed for fast, precision setting. Once set, the head positions and feed speed can be saved and recalled for repeat work.

For high production joinery work the SCM Superset NT is an automatic through feed moulder ideal for companies working multiple shifts and/or small batches, ideal for the production of window profiles, doors, stairs, beads, frames and furnishings. The machine structure has been specifically designed to enable the operator to work in ergonomic and safe conditions.
