  • Description

    The FS 41ES is the flag ship combination planer thicknesser in the SCM Minimax range, designed for professional craftsman looking for a compact cost effective, capable solution. The machine can be configured with optional powered table movement and digital readout for quick setting and ultimate precision when thicknessing.

    The pressure of the thicknesser feed roller to be adjusted according to the type of wood being machined.  The infeed roller has a helicoidal profile to guarantee firm and constant work piece feed, while the outfeed roller in sandblasted steel, maintains the perfect post-processing finishing. For maximum long lasting stability the cast iron thicknessing table is supported on 4 spindles with trapezoidal threads.

    The machine offers a choice of three cutterblocks; high speed steel (HSS), “TERSA” or “Xylent”.

    A traditional HSS cutter block is supplied as standard. An optional “TERSA” cutter block can also be specified for fast knife changing with no set up required.

    For ultimate performance the optional “Xylent” spiralknife cutterblock with 3 series of knives is designed to give an exceptional finish. Reduced noise during machining provides a more comfortable working environment. It also improves the dust extraction due to the production of very small chips. Each cutter has 4 tips which can be rotated into the cutting position when worn. Therefore increasing the production life of the cutter block before knives require replacement.
