  • Description

    The SCM Nova FS 520 planer thicknesser offers 20” wide surfacing capacity with optional powered rise and fall to the thicknessing table. Switching between surfacing and thicknessing is simple thanks to the simultaneous raising of the work tables. Precision that lasts a lifetime without noise with the system on connecting rods. The system guarantees the maximum movement fluidity and avoids deformations of the work table. This guarantees maximum stability, reliability, and ergonomics. 

    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.
