Planers | 16" Double Surface Planer

GT400BRD | 16" Double Surface Planer

The Cantek GT400BRD 16″ Double Surface Planer has a robust cast-iron body for industrial planing day in and day out.  The spiral insert knife cutterheads produce a smooth planed finish with maximum stock removal.  The material is passed over the bottom head with a spring-loaded pin feed system allowing it to act like a jointer to flatten the board prior to being planed to an accurate thickness with the top head.

  • Spring loaded conveyor pin system ensures material is passed over the bottom cutterhead to resulting in a flat and uniform board prior to planing to thickness on the top head
  • Spiral insert knife cutterheads with two-sided solid carbide knives produce a smooth finish with increased stock removal capacity and extremely quiet operation
  • Heavy-duty cast-iron machine body and table for vibration free cutting
  • Digital electronic thickness adjustment in INCH and MM (Inch = 0.001” / mm = 0.01mm resolution) for precise thickness control
  • 16″ wide x 6.7″ thick planing capacity
  • Cutterheads are spiral insert type with six (6) rows of carbide inserts
  • (2) driven and (1) idle bed roll for superior feeding of even difficult material
  • Swiveling control panel for more ergonomic access to machine controls
  • Inverter variable speed control with feed speeds from 26 to 80 FPM
  • Easy to access external handwheel adjustment of infeed bed
  • Hard chromed worktable for high wear resistance
  • Auto lubrication to conveyor chain, central lubrication for dovetail elevation guideways
  • Section chipbreaker and sectional feed roller before top cutterhead
  • Rubber outfeed top roller to prevent chip marking
  • Over thickness safety shut-off bar across infeed.
