The Cantek GT610HI Cardan Shaft Drive Double Surface Planer is capable of speeds up to 98 feet per minute and its robust cast-iron body & industrial Cardan drive system ensure high production planing day in and day out. The large-diameter cutter heads are the spiral type with two-sided solid carbide inserts which produce a clean finish with superior stock removal capacity.

The powerful Cardan shaft drive system provides maximum feeding power with higher capacity feed rates. The Cardan system drives the top conveyor, (3) bed rollers, the top sectional feed roller, and smooth outfeed rolls. The spring-loaded feed system passes the material over the bottom head allowing it to act like a jointer to flatten the board prior and then a sectional infeed roller feeds the material through the top head for accurate dimensioning.

Experience the convenience of an operator control panel with digital thickness control (mm/inch), individual amp meters for cutterheads and feed, digital speed display, hour meter, and emergency shut off. The thickness can be programmable in 0.001"/ 0.01mm resolution, adding the highest precision to your thickness operation.

This machine comes equipped with top and bottom insert knife cutterheads with standard 2-sided reversible knives (105 knives for each cutterhead). They are oriented in a spiral pattern to reduce load, noise and provide optimum finishing results. This system allows for maximum stock removal due to the type of knife and the way it sits in the cutterhead.

The bottom cutterhead, as well as the top dust hood, can be quickly removed from the machine to facilitate convenient knife changes. The bearings are a precision ABEC 7 RHP bearing known for its high precision and long wear life. The infeed bed is adjustable to set the desired stock removal from the bottom head. The height is indicated using a dial indicator.
