The Cantek GT635ARD 25″ 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.

The machine frame is made from industrial cast iron with superior vibration damping qualities resulting in superior planing finish and machine longevity. The dovetail elevation posts are also made of cast iron and raised and lowered by threaded screws. The bottom and top cutterheads are spiral insert knife types. They use solid carbide insert knives, which are an industry-standard size of 30x12x1.5mm. The knives have slight chamfers in the corners, which produce a smooth and well-blended finish.

A powerful 20hp motor drives the bottom head while an even more powerful 25hp motor drives the top. This, combined with the spiral insert knife head, allows superior stock removal with less load on the motors. A 5HP motor with an industrial gearbox drives the feed. The bottom head slides quickly out of the machine for fast knife change/rotation. The top head is accessed conveniently by removing the dust hood.

The spring-loaded pressure pins in the conveyor system overlap to minimize gaps to ensure the workpiece is held firmly. The system is designed to hold the piece firmly but not flatten it like a traditional feed roll. This is advantageous when the material is passing over the bottom jointing cutterhead.

Feel confident feeding uneven work material thanks to the solid steel roller, sectional feed roller, & sectional chip breaker before the top cutterhead and followed by a solid pressure shoe and rubber feed roller. The rubber roller also ensures no marking of the workpiece with any chips left on the surface.
