The Cantek C251-8 24″ Widebelt Sander is compact and versatile with a combination sanding unit for calibration and final sanding.  The robust sanding unit and heavy-duty frame ensure optimum sanding results.  Motorized thickness adjustment with digital thickness control for fast and accurate table adjustment.

The single combination head allows the operator full control of sanding operations for calibrating off of the rubber drum & finish sanding by lowering the platen through an eccentric lever. Quick-release handle for belt changing and access to the removable platen.

Centrally located control panel for convenient operator access. Includes digital motorized thickness adjustment to 2-decimal places in Inch & 1-decimal in MM. Also, emergency stop button, ammeter for load monitoring, and hour meter to aid in maintenance scheduling.

An electronic send & receive sensor precisely detects the sanding belt for the most reliable belt tracking. The machine is also equipped with belt overrun limit switches for added safety. Variable feed speed allows the operator to choose the correct sanding speed for various sanding applications, belt grits, wood species, and desired results.

High-quality rubber conveyor belt with automatic belt tracking. The tracking system ensures the conveyor belt does not travel off to one side, causing damage. The C251 is equipped with a powerful 10HP sanding motor and a pneumatic disc braking system to facilitate faster belt changes. Also equipped with dual infeed and dual outfeed hold-down rollers to firmly secure the panel during sanding operations.

Equipped with an over height lever gate that will automatically shut off the machine should a workpiece too thick be sent through for sanding. Also equipped with a front safety bar, emergency stop buttons on the front and rear of the machine, and safety switches on all door panels. On the electrical panel, high-quality Schneider electrical controls and Camozzi pneumatics are readily available.
