Smooth results with the right thicknessing planer – soon also in your workshop? The T45 thicknessing planer provides you impressively silent with a perfect planing result. In this respect, the T45 offers ideal conditions for modern production: It supplies cleanly planed surfaces, is quick and easy to operate and offers ideal value-for-money.
Perfectly set at the first attempt
The standard electronic control unit, with 99 storable planing dimensions, makes setting the planing height so easy that even the first piece fits like the last piece. The thicknessing table can also be moved in increments of 0.1 mm by simply depressing the button. The controls for the feed rate are also within easy reach of the operator. The T45 comes equipped with a soft start Star Delta starter and an electronic wear free spindle brake.
Perfection comes as a standard
Thanks to the TERSA solid steel cutterhead, which enables a positive, exact positioning of the knives, the surfaces are perfectly planed – and it takes less than a minute to change each knife. The TERSA reversible knives are available in four different types (chrome steel, HSS, M42 and carbide). In addition, by using two dummy cutters, the standard four-knife cutterhead can also be operated as a two-knife cutterhead.
You can also switch between two feed speeds (6 and 12m/min) while the machine is running. The optional infinitely variable inverter drive enables speeds between 15 and 80 feet per minute – thereby allowing you to dial in a perfect finish every time. Furthermore, MARTIN offers different feed and table systems for the T45: Thicknessing tables with or without table rollers, and/or with or without vacuum table hold-downs. A sectional steel infeed roller and a second outfeed roller are options to consider. Rubber or grooved or smooth steel feed rollers are also available.
The T45 Contour - profile up to 630mm in width
You can choose between the Contour15 and the Contour25 achieving a profile depth of 15,5 or 25 mm respectively. Both machines come with the “Contour Planing” cutterblock with 4 TERSA knife pockets as well as 2 corrugated back knife pockets. If your main focus is on profiling you can choose the “Contour Profiling” cutterblock equipped with 2 TERSA knife pockets and 4 corrugated back knife pockets. For thinner workpieces you should consider the vacuum table. This option in combination with a vacuum pump enables you to machine very thin workpieces.
Both Contour machines are equipped with an efficient control unit, whose storage capacity is particularly advantageous in profiling work. The precise positioning of the thicknessing table, with an accuracy of 0.1 mm, is even more important for profiling as it is for planing. Furthermore, the Contour machine’s control system recognizes if profile cutters have been inserted into the cutterhead, ensuring a safe working environment thanks to its intelligent monitoring.
It's so easy to set up the profile
Profile knives can be inserted into the four cutterhead knife pockets in both machines. The cutters can be inserted radially or axially and with the supplied setting gauge, set-up times can be reduced considerably. Profiles can be planed up to 630 mm wide and 25 mm deep quickly, easily and accurately.
The T45 Contour opens up an unimaginable range of new products and possibilities. Besides planing, you can profile complete church pews seats in one pass. Cabinet door manufacturers can specialize providing profiled door panels to their customers. Decoratively profiled billiard table aprons can also be achieved with this unique machine. In brief: The T45 Contour is the first choice wherever wide profiles have to be produced in one pass.
