The Class TI 120 is one of SCM Group’s finest manual tilting spindle shapers. The tilting spindle allows craftsmen to use more creativity in designing high-end, custom products. The quality and flexibility of this machine are especially appealing to architectural millwork operations. 

Monoblock technology is used in the design and fabrication of the base. The solid, welded base undergoes a treatment called normalization which stabilizes the metal and assures exact tolerances. All machine mechanisms are mounted, aligned, and referenced to the base. This design is vastly superior to frames that are bolted together and have no true reference point.

The Class TI 120 Shapers include a healthy 5.5” capacity under the nut. Coupled with the digital indicator for the spindle height, this makes the SCM Group shapers perfect for the use of stacked tooling. For example, many woodworkers use a tooling package consisting of three cutters for making cabinet doors. The stile, rail, and panel cutters are all mounted on the same spindle. By raising or lowering the spindle, it is possible to perform all three operations without changing the cutter or the spindle.

If you could turn a combat tank into a shaper, this would be the outcome. The Class TI 120 is a tilting arbor shaper like nothing you’ve seen. When removing large amounts of material while the spindle is tilted, great stresses are put on a shapers spindle. SCM’S innovative engineering and European forging allows for the machine to handle such stresses and loads.

A standard feature on the Class TI 120 is the MK 4 interchangeable spindle. This feature allows the use of different spindles for various tooling with different spindle diameters. An upgrade to a larger shaper does not mean that all tooling needs to be replaced. Special tools can continue to be used simply by changing out to a different spindle. A 1-1/4" spindle comes standard. You also receive a spare 1-1/4" spindle.

The Class TI 120 comes standard with a large shaper hood with memory pins. If removed, the hood will go right back into the same position, so it is accurate and repeatable. The fences are adjusted by means of a mechanical hand crank that features a digital (mechanical) readout of the fence positioning. This convenient feature makes it simple to set up the hood for a number of different profiles and operations.
