Co. Kerry benefits from smooth and straight timber with the installations of a Weinig Cube 4 sided planer and EMC Woody twin head planer

These are wood working machines (feed-through machines) with 4 spindles in a row for the four sided processing of work pieces through planing. The work pieces are guided by feed rollers (transport rollers) along the milling spindles.

Design and principle
A table is mounted on a elongated machine frame. The machine frame is equipped with motors to drive the spindles. In most cases four side planers are assembled with four spindles, which are arranged below, right, left and above the table. The work piece passes the with cutter heads tipped spindles via toothed wheels.

The process is divided into following steps:

Surface planing
Bottom processing
Joining Side processing
Thickness planing
Top processing

Characteristics that distinguish it from a moulder are:
Four side planers process work pieces with rectangular, flat side surfaces. Only in exceptional cases they can profile up to 10 mm deep. The spindles are adjustable axially and radially to max. 10 mm. Older four side planers often don’t offer any adjustment. In contrast, moulders profile rectangular work pieces and their spindles are adjustable to more than 10 mm.
