Gilbert 8-Roll High-Speed Planer

GILBERT'S unique "PULL THROUGH" modular design is based on the foremost European technology that has been proven to reduce downtime significantly. It increases the planer flexibility and productivity and improves the surface quality of standard lumber (perfect, smooth wood finishes without waving). Each piece of wood is independently dragged one from the other, spacing not withstanding.

Features

  • Unique and innovative design
  • High feed speed rates up to 4,000 FPM
  • High productivity-95% and more
  • Rapid return on your investment
  • Reduces Stops in production – 95% and more
  • The wood can be seen traveling through the planer

Gilbert 6-Roll Compact Planer

The Gilbert "Compact" Planer requires up to 50% less space than a conventional planer. This Planer used a "Pull Through" technology as like the Modular Planer. The Planer runs with a gap between each piece of wood. Every piece of wood is dragged through independently from the other, no matter the space between each piece.

Features

  • Unique and innovative design
  • Sturdy modular frame and easy to maintain
  • High feed speed rates up to 2200 FPM
  • High productivity – 95% and more
  • Rapid return on your investment
  • Improves production
  • Powered by an electric motorization
  • Planing stays visible

Advantages

  • Heavy duty and easy to adjust
  • High efficiency feed system
  • Pineapple specially built in a spherical form. Ensuring a constant infeed without breaking wood fibers
  • Pineapple's pressure on the wood is controlled by an airbag
  • All the bridge rolls are controlled by the same airbag system
  • The wood does not have to be accumulated before the pineapple. Pieces of wood can be fed one at a time

Gilbert Feed Table & Bridge

High performance infeed tables and powered bridges. High speed rates up to 4,000 feet per minute. A Scan and Set option can be installed on the Powered Bridge for piece by piece optimization.

Features

  • Sturdy modular frame
  • Easy Maintenance
  • High efficiency feed system

Gilbert Electric Motorization

The Gilbert electric motorization system significantly improves the planer production. The same system is used as n the Gilbert Planer; that is, one motor will drive four feed rolls. Therefore, there is four times more torque on each roll and half as much energy is consumed.

Features

  • Accommodates all planers and feed tables
  • Helps protect the environment by eliminating hydraulic oil
  • Improves production
  • Eliminates downtime due to regular maintenance procedures
