SILENT-POWER®

SILENT-POWER®



The Silent-POWER® spiral knife cutterblock reduces the noise emissions when planing by more than a half. Specially developed tungsten carbide blades with their constant pulling cut, guarantee a tear free planing finish of every wood type. The optimised extraction hood ensures that the noticably shorter chips are effectively extracted and land considerably more compact in the dust bags. This more compact filling of the chip bags, saves you from having to frequently change the bags. Maximum reliability and highest level of planing quality - the innovative new development from Format-4 offers a planing system with knives that have a usable life up to 20 times longer when compared to a conventional HSS-blade system. Damaged blades can be exchanged individually, removed and replaced with a few turns of the hand. The advantages at a glance ...

Change the blades in record time

Change the blades in record time



For decades the Format-4 system with double sided disposable planer knifes proved its advantages. Perfectly manufactured and adjusted in the factory, there is no need to adjust the planer knives, and no expensive adjusting tools have to be purchased.

See and feel the incredible smooth finish!

See and feel the incredible smooth finish!



120 mm cutting diameter and the unique Format-4 knife system with reversible blades - for many decades a guarantee for excellent planing results. Maximum blade life and minimum cost of the blades ensure considerable savings.

Maximum thicknessing height for professional requirements

Maximum thicknessing height for professional requirements



With the amply dimensioned thicknessing height of up to 254 mm, even processing large solid wood trusses is simple and effort free.

Power-Drive

Power-Drive



The fully electrical “Power-Drive” thicknesser table control offers the most precise adjustment and repeat accuracy. With a twist of the knob, you can quickly adjust the thicknessing height, then fine-adjust using the button. An integrated LED-display displays the actual value.

Digi-Drive

Digi-Drive



The programmable “Digi-Drive” thicknessing table control makes it possible to enter the thicknessing height using the numeric keypad and the thicknessing bed positions itself automatically and precisely. Two intregrated LED displays show the current target and actual values. To optimise production you can save incremental measurements and individual thicknessing table positions.

continuous speeds

continuous speeds



Regardless of the type of wood and grain, the variable feed speed of between 4-16m/min always guarantees a perfect thicknessing result.

Outstanding stability and long-lasting precision

Outstanding stability and long-lasting precision



4 trapezoidal spindles guarantee exact adjustment precision and ensure maximum thicknessing bed load. Longitudinal guides integrated into the side of the machine chassis absorb the pressure that is put on the outfeed side and ensure that the thicknessing table is guided with an accuracy of a tenth of a millimetre.

A clean solution

A clean solution



The aerodynamically optimised construction of the dust extraction hood with its ample chip space guarantees an ideal chip extraction and clean working surface.

Sectional pressure bar

Sectional pressure bar



A recommended option when planing with a small depth of cut, with very thin workpieces or workpieces with varying thicknesses.

Intuitive Format-4 changeover concept

Intuitive Format-4 changeover concept



The tried and tested Format-4 operating concept reduces the effort in changing from planing to thicknessing to a minimum. The intuitive table clamping system makes it possible to synchronously lock and open the planing tables with a twist of the hand, industrial springs assist in the opening.

Electric automatic changeover

Electric automatic changeover



That is first class operating comfort. At the touch of a button you can open and close the planing table when changing from planing to thicknessing and vice versa.

Patented planer adjustment system

Patented planer adjustment system



Accurate adjustment is obtained with the patented planer adjustment system, which incorporates lateral prismatic guide rails.

Quick adjustment of cutting depth

Quick adjustment of cutting depth



With the new ergonomically shaped depth of cut adjustment handle, you can adjust the depth of cut quickly and precisely.

Adjusting the depth of cut

Adjusting the depth of cut



The depth of cut can be set to any depth up to 8 mm. Using the integrated magnifying glass you can view the set depth and achieve the exact results that you are looking for.

Stability, precision and space saving with the Format-4 planing fence

Stability, precision and space saving with the Format-4 planing fence



A masterpiece of stability, precision and space saving design - the innovative parallelogramm Format-4 planing fence system design allows you to be able to position your machine directly next to the workshop wall, without restricting the planing width. The planer fence can be tilted to any position between 90°–45°, the planer fence will always remain flush with the planing table.

Format-4 planer guard

Format-4 planer guard



Maximum operational safety and an unprecedented ease of use. The space saving planer guard integrated into the machine chassis also stabilises the workpiece when planing and bevelling the narrow edge.

The new Format-4 auxiliary fence

The new Format-4 auxiliary fence



When processing thin or narrow workpieces the new tiltable auxiliary fence attached to the planer fence, guarantees a safe and comfortable planing option.

Practical added value with FORMAT-4 table extensions

Practical added value with FORMAT-4 table extensions



Using the tried and tested Format-4 table extensions it is quick and easy to extend your thicknessing table by up to 1000 mm without the use of tools.

Safe and productive - the Format-4 power feeder

Safe and productive - the Format-4 power feeder



A power feeder increases the safety and comfort when planing without reducing the planing width. The constant, steady pressure ensures an absolute symmetrical planing finish.
