Wood-Mizer Introduces SlabMizer Slab Flattener for Wide Material

Wood-Mizer Introduces SlabMizer Slab Flattener for Wide Material

Developed in the USA, the SlabMizer efficiently surfaces and flattens wood slabs, boards, burls, cookies, and other wide material with minimal labor.

Compared to a traditional router or planer, the SlabMizer flattens wider and thicker material up to 1420 mm wide and 203 mm thick in less time using powered cutter head directional controls with variable feed speed. For larger capacity, 1520 mm modular table extensions can be added to extend the material length. 

Heavy-duty welded steel frame with four adjustable clamps keep material secure. Easily adjust the cutting depth by a hand crank located on the top of the cutter head.  A scale below the crank has 0,4 mm increments for precise positioning. You can take off from 0,4 mm to 3,2 mm in one pass.

The cutter head is engaged and operated by a powered control console. Using a long cable, you can place it from any side of the machine. The console is attached to a steel stand. Powered controls include on/off, variable feed speed, and a joystick direction control for the X and Y axis for finishing material with or against the grain.

You can choose to operate the cutting head manually. Using two push bars on the right side of the head, change the cutting head's position. Once both sides of the slab are surfaced, fine finishing is accomplished by using the 177 mm orbital sanding head attachment for the desired finish. Dust from the operation is easily removed with a 100 mm diameter extraction port on top of the cutter head that can be connected to a dust extraction system. Connect dust extraction hose to a boom to keep it out of the operator's view.

With the addition of the SlabMizer, Wood-Mizer offers the full range of wood processing equipment from forest to final form that can turn a log into a kiln-dried, finished wood product.
