WOOD-MIZER RELEASES NEW TWO-IN-ONE MP160 PLANER/THICKNESSER FOR WORKSHOPS


Wood-Mizer has released the MP160 planer and thicknesser, new two-in-one machine to produce straight & square, accurately dimensioned boards. Efficient and compact, the MP160 changes bowed or cupped rough sawn timber into perfectly planed boards. 

The MP160 shares one horizontal cutter between two cast iron tables – the upper table for planing and the lower table for thicknessing. No machine adjustments are needed to switch between planning and thicknessing. Just switch between the two functions easily without stopping the cutter or extractor. Start by using the top table for planing – making two adjoining sides perfectly flat and at a precise right angle to each other. Then use the bottom table for thicknessing the last two sides to be parallel to the first two, thicknessing the board to its final dimensions. 

A safety guard keeps operator’s hands safe during planing. The board fence tilts up to 45 degrees for jointing angled boards. The top and bottom tables can be adjusted as needed, and the infeed and outfeed tables always remain parallel to each other. The outfeed table can be fine-adjusted. Two power rollers pull boards under the cutter. The power feed has an industrial gearbox.

Top Features:
• 4 step process to produce square & straight material 
• For producers of furniture, windows, doors and more.
• Use jointer & planer without any setup between modes

“The MP160 Planer/Thicknesser is what every workshop needs,” Said Robert Baginski, Wood-Mizer Industries President. “With this compact and efficient planer/thicknesser used in combination with a Wood-Mizer sawmill, our customers can easily produce furniture-grade timber on their own”. 

The MP160 was manufactured by the Swedish company MOReTENs AB since 1980. In 2018 Wood-Mizer acquired MOReTENs AB, expanding Wood-Mizer’s reputation as a worldwide manufacturer of equipment that can seamlessly convert logs into timber and into finished wood products.
