Ph: 616/698-7010

An adaptation of the VariPlan planerhead, the VariPlan Plus is designed to bring the advantages of RipTec technology, including increased quality and decreased waste, to the broad-based moulder/planing market. Using the Leitz Tooling Systems' knife technology for pre-planing or integrating with smooth knives, the tooling increases the smoothness of rustic and even difficult-to-machine woods, while decreasing the prevalence of chipping, the supplier reports. Solid HS or carbide knives are reversible and can be sharpened up to six times without changing diameter. Knife changes are also said to be quick, easy, repeatable and exceptionally accurate.
