Weinig has moved into a new dimension of large-dimension joinery with its Hydromat 45 Planing Machine, designed for architectural woodwork projects. The Hydromat 45 is Weinig’s new, entry-level planer for four-sided planing of cross-laminated timber and laminated wood. It features floating vertical spindles that follow the wood’s contours, producing clean surfaces. Horizontal spindles allow axial range adjustment up to 200 millimetres. Spindle speed 6,000 rpm. The Hydromat 45’s pillar-supported feed system ensures smooth movement of material through the planer, resulting in high surface quality and less waste. Accommodates large boards from 60 to 450 millimetres wide; working height 20 to 220 millimetres. Touch-screen control.
