It’s getting harder and harder to find quality combination machines. The SCM minimax line does not disappoint! All of their combination machines share the same technology of their stand alone machines. All of these are built in house by SCM. They own both their own state of the art foundry and machine shop. This allows them to control quality from start to finish.

Did we mention the fast change over times?

Perfect finishing
The planer unit stands on cast iron supports and the standard version has a 87 mm diameter cutter block with 3 knives. (The optional “Tersa” cutter block is available with 4 quick tightening knives and automatic adjustment). For an impeccable finish, the pressureof the thicknesser feed rollers can be adjusted according to the type of wood machined. The infeed roller has a helicoidal profile to guarantee firm and constant work piece feed, while the outfeed roller, in sandblasted steel, maintains the perfect post-processing finishing.

Planing fence
The fs 41e uses a dedicated planing fence extremely rigid and smooth, thanks to a support with central round bar.

“Xylent” spiral knife cutter block with 3 series of knives
The 3 spiral knives give an exceptional finish. Reduced noise during machining provides a more comfortable working environment. It also improves the dust extraction due to the production of very small chips. Each cutter has 4 tips which can be rotated into the cutting position when worn. Therefore increasing the production life of the cutter block before knives require replacement.
