The Gilbert Mass Timber Planer enters the market
Sept. 24, 2018 - Building on the success of its high-speed equipment, Gilbert has added to its product line a planer for mass timber lumber.
Built to the same high-quality standards which established its reputation for its planing equipment, the Mass Timber Planer was designed to meet the high expectations of the engineered wood industry for the production of glulam timber, CLT timber and all types of beams.
The equipment has a heavy-duty frame and is designed to plane mass timber up to a thickness of 16 inches and a width of 36 inches. Furthermore, the Gilbert Automatic Positioning System which controls the cutterheads and axes ensures optimal operating precision allowing for the production of high-quality lumber.
