The MP280 planer/moulder makes a perfect solution for medium and large woodworking companies that want to supply their customers with premium wood products, such as floorboards, sidings, panels, door and window frames, decorative elements, and more.
The MP280 is equipped with an intuitive control panel with the switches engaging all motors and the feed mechanism separately, allowing for lower energy consumption and noise emission. The 13,78 kW electric motors drive the cutter heads at 6000 rpm, ensuring the best possible finish of the board surface.
The MP280 features two horizontal cutter heads – the top shaft with a length of 410 mm and a diameter of 88 mm, while the bottom one 300 mm x 72 mm, and two side cutterheads (one in a fixed position and one moveable), which mould the material with a maximum height of 100 mm. Increased efficiency is possible due to 4-sided cutting in just one pass through the machine.
The feed mechanism has been incorporated from the bigger MP360 unit and comes with a variable speed of 3-15 m/min. The material feeds in and out of the machine on the 1,2m tables with protective steel curtains installed over the infeed entrance to prevent material throwback.
There are four sawdust exhaust ports – one with a diameter of 125 mm and three with 100 mm – and additional covers and brushes installed inside the machine to drive out the waste material from around the cutter heads as efficiently as possible. The MP280 planer/moulder is compatible with the Wood-Mizer MES dust extraction systems, which have been designed to keep the workplace clean and tidy.
