Four Sided Planer/Moulder : The Ultimate Guide

Four Sided Planer/Moulder

Four sided planer is a kind of woodworking machine tool planer products. Mainly used for processing wood square, wooden board, decorative wood lines, wood flooring and other wood products, the upper and lower sides of the wood planing treatment.

Excellent four – sided planer is generally compact, hard – plated work surface, durable. And spindle special processing, high precision. Feeding system, it is best to use stepless speed regulating mechanism, feeding roller and decelerating mechanism with universal joint transmission, in order to smooth transmission, feeding can be strong.

Application of Four Sided Planer/Moulder

Four sided planer according to industry habits is divided into 4 Axis Four Side Planer, 5 Axis Four Side Planer, 6 Axis Four Side Planer…… more than 10 axes. Four-sided planer is generally suitable for large and medium-sized furniture factories. On the one hand, the purchase cost is higher, and on the other hand, the tool adjustment is troublesome, so it is suitable for large and medium-sized enterprises’ mass production or fixed process station production.

Small businesses often use double-sided planer processing two main surfaces, with vertical planer or other planer processing two sides, in order to save costs and shorten the time to adjust the tool.

Four-sided planer production capacity is strong, such as medium six-axis four-sided planer one hour can process more than two sides, its efficiency is more recognized in the industry.

Setting Up Your Four-Sided Planer

Before you begin operating your four-sided planer, it’s important to review the setup process first. This includes ensuring that you have the right supplies and safety gear – such as protective eyewear and hearing protection – and adjusting the planer bed according to your needs. Additionally, double-check that your blades are sharpened correctly and at the correct angle before you start working.

Operating Your Four-Sided Planer

Before you turn the planer on and start cutting, take a moment to study your mental blueprint of the project. Picture in your mind how the finished product would be shaped and what parts will require special attention or extra care during production. This way, when you begin operating the planer, you’ll have an idea of what adjustments may need to be made along the way.

It’s also essential that you check your work often as mistakes can easily occur with planers if they are not continually monitored.

Maintaining Your Four-Sided Planer

Regular maintenance of your four-sided planer is key for guaranteeing successful and long-lasting results. Make sure to check the planers blades every time before you work with them by gauging their sharpness, checking for any bent or chipped pieces, and ensuring that all pieces are securely fastened to the machine. With proper maintenance and treatment, your four-sided planer should provide years of reliable service!

Troubleshooting Common Issues with Four-Sided Planers

From time to time, you may encounter some issues when using a four-sided planer. These can include blades becoming dull or chipped, problems with the motor, or loose bolts and screws. Fortunately, there are some troubleshooting steps that you can take to help fix common problems. Make sure that you familiarize yourself with your machine’s user manual before attempting any repairs so that you can properly identify and address the issue!

Getting the Most Out of Your Four-Sided Planer Projects

Getting the most out of your four-sided planer starts with proper setup. To ensure accuracy, you should always adjust your machine according to the material that you’re working on and use the right blades for the job. Additionally, make sure that you check the alignment of your rollers and check that all bolts are tight. Regular cleaning and lubrication can also go a long way in helping you get maximum performance from your tool!

How to choose a suitable four-sided planer?

When choosing a four-sided planer, it is nothing more than selecting the number of tool axes and the adjustment position between the tool axes. Generally, it should be based on the shape of the workpiece to be processed, the batch size, the positioning during feeding, the determination of the processing benchmark and the convenience of the workpiece through the tool axis. degree and other factors. There is no definite principle for the selection of the four-sided planer due to the changes in the environment used and the types of workpieces to be processed.

When selecting a machine tool, it is necessary to consider a main processing direction, take into account the processing requirements of other directions, make overall arrangements, comprehensively consider technical requirements and capital investment, and reasonably select a certain type of machine tool to meet the most processing needs, the smallest Expenses, the most simple and convenient operation and maintenance as the principle.

2.Select the processing capacity of the machine tool according to the possible processing batches.

The processing capacity of the machine tool mainly depends on the feed rate of the machine tool, the rotational speed of the tool shaft and the cutting power. In general, when the feed rate is high, the cutting amount, that is, the width and thickness of the cutting, should be small, and the rotational speed of the cutter shaft should be increased.

When the feed rate is low, the cutting amount can be appropriately increased, and the rotational speed of the cutter shaft can be correspondingly reduced to meet the requirements of motor power. But the speed should not be too low, otherwise it will affect the quality of the machined surface. Within the allowable range of mechanical strength and stiffness, the higher the rotational speed of the machine tool spindle, the better the quality of the machined surface.

(3) Determine the mutual position and feeding method between the tool axes of the machine tool according to the size specifications and accuracy requirements of the workpiece to be processed.

The maximum width dimension of the workpiece that can be processed by the four-sided planer is the main parameter of the machine tool. The section size, width and height (thickness) of the workpiece determine the limit range of adjustment between the upper and lower horizontal tool axes and the left and right vertical tool axes of the four-sided planer. , and the adjustment and positioning accuracy of the tool axis.

Generally, each tool axis of the machine tool should not be in the limit position of its adjustable range, and a certain margin should be left, otherwise the machining accuracy will be affected. Different feeding methods will affect the positioning and pressing of the workpiece during machining, thereby affecting the machining accuracy of the workpiece. Under normal circumstances, for thin and long workpieces with poor rigidity, the pressing force of each pinch roller of the feeding mechanism is smaller, and the pinch rollers are correspondingly more.

For workpieces with good rigidity such as short square materials, the pressure of each pressing roller of the feeding mechanism can be large, and the pressing roller can also be reduced accordingly.
