Auto Double Planer

Whatsapp Order

An auto double planer, also known as an automatic double planer, is a woodworking machine used to smooth and dimension lumber or boards. It typically consists of two planning heads arranged one after the other in the machine. The machine automatically feeds the lumber through both planning heads, resulting in double-sided planning in a single pass. This process ensures uniform thickness and smoothness on both sides of the lumber or board, enhancing efficiency and precision in woodworking tasks. Auto double planers are commonly employed in large-scale woodworking operations such as lumber mills, furniture manufacturing, and carpentry workshops.


Auto Double Planer Uses

  1. Lumber Processing: Auto double planers are extensively used in lumber mills for processing rough-sawn lumber. They can efficiently plane both sides of the lumber simultaneously, ensuring uniform thickness and smooth surfaces, which are essential for further processing or finishing.
  2. Furniture Manufacturing: In furniture manufacturing, auto double planers are employed to prepare wood components for furniture pieces. They can dimension and smooth large panels or individual pieces with precision, facilitating the production of high-quality furniture.
  3. Cabinet Making: Cabinet makers use auto double planers to plane and dimension wood panels for constructing cabinets and other cabinetry components. The machine ensures consistent thickness and smooth surfaces, which are crucial for achieving precise fits and finishes in cabinetry projects.
  4. Flooring Production: Manufacturers of hardwood flooring often utilize auto double planers to process rough lumber into flooring planks. The machine ensures that both sides of the planks are uniformly planed, resulting in high-quality flooring products with smooth surfaces and consistent thickness.
  5. Millwork and Molding Production: Auto double planers are employed in the production of millwork and moldings, such as baseboards, crown moldings, and door frames. They can efficiently plane and dimension lumber or stock material to the required specifications for producing various architectural and decorative elements.
  6. Joinery and Carpentry: Joiners and carpenters use auto double planers to prepare wood components for joinery work, such as creating precise joints and fittings in woodworking projects. The machine ensures that the wood pieces have uniform thickness and smooth surfaces, facilitating accurate assembly and finishing.
  7. Custom Woodworking: Auto double planers are also utilized in custom woodworking shops for a wide range of projects, including crafting bespoke furniture, architectural elements, and specialty wood products. The machine’s ability to efficiently plane and dimension wood stock contributes to the production of high-quality custom pieces.

Safety precautions

  1. Read the Manual: Familiarize yourself with the operation and safety instructions provided by the manufacturer. This will help you understand how to operate the machine correctly and safely.
  2. Wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE):
    • Safety goggles: Protect your eyes from flying debris.
    • Ear protection: Reduce exposure to loud noise generated by the machine.
    • Dust mask or respirator: Prevent inhalation of wood dust.
  3. Inspect the Machine: Before using the auto double planer, inspect it for any damage, loose parts, or foreign objects that could interfere with its operation. Ensure all safety guards are in place and functioning properly.
  4. Secure Workpieces: Always securely clamp down or hold your workpieces firmly in place to prevent them from shifting or getting caught in the machine during operation.
  5. Adjust Cutter Depth: Set the cutter depth according to the thickness of the material being planed. Avoid taking too deep a cut, as it can strain the machine and increase the risk of kickback.
  6. Keep Hands Clear: Never place your hands near the cutter head while the machine is in operation. Use push sticks or push blocks to feed the material through the planer, keeping your hands a safe distance away from the cutting area.
  7. Avoid Loose Clothing and Jewelry: Wear fitted clothing and remove any loose items such as jewelry or ties that could get caught in the machine.
  8. Maintain a Clean Workspace: Keep the area around the machine clear of clutter and debris to prevent tripping hazards and ensure proper ventilation to minimize the buildup of wood dust.
  9. Use Proper Feeding Technique: Feed the material into the planer slowly and evenly to maintain control and prevent kickback. Do not force the material through the machine.
  10. Turn off the Machine When Not in Use: Always turn off the auto double planer and wait for it to come to a complete stop before making any adjustments, cleaning, or performing maintenance.
  11. Disconnect Power Source: When performing maintenance or changing blades, unplug the machine or turn off its power source to prevent accidental start-ups.

Training and Supervision: Ensure that operators are adequately trained in the safe operation of the auto double planer and supervise them, especially if they are new to using the machine
