SCM S520 Nova Thicknesser


With a practical yet robust design, the SCM S520 Nova Thicknesser provides simple and precise operation with flexibility in the range of applications that can be used with it.

Featuring interchangeable rollers that have quick and easy changeover procedures that allow for the operator to have a greater degree of control and more flexibility when it comes to handling special or more complex requirements. The need for locking in position has been eliminated thanks to the 4 screws with a large diameter combined with the 2 side linear guides. Each of these features combines to give a significant stability boost to the worktable.

Outputting an exceptional finish, the “Xilent” spiral knife also has reduced noise – making for a more comfortable, less obtrusive working environment. Also adding to a more environmentally friendly, less pollutive and healthier workplace is the improved dust extraction via the small chips.
