The Newman EPR Electric Series Double Roughing Planers provide state-of-the-art technology backed by the world’s most experienced planer manufacturer. Newman’s new EPR Series Planers feature electric feed drive. Additional innovative features include an improved locking mechanism for the cutterhead leveling system, and redesigned bottom cutterhead dust collection.
The benefits of the new, environmentally friendly EPR Series Planers include precision feed roll synchronization, extended tire life, superior feeding, precision grinding and jointing, new digital thickness indicator, and reduced maintenance.
The EPR Series Double Roughing Planers are designed specifically for surfacing rough lumber in board lengths. Planing in long lengths helps cut-off saw operators to see defects more accurately, therefore making better decisions, resulting in increased yield. The minimization of snipe and other machining defects also contributes to increased yield. Planing in long lengths provides maximum productivity at high feed speeds.
Newman Helical Carbide Cutterheads provide extended knife life and low maintenance at reduced noise levels. Our exclusive Automatic Cut Control™ (A.C.C.) is the answer to “scant” lumber planing as it is designed to prevent thin boards from being planed to less than target size. Combining these features on any EPR Series Planer guarantees maximum yield at the absolute minimum operating costs.
