Machine bed

The machine bed is of thick steel with strongly ribbed structure and monobloc steel supporting base. The sturdiness and weight of base reduces vibrations to a minimum as well as guaranteeing life-long constant high quality performance. Especially with the heavy-duty precision cast iron motor mounts mounted to the machine base


The infeed worktable has a parallelogram system vertical adjustment.  Worktables are of wear resistant special cast iron with low friction coefficient and are equipped with inserts in front of the vertical spindles. The table plates are separate from the vertical dovetail slide-ways providing a better reference and wearing area.


Width of the right infeed fence is adjusted by a parallelogram system with readout in fraction scale. Pre-straightening is carried out by a reference engraver (tool excluded) on first bottom planer spindle. The right fences are easily adjustable to the tooling cutting circle. 


The spindles are hardened to avoid wear and are fitted with a pair of precision matched bearings on the spindle. The 120-mm (4.750”) diameter steel spindle cylinder ensures maximum stiffness and precision even during heavy duty machining. The maximum working width of 9.055” is supported by an 11.500” length spindle housing insuring stability for wider profile widths. Other companies provide shorter housing lengths than the actual spindle length.

Feed system

The beam, which supports the feed system (Total of 2), is powered by a lifting motor, which is combined with the top horizontal spindle. The beam automatically sets itself to any new tooling diameter. Feed rollers are driven by a set of hardened gears with oil bath lubrication (rear end) and universal drive joints, guaranteeing maximum reliability and constant feed even during heavy duty machining. The feed rollers are pneumatically pressurized with triple circuit control (roller before planer, between planer and top horizontal spindle and after top horizontal spindle) enabling optimal feed in accordance with the workpiece to be processed. Feed speed is continuously adjustable from the operator’s position through variable speed gear.  A powered bed roller on the outfeed table further improves feed when dealing with particular operations. Spindles and feed rollers are of steel with hardened chromed surfaces with optimum penetration through the wood.

Positioning of head units

The adjustment of head units is controlled from the front of the machine with mechanical decimal readouts for each spindle adjustment (radial and axial) to .001”. The readout display of workpiece width and thickness section is done by mechanical decimal indicators are placed on the front side of the machine. These are separate from the other readouts, providing a high accuracy of the wood width and thickness position of the left and top spindle.

"SET UP" quick tool setting system

This is a patented unique SCM system, which ensures maximum rapidity and simplicity in setting-up one profile to the next profile.

All spindles are fitted with "SET UP", the quick set-up system which enables most of the machine elements to be set in only one movement; Just set the minimum diameter of the tool (when dealing with a top horizontal spindle). The tool, working thickness, front and rear pressures and feed rollers are simultaneously adjusted. Only SCM has this Patent feature to increase productivity and eliminate downtime. Other companies require 4-6 different adjustments to SCM’S 1 adjustment! Your running product ($$$) before they even can finish the tool set-up!

Ergonomics and Sound Enclosure

All the controls are placed on the front side of the machine in an optimal position for easy access and use. The integral safety enclosure reduces noise and dust, guaranteeing a full view of the machine at the same time. The entire sound enclosure is of heavy steel with sound insert padding to reduce the noise level to CE standards and provide a safety barrier.
