The Sandya 300 RCS 110 wide-belt sander from SCM Group is designed to satisfy the production and quality requirements of small woodworking shops, says the company.
With a 43” working width, the machine is ideal for shops requiring more width capacity than the standard 37”.
SCM marketing manager Max Salmi says the machine’s design was inspired by customers seeking features often available only on larger sanders.
“Items such as sealer sanding, brushes for denibbing, etc. Even larger factories that do a lot of sanding are requesting smaller machines for cell-type manufacturing and would like to see narrower width machines with lots of features that previously were not available,” says Salmi.
The Sandya 300 series, which also includes a 37” model, is available with single-head, double-head and planer/sander configurations.
The 43” model is a two-speed, variable speed unit with a motorized table height adjustment and an automatic thickness setup device, which gives the user an exact starting thickness.
Other features include digital readouts of worktable position and height, electronic belt tracking, adjustable drum and pad positions, an automatic table positioning device and two roller infeed and outfeed table extensions.
SCM also offers an exclusive digital ammeter as a standard feature, which gives the operator an immediate readout of the main motor’s power draw.
Machines in the Sandya 300 series start at $30,000.
