50’ Beam Planer
This 50 foot long lumber planer’s final assembly was completed in our shop. The majority of the components are custom made and produced on CNC equipment running Mach4. The machine is an original design. Its purpose is to plane Redwood beams that are 25” x 25” x 45 feet long. Where a typical planer uses feed rolls that move the lumber, this planer has a moving top and side head to produce perfectly square beams of massive size and beauty. The Redwood is being recovered from trees that were cut many decades ago on the west coast of the United States.
The machine was purchased by a lumber mill from Innovative Industries / River Valley Machinery Inc. who sell standard machinery and machines designed from the ground up.
