Rex 4-Sided Planers

Automatic Timber Planing Machines - Made in Germany

For accurate sizing of timbers, Glulam, LVL, plastics, soft metal. Straight or curved material. Even tapered shapes can be planed, CNC controlled, up to 10 feet wide.

Whether you make domes, arches, bridges, trusses, rafters, or straight beams, REX planers are your answer, at whatever production speed your plants operate at.

REX can supply planers and production accessories for complete factory processing.

Choose from four series:

  • SuperMaster (top of the line, highest industrial production, often custom designed for specific applications)
  • Big-or BrushMaster (for high-volume, multi-shift production)
  • TimberMaster (the machine for commercial, single shift production)
  • SpeedMaster (the machine for planing dimensional lumber all day and night)

Each series is designed for specific duty-cycles, while maintaining the absolute top surface finish quality, at their rated speed.

They can be configured very much the same way, starting with 2 working shafts, and can each be expanded to more than 12 working shafts.

The key differences between the four models are feed and head systems, which determine how fast the machines can process, producing consistent surface finish quality of timber products, subject to the speed of other complementary production lines.

blade drumsREX four-sided planers can solve profiling applications by calibrating first with the horizontal cutter heads, then adding multiple spindles to achieve the desired profiling process. This assures, evenly powered, highest surface finish quality for any application. No more jamming the machine with underpowered motor systems!

REX planers include specialty design, such as adjustable upper unit thicknesser for timber and plastic. Even metal can be surface processed with Rex machines, but the company really makes its mark with these timber systems.

REX planers use a cardanic drive shaft system that feeds even wet and frozen wood. Interchangeable tool systems (cone or hydraulic tensioning, reversible blade and spiral systems) make re-fitting, replacement, and maintenance fast and efficient, reducing downtime, for very high production.
