Veneer Lathe R7 - high-quality peel from all raw materials

Produce strong, high-quality veneer with an automated lathe designed to peel all hardwood and softwood materials with precision. Our robust Veneer Lathe R7 has a solid, vibration-free construction and it peels even heavier hardwood blocks with ease. The modular structure of the lathe provides flexibility for peeling 3-11 ft long blocks up to 1.2 m in diameter. 

The lathe’s optimal peeling geometry (OPG) maximizes veneer quality. Its high-speed spindles and powered, position controlled back-up rolls​ minimize spinouts maintaining high veneer quality. The lathe knife carriage can be equipped with roller or fixed nose bar based on your needs. 

Use a touch-screen user interface in your own language​ to change lathe settings. Utilize peeling speeds up to 360 m/min with an accurate knife carriage feed that minimizes veneer thickness deviation. You may even adjust veneer thickness on the fly without stopping the feed. 

Critical areas of the lathe are equipped with automatic lubrication to ensure reliable operation.
