The Leitz VariPlan Plus Planerhead, an IWF 2012 Challengers Award entry, is an adaptation of the VariPlan planerhead designed for the moulder/planing market. Using the RipTec knife technology for pre-planing or integrating with smooth knives, VariPlan Plus is designed to increase the smoothness of rustic and difficult-to-machine woods, while decreasing the prevalence of chipping, says the company. Solid HS or carbide knives are reversible and can be sharpened up to six times without changing diameter and knife changes are quick, easy, repeatable and accurate, says the company. VariPlan Plus is available in standard Z2 or Z4 configurations, with lengths from 100mm to 310mm and various diameter and bore dimensions, including HSK85W, for most machines. Leitz will be in booths #7534 and #7544 at IWF 2012.
