Drum Sander

A machine which encloses a sanding drum over a conveyor table used for thicknessing material.


The Drum Sander allows for the fine removal of material, which is either deemed too thin or short to safely use in the Thicknesser.

Two Reasons to Use a Drum Sander

Small Components If components are too small and delicate to be used in the Thicknesser (5mm thick x 400mm long minimum), the Drum Sander can be used to incrementally remove small amounts of material until a desired thickness is achieved.

Fine Adjustments Unlike the Thicknesser, very small amounts of material can be taken off at a time until the desired thickness is achieved.
