Felder’s new FW 850 classic wide belt sander combines professional surface finishing with particularly compact dimensions. In this way, it is said to provide performance and flexibility at an unprecedented price-performance ratio.
Classic surface finishing as the focus!
The furniture industry with modernised production techniques has set a standard that is almost unachievable for small joinery and carpentery shops. In order for smaller shops to remain competitive they must ensure that every workpiece is processed perfectly at every step of production. The Felder FW 850 classic wide belt sander makes it affordable to take that next step into professional woodworking and it is this high quality standard configuration that particularly impresses.
With the wide belt sanding machines of the FW series, Felder provides independent carpenters and joiners with targeted solutions for staying competitive – because the furniture industry, with its modern processing techniques, is setting the bar ever higher for the craft. In order to remain competitive, the results of manual production must also appear professional and as perfect as possible in all work steps. Thanks to fair conditions, the Felder wide belt sanders of the FW series are intended to facilitate the entry into professional woodworking and impress with high-quality system solutions even in the standard equipment. The FW 850 classic, the latest addition to the FW family, not only combines all the advantages of a full-blown wide belt sander – despite its compact dimensions – but also adds one or two special features. For example, the clearly structured control panels virtually invite intuitive control of the machine and thus increase productivity. In addition to the basic functions, the control system also allows settings and fine adjustments down to the tenth of a millimeter.
During operation, the intelligent sanding belt system permanently scans the belt run and activates the electro-pneumatic sanding belt control, which oscillates the sanding belt back and forth. If the sanding belt runs out, the belt run control reacts immediately and stops the sanding belt motor. The precise combination sanding unit has a drum diameter of 90 millimeters and is used in solid wood processing primarily for calibration work. The electro-pneumatic sanding pad presses gently and evenly on the workpiece surface, so that even veneered workpieces can be processed without the risk of being “sanded through”.
