Wood-Mizer introduces MP220 – a revolutionary concept

Published on :Tuesday, August 10, 2021

The Wood-Mizer MP220 woodworking machine efficiently combines three operations – moulding, planing, and ripsawing – in one unit, saving time and reducing costs for sawyers and carpenters. The MP220 Moulder/Planer/Ripsaw is engineered for producing quarter rounds, floor decking, panels, crown mouldings with less time and costs.

Featuring a horizontal cutterhead and a single circular blade, ripsawing and planing on the MP220 can be done in one pass. The cutting knives provide the maximum depth of moulding at 20 mm with maximum planing dimensions of 240 mm high and 410 mm wide (with the ripsaw blade removed). 

The top cover hides the ripsaw blade for safety, and the operator can easily adjust it. With a maximum ripsawing height of 75 mm, feeding material on a stainless-steel table is smooth and secure.  There is a control unit over the feed table, allowing for easy operation of the MP220 machine. The ergonomic hand crank allows setting the thickness of planning/moulding by adjusting the height of the cast iron table. A ledger helps to position the material for ripsawing.

Two electrical motors (3,2 kW/4,4 HP) provide a rotation speed of 6000 rpm, ensuring a smooth surface on the final products while consuming little energy and generating less noise.  The MP220 machine has a fixed feed speed of 5 m/min (ECO version) or a variable feed speed of 2-12 m/min (PRO version).

Two sawdust extraction ports on top of the cover and one under the cast iron table, help keep the work area clean. Lightweight (195 kg) and compact, the MP220 can be equipped with transportation wheels to quickly move the machine and install it conveniently in the workplace. Wood-Mizer supports a wide selection of profile knives, ripsaw blades, and other valuable products for woodworking machines produced by the company.

With ease of use, affordable price, and two-year warranty, the MP220 multi-purpose woodworking machine optimally fits the needs of sawyers and carpenters who want to diversify their product range and increase value for a final wood product. The versatility makes the MP220 a must-have in every woodworking and carpentry shop.
