Thicknesser D 963 c-tech

Scope of application

Planes (almost) everything: FELDER D 963 c-tech -The thickness planer for plastic and composite materials

Felder's new D 963 c-tech thicknesser machine is a real expert in the processing of plastics and composite materials. Power, stability and ease of use at the highest level paired with special c-tech special equipment for the highest demands:

On the basis of the legendary spiral blade cutterblock Silent-Power®, a special cutting geometry has been developed which guarantees perfect planing results for plastics. The rubberised in- and outfeed rollers allow gentle workpiece transport of particularly sensitive surfaces. Also, the adjusted feed speed from 2 to 8 m/min and the maximum chip removal of 3 mm were specially designed to meet the high demands of modern plastics processing.

When aiming for gentle and careful workpiece processing, the thicknesser with 630 mm planing width has nevertheless remained a powerhouse in terms of performance and precision. Large-sized, heavy-duty precision components convince with first-class workmanship, maximum precision and durability. Proven Felder system components such as the massive thicknesser table and the four trapezoid threaded spindles combine the D 963 c-tech into a completely new dimension of the quality of the planing result in plastics.

The "Digi-Drive" control guarantees maximum ease of use: enter the desired dimension, press start and the thicknesser table adjusts exactly to the position you require. LED displays for the required and actual value. Additional functions: incremental adjustments, 4 programmable thicknessing table positions. Professional machine operators from small and big workshops all the way through to industry profit from perfect jointing results.

FELDER. Quality and precision in a nutshell

Since 1956, a guarantee for perfect results with excellent ease of use and reliability in regular professional use. Woodworkers are always enthusiastic about the individual and solid solutions for small and mid-sized businesses.

On the basis of the legendary spiral blade cutterblock Silent-Power®, a special cutting geometry has been developed which guarantees perfect planing results for plastics.


Exclusive for planer/thicknessers from the Felder Group. The Silent-Power® spiral cutterblock reduces noise emissions by more than half when planing. The continuous pulling cut ensures tear-free results when planing all types of wood. With this revolutionary new development from Format4 you are obtaining all of the advantages of a spiral cutterblock at considerably lower operating, investment and adjustment costs. The advantages of the Silent-Power® cutterblock at a glance ...

  • Extremely quiet, noise is reduced by half
  • Usable blade life twenty times longer than standard blades
  • Four highly precise cutting edges on each knife
  • Optimised chip extraction and reduced chip volume
  • Tear-free planing results
  • Reduced power consumption when compared to similar systems

The solid cast iron cutterblock housing is built for heavy duty work. We can also provide rubber outfeed rollers as an option. The pressure beams combined with the rubber or segmented infeed roller serve to machine simultaneously workpieces of differing width.

A recommended option when planing with a small depth of cut, with very thin workpieces or workpieces with varying thicknesses.

Regardless of the type of wood and grain, the variable feed speed of between 2-8 m/min always guarantees a perfect thicknessing result.

Enter the required dimension, press Start and the thicknesser table will move precisely to the required position. Set and actual values are displayed on LED displays. Additional optional functions, such as incremental position and four programmable thicknesser table positions are available.
2 spring-loaded pressure bars prevent “fluttering” of very thin workpieces whilst thicknessing.
An optional 1150 mm adjustable height scissor table is available
When thicknessing several workpieces at once, the 570 mm long table extension with workpiece roller situated on the outfeed is of particular importance, making it easier to remove them once thicknessed.
