Scorpion jointers, thickness planers and combination machines are built by CWI Woodworking Technologies to be best in class machinery with the features, performance and quality that serious woodworkers are looking for whether in the hobby, educational or industrial woodworking industries. You will find our machines to have more cast iron, better cutters, easier adjustments, longer tables and superior quality to all competitors.
The CWI-P1025HC is built for educational and commercial users looking for a big machine with big capacities but are limited to single phase power. The P1025HC has a 10 HP 220/3/60 main motor which drives a 4.75” diameter Stinger Carbide helical cutter head to machine lumber at up to 1/4” at each pass. The Stinger carbide helical cutter head has 5 rows of 15mm x 15mm x 2.5mm square four sided convex edge carbide knives for a total of 125 knives. When an edge of a knife gets dull or damaged simply remove the locking screw and rotate the knife to a new edge. We find under normal wear and tear customers will get one to two years of performance from each edge of knife. The top lid of the machine is hinged to easily lift up and out of the way to maintain knives or make adjustments to the rollers and is covered by a protective carpet.
The 5 rows of knives provide more knife cuts per inch, better overlap of the knives for less knife marks in the wood and virtually zero tear out even on the most difficult to thickness woods.
Our Stinger Carbide helical cutter heads are renowned for ease of maintenance, quality of cut, and sound levels so pleasant you almost forget the machine is running.
To feed the wood through the machine the Scorpion P1025HC has a 1 HP feed motor with a variable speed inverter with digital readout. Simply dial in the speed you need for slow fine cuts or ramp it up to over 50 feet per minute for high production work. The P1025HC planer has a sectional infeed roller system to ensure a very good grip and a dual outfeed roller set up to almost eliminate sniping issues. That’s right….two steel outfeed rollers for excellent work piece support …not just one like most competitors. For added safety anti-kickback fingers are present in front of the feed rollers.
The sectional infeed roller is very importantly for safety reasons as well as a vast increase in production capabilities over a standard one piece infeed roller. Each individual section of the infeed roller adjusts for different thicknesses of wood ensuring a firm grip on each piece of wood. This allows users to put multiple boards through the machine at a time. Traditional solid steel or rubber infeed rollers will lift to the thickness of the thicker board allowing the danger of the thinner board to be ruined or worse…thrown right out of the machine.
The Scorpion precision ground cast iron table is 25” x 41.5” of surface area which is supported by four height adjustment pillars. On the surface of the table are two adjustable table rollers to help the feeding of rough lumber. A simple hand lever adjustment is used to set the appropriate height of the rollers.
The table is operated by a push button control panel to electronically position the cast iron table to thickness boards from 5mm to 300mm (12”) thick by a ½ HP motor. Simply enter the desired height in imperial or metric measurement or press the up/down buttons to reach your desired setting. The digital read out will show feed speed as well as thickness settings.
The electrical control cabinet uses very high quality components which are CSA certified for use in schools and Canadian commercial operations. The Scorpion CWI-P1025HC 25” thickness planer is a machine built to be a work horse in any commercial environment for years of high production needs.
