Sanding belts, which grind diagonal to the feed direction of the workpiece, always in connection with a sanding pad and often with a chevron belt between sanding pad and sanding belt. The counterpart is the commonly used lengthwise sanding aggregate, where the sanding belt runs parallel to the feed direction of the workpiece.


  • The surface is sanded completely uniform, the softer spring wood will not be ground out more than the harder late wood.
  • Fibers are sheared off and not only bend over.
  • Glue penetrations, paper tapes and hot melt glues are evenly distributed on the cross-belt and protect the expensive wide belts.


Frequently, two cross sanding units are inserted into one machine:

  • crosswise/lengthwise/lengthwise/crosswise as universal machine
  • crosswise/lengthwise/crosswise/lengthwise for the MDF-workpiece's preparation before the coating with foil
  • crosswise/crosswise/lengthwise/lengthwise

Alternative terms

  • Cross-sanding
  • Cross-sanding aggregate
  • Cross sanding unit
  • Cross-sanding element
