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