Sanding of workpieces to a pre-set thickness, while simultaneously eliminating all irregularities of the workpiece surface. This operation is particularly needed before applying veneer cover layers to wooden panels.
By using steel or hard rubber rollers, a dimensionally accurate workpiece thickness is reached, while, at the same time, working with high removal rates. There will be no wash-out effect of the early/late wood portions when sanding softwoods using steel rollers. The rubber hardness is given in '° Shore'.
