Gilbert

Gilbert Products Inc. is the market leader in the design and manufacture of planing equipment.

Their robotic and CNC workshop produce planers of incredible precision as is needed for today's demands of reliability and performance.

Gilbert is known to have produced the world’s fastest planer, but it was their desire to produce a planer with extreme high precision and innovation that resulted in previously unknown speeds and ease of setup.

 

Brushcutter-Mower

Gilbert Canada have released their new GM Series of grader-mowers, brush cutter heads that attach to the side of a grader for roadside maintenance.This head is well suited to forestry and municipal roads. The patented concept cuts vegetation as opposed to mulching it.

This is a more productive operation with speeds four times faster than other application and 10 times lower operating costs. This allows the user to cover more mileage with the same or even less budget.

The GM-10 model has a cutting width of 8.5 ft (2.6 m) using five saw blades. It can cut stems up to 8 inch (20 cm) diameter at an average travel speed of 6 km per hour. Since the graders are often under-utilized, the head can be installed on most graders using the standard hydraulic and fixing points for easy fitment and removal. The power needs of the GM-10 are easily provided by the grader without affecting its performance.

The GM Series is available in various cutting sizes with several options. Fast and productive, this is the ideal solution for roadside maintenance.

Planer Mills


From pack unloading through planing to sorting, grading, packaging and strapping, we have some fantastic and innovative solutions.

From our own resources and from our partners, we can offer high speed, super accurate planing solutions, for instance with the Gilbert High Speed planer that runs with a gap.

And there are labour saving packing lines, like the amazing DO2 packaging line, that can prepare a finished pack every minute without an operator on the line.

 

 

Compact Planer


The new Gilbert 6 Roll Planer requires up to 50% less space than a conventional planer. The Compact Planer still utilises the successful Pull-Through technology like the other great Gilbert Planers.

The planer runs with a gap between each piece of wood, ensuring every piece of wood is dragged through independently, regardless of the space between each piece. Consequently, jams caused between 2 pieces of wood are avoided.

Other features:

  • Unique and innovative in design – a push of a button opens the machine up and re-sets it to exact position, no re-measuring of boards
  • Sturdy modular frame
  • No need for a long bridge
  • Easily maintained, all electric, CNC positioning
  • High feed speed of up to 700 MPM
  • High productivity (95% and more)
  • Rapid return on your investment
  • Improves production
  • Keeps planing visible

Infeed Tables

The Gilbert Infeed Table is powered by heavy dutydrive shafts and gear belts to ensure continuous low maintenance timber feed to the planer.

The two airbag controlled pineapples are specifically designed in a spherical form to ensure constant infeed without breaking the fibres in the wood. The bridge rolls are controlled by the same airbags.



The clever Gilbert infeed system means that wood does not have to accumulate before the pineapples but can be fed insingular format.

The Gilbert Infeed Table for planers has a high feed performance of up to 1200 meters per minute. It ensures a constant feed and can be retro-fitted on all planers.
