Finding the Perfect Wide Belt Sander for Your Application
Whether you specialize in producing doors, cabinets, metal parts or any other type of product, determining which sander is right for the job can be exceptionally challenging. After all, there are thousands of sanding machines at your disposal, and many of these models can be outfitted with a variety of different head types and abrasives to achieve specific results. Moreover, each type of substrate has unique properties that can have unexpected results when automating the sanding process, meaning that a sander that works beautifully for one product might damage or destroy another.

Wide Belt Sanders for the Woodworking Industry
Wide belt sanders are some of the most popular woodworking machines on the market. They’re designed to remove material from the top of wooden pieces until they reach a specified finish and thickness. These machines can be used with solid wood materials and composite boards (like plywood). Here are a few models of wide belt sanders that we offer and which types of products they work well with.

2. The 2300 Series Wide Belt
Our 2300 Series machines are durable workhorses that feature 75” or 103” abrasive belts for longer abrasive belt lives. They can be used for wide belt sanding and calibrating or finish sanding. Most importantly, the 2300 Series can be outfitted with up to four heads (either drum or combination heads), making them ideal for a number of woodworking projects. This line is perfect for use in mid-sized cabinet, millwork and furniture plants.
3. The 3300 Series Wide Belt
If you need a wide belt sanding machine that offers maximum performance during heavy use, then look no further than the 3300 Series.
