The Nova F 520 is a heavy duty, long bed 20” jointer designed to meet the needs of the most demanding environments. It features cast iron tables, tilting fence and breakthrough XYLENT technology. This technology gives an exacting finish while reducing ambient noise decibel output significantly.
Extra Long Cast Iron Tables
All SCM Jointers use aged cast iron tables that are machine polished to the highest tolerances. These castings are ribbed to ensure maximum strength and to avoid problems with the tables warping or breaking during use. The longer tables ensure board straightness. You table is over 108 inches to make sure that the workpiece will be straight every time.
Parallelogram Table Movement
All SCM Jointers incorporate a parallelogram movement of the infeed and outfeed tables. This system has the table height adjustment through a system of four cams (one per corner of support) that pivot on a radius equal to the head radius. This radius pivot ensures that the table chip breaker remains in the correct position from the head. Some manufacturers use a wedge type movement which allows the table and chip breaker to move away from the head as it is adjusted for more removal. This will allow splintering and poor quality finish.
Xylent Maintenance Kit
This kit was designed to help you get the most out of your new XYLENT cutterhead. With this kit you get one cleaning/degreasing liquid bottle for helping reduce resinous wood coatings. You will also get one dynamometric key set to 5.7 mm, two bit Torx T20, ten inserts of 15x15x2.5mm, five M6x15 T20 screws, one brass bristle brush to clean the spindle with the mounted inserts and one steel bristle brush to help clean out the insert housings. All in a beautiful and functional hardback case.
American Cutterhead Guard
The standard guard offered on SCM Jointers is a spring-type guard which always covers the unused portion of the knife. Other European style guards require the guard to be manually moved into place when the fence is readjusted. When processing thick wood, this does not cover the blade as completely.
Note: The European guard and additional overturning fence attachment do not come standard on the Nova F 520. The Nova F 520 comes standard with an American guard (pictured above) and fence that meet OSHA requirements.
Precision that Lasts a Lifetime without Noise with the system on connecting rods.
The system guarantees the maximum movement fluidity and avoids deformations of the work table. This guarantees maximum stability, reliability and ergonomics.
Total Absence of Vibration thanks to the large worktables made from ribbed cast-iron.
Exceptional Finish with the “Xylent” Spiral Knife (3 spiral knives)
Reduced noise during machining provides a more comfortable working environment. It also improves the dust extraction due to the production of very small chips. Each cutter has 4 tips which can be rotated into the cutting position when worn. Therefore increasing the production life of the cutter block before knives require replacement.
