The quality showed in the details
Saw unit
A large structure, an hardened cast iron worktable and an
innovative operator unit prevent vibration to ensure excellent
finishing. Height adjustment using rounded guides ensures
smooth operation even after years of use. All controls are
located at the front of the machine for easy access and to
ensure further time savings in the preparation process.
Scoring unit adjustment
The scoring unit is moved vertically and horizontally using
a lever system to ensure the complete absence of play.
This system also enables rapid positioning thus limiting the
need for sawing tests.
Carriage
Above all the carriage must slide easily and ensure
precision and durability. Formula circular saws
are fitted with an exclusive sliding system. Sturdy
aluminium profiles with hardened steel guides
fitted using rivets enable straight line precision
of +/- 0.05 mm along the entire length of the
carriage. The result is considerable: the same
precision after years of intensive use without
maintenance.
5 year warranty

machines
Planing has always been one of the principal processes where the machining of solid wood is concerned. The basic principle
has remained the same but great advances have been made in the technology involved. Formula series planers are backed
by our long-experience in woodworking machinery and feature innovative design solutions based on simple yet effective principles. Long, ribbed cast-iron worktables. A robust cutter block unit. Precision control and adjustment mechanisms. These
are just three of the machine features designed with one thing in mind: to produce products with a high-quality finish.

Formula F1 F2 Surface planers
Both models feature long, cast-iron worktables and a large anodised
aluminium fence. An optimum high-quality finish is guaranteed even on largesize workpieces.
F2 in CE configuration
Formula F1 F2
F1 in CE configuration
The worktables are made from cast-iron and
have a ribbed structure for greater strength and
rigidity. The worktables are mounted on a parallelogram
linkage mechanism which guarantees a constant distance
between the worktable and the cutter block. This enables
quick and easy adjustment of stock removal rates.
The planer block unit is designed to guarantee a top
class finish. The cutter block has four knives and
is mounted on a heavy, cast-iron structure
providing the necessary strength, rigidity and
absence of vibration. Cutter blocks are also
available with the “Tersa” disposable knife
option, a feature designed to cut setup times to
the absolute minimum.
Planing fence
The fence is mounted on a precision mechanism
enabling accurate angle adjustment from 90° to 45°.
Formula SP1 SP2 Thicknessing planers
Formula series thicknessers are renowned for their strength. The
machining unit with a four-knife cutter block guarantees a high-quality
finish. An infeed roller with helical grooving and a rubber coated outfeed
roller ensure efficient, smooth workpiece feed.
SP2 in CE configuration
Formula SP1 SP2
SP1 in CE configuration
Controls
All the controls are in an
ergonomic position on the
front of the machine. The
feed speed selector, the
electric work height adjuster and the mechanical
digital dimension readout are all conveniently
placed for the operator.
In the non-CE model in
the standard version the
worktable is raised using
a handwheel.
The ground, cast-iron worktable is mounted on four recirculating ball screws driven by a
chain. Standard features on the
CE version include the electric
adjustment: a solution offering
ease-of-use, maximum precision and rapid setup.
Formula FS1 FS2 Combined planer-thicknesser
machines
All advantages combined
The combined versions have the same features as the single-operation
machines. Combined machines are the ideal solution for the woodworker
who needs to perform a range of machining operations and has limited
workshop space.
FS2 in CE configuration
Formula FS1 FS2
Quick and easy to retool.
Changing over from planing
to thicknessing is very easy
and takes just a few seconds.
To make things even easier,
the worktable raising system
is spring-assisted.
FS1 in CE configuration
Feed system
Both efficacy and top performances are assured. The
motorized top feed rollers with
large diameter, together with
the rubber coated outfeed
roller, grant an efficient and
constant feed for every kind of
wood.
Main options available on request
The thicknesser worktable can be fitted with
two rollers to optimise workpiece feed and
throughput.

“Tersa” cutter block with disposable knives
The knives are clamped securely in place inside the cutter block by centrifugal force. This is
another feature guaranteeing top safety and machining precision. The Tersa system has no clamping screws. Changing the knives is therefore
very quick and easy.
The innovative knives fixing system
to the cutterblock eliminates the
setting up times.
Easy cutterblock knives introduction.

Knives self-locking at the machine
starting thanks to the centrifugal
force. The automatic projection of
all knives is perfectly adjusted.
Quick knives substitution by gibs

Sectioned steel roller
A feed system is available to grant the simultaneous working of different thickness
workpieces. It consists of a special sectioned steel roller in place of the infeed standard one.

Formula T60F T60I T70F Spindle moulders
Formula spindle moulders combine high performance and absolute reliability with precise, flexible operation. First-class construction approved by certification bodies and solutions resulting from the experience
accumulated by an industrial group are not normally found for such a reasonable price. In addition to the
standard models with fixed or tilting spindle, there are dedicated versions which offer many possibilities for
working in different ways, for example for moulding or tenoning or even both on the same machine. The
choice of optional items means that you can create a machine suited to specific machining requirements
resulting in a highly flexible multi-purpose machine for the various requirements of woodworking shops.
