Precision Husky Offers Helical Face Chippers
Disc plate thickness gradually decreases from one knife clamp to the next knife edge. The radially tapered wear plate helps maintain a smoother feed by allowing the material to feed along its natural path, which also ensures a more consistent chip size.
Overall chipper performance has increased, reflecting overall cost reductions and increased profits, according to customer reports.
Precision Husky offers the helical faced options on all different sizes. For more information, call Jeff McLaughlin at (205) 640-5181.
