Xylent Spiral Cutterblock System

The MiniMax Xylent spiral cutterblock system uses rows of square cutter knives that are positioned within close proximity to each other –  spiraling around the cutter block.

Each knife has four cutting edges and can be rotated as one edge dulls. The spiral design of the Xylent system means that the knife will shear the timber rather than cut directly on it. The benefits of this system include a better quality of cut, reduced noise emission, improved shaving extraction and less working load on the machine motor.
