Choose Fortuna for the World’s Best
Skiving machines remove excess material, usually along the edge or edges of a part. Skiving is often used in the leather goods, automotive and furniture industries to bevel the edges of parts that will be turned over and glued to form a finished edge.
Hudson’s simple bench-top skivers range from single-speed clutch motors and bottom-driven roll feed to more powerful dual (top and bottom) driven rollers for heavy-duty materials, together with separate electronically controlled knife and feed motors for maximum flexibility. Some sophisticated models include special steel stands and vacuums to collect dust and waste. Skiving machines can process cut widths up to 50mm (~2”).
Many of the Hudson-Fortuna splitting and skiving machines are automated to store programmable parameters for cutting thickness, angle and width to ensure production flexibility and quality independent of the user. All are designed for efficient, ergonomic operation.
