Wood-Mizer’s New SlabMizer Flattens Wide Slabs

With the growing demand for high-quality finished wood slabs in the woodworking industry, Wood-Mizer of Indianapolis introduced the SlabMizer MB200 Slab Flattener ideal for sawmill owners, woodworkers, and professional workshops. Built in the USA, Wood-Mizer said the SlabMizer efficiently surfaces and flattens wood slabs, boards, burls, cookies, and other wide material with minimal labor.

Compared to a traditional router or planer, Wood-MIzer said the SlabMizer flattens wider and thicker material up to 56 inches wide and 8 inches thick in less time using powered cutter head directional controls with variable feed speed. For larger capacity, a 5-foot modular table extension can be added to increase the material length. The company said a 72-inch width option is coming soon. 

SlabMizer Features

  • 56-inch maximum material width and 8-inch maximum thickness

  • 13-foot material length or longer with 5-foot modular table extensions 

  • Powered cutter head directional controls with variable feed speed or manual feed

  • 5,500 rpm 5-inch cutter head with five four-sided carbide knives

  • Orbital sanding head attachment for fine finishes

Greg Bacon, sales director of Wood-Mizer, said, “The SlabMizer satisfies the needs of operations producing high-value finished slabs and reduces the manual labor required to finish these wide slabs that are extremely valuable in the woodworking industry.”
