A RETURN TO THE THORENS DNA WITH EXTENDED FEATURES
The TD 1601 is the consistent further development of the TD 1600 in the direction of enhanced ease of use. It has a classic wooden frame, a two-part plate with an internal belt and thick rubber mat, an elaborately controlled motor, armboard, and acrylic hood, and the interior is also full of innovations and offers additional convenience functions for operation.
The three springs of the sub-chassis do not hang on the top board but stand on the floor. At the same time, a tensioned steel thread in the extension of the motor roller-plate axis prevents lateral wobbling and thus ensures a piston-shaped oscillation of the sub-chassis even when starting when the motor power is strongest and the belt is pulling sideways on the plate axis.
In addition, it offers the convenience of an electric lift that can be operated at the push of a button, a contactless limit switch, and fully symmetrical outputs.
