Donaldson Timber Engineering installs Stromab crosscut saw for I Beams, glulam and LVL, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
Stromab TR601 MX fully programmable cross cut saw with a 14m infeed capacity and a saw unit with a 600mm via blade giving a cutting capacity of up to 650mm wide x 200mm, a 12.5hp main motor and hydraulically controlled cutting action.
To enable pushing of such heavy weights, while maintaining a high level of cutting accuracy, Stromab redesigned their standard rack and pinion Matrix pusher unit so it had a 200mm profile and incorporating heavy duty precision linear guides and bearings.
The machine was also fitted with an outfeed monitor to display the actual cut sizes as they are produced, along with a with a special label printer which enables labels to be printed on Polypropylene.
In order to provide a direct interface with DTE’s office software, JJ Smith’s own Design2Saw Level 3 software was specified allowing cutting lists to be read in and pre-optimised against stock lengths.
