Chopsticks is a non-profit charity that caters to adults with disabilities. Honing their skills and improving their confidence in a work environment by chopping firewood from scrap timber, and selling it to the general public thus creating ‘ Chopsticks’. Chopsticks provide a safe, fulfilling experience for their members and clients, and whilst at the charity, they spend time improving their social skills, gaining confidence, and forming great friendships.

The Machine

We installed a new Stromab Matrix Automatic Cross Cut Saw to complement an existing machine that was supplied 10 years ago. To date, we have supplied over 350 Matrix saws into the UK, with a good number of customers installing several machines.' This machine has a heavy-duty range of upstroke crosscutting saws, designed for programmable and repetitive cutting from standard and/ or random lengths of timber.

The saw unit has a pneumatic upstroke action with variable speed control, while the pushed/ feed is fitted with a heavy-duty rack and pinion drive feeding system for fast positioning giving a high level of repeat cutting accuracy. The saw unit and clamping area of this machine are totally enclosed by a clear hinged electrically interlocked hood that while giving the operator a clear view of the cutting area still gives complete protection.
