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.
