With on-board programming and optimisation, the automatic crosscut saw gives the operator the choice to write cutting lists directly on the saw or to download cutting lists from the office via JJ Smith’s Design2Saw pre-optimisation/conversion software, streamlining the processes and enhancing product quality.
Prior to installing the Stromab Automatic Crosscut Saw, traditional manual cutting methods were leading to inconsistencies and increased waste. Manually operated crosscut saws require extensive labour, and delays in cutting and processing can cost significantly.
To address these challenges and make way for an increase in production, company director Daniel Mossop contacted JJ Smith to discuss his requirements with our crosscutting experts, and it was clear that that the Stromab MX Automatic Crosscut Saw with a 14-metre infeed capacity was the best solution.
The automatic crosscut saw’s advanced technology has enabled accurate and consistent cuts with minimal human intervention. This ensures timber is cut to precise dimensions, reducing waste and enhancing product quality. The automatic push feed system allows for continuous operation, significantly increasing the overall efficiency of the cutting process and drastically reducing lead times. Orders can now be fulfilled much faster, contributing to the excellent reputation Jacksons Timber has as a timber supplier.
With the automatic crosscut saw in place, Jacksons Timber are now able to optimise its workforce by redirecting labour from manual cutting tasks to other value-added activities such as quality control and packaging, again improving overall productivity.
Product diversification and growth
The precise cutting capabilities of the automatic crosscut saw has enabled Jacksons Timber to provide customers with timber of varying dimensions, catering to a broader range of construction and manufacturing needs and strengthening their position in the competitive timber market.
Daniel, Director of Jacksons Timber, states “The installation of the Stromab Automatic Crosscut saw has been a game-changer for Jacksons Timber. Kevin from JJ Smith took the time to understand our needs and provided us with the right machinery that can handle our requirements with a 14-metre infeed capacity, which has revolutionised our operations. The advice and expertise from JJ Smith have been second-to-none and I would highly recommend them to any business looking to increase productivity.”
