Crosscutting Solutions Stand Proves A Hit For JJ Smith at W18

With over 128 sq/m of stand space dedicated to a range of manual, semi automatic and automatic crosscut saws, JJ Smith's hopes for a successful exhibition were not disappointed. They reported a good level of interest right across the range of machines on demonstration, with a number of unexpected but welcome orders placed at the show.

Cursal TRSI automatic high speed cross cut saw with infeed cross chain loading and separating system.

Taking centre stage was the Cursal TRSI high speed push feed cross cut saw with automatic infeed cross chain loading and separating system, outfeed sorting system and full optimisation package. As this machine can also be equipped with a defect cutting camera it is suitable for a wide range of industries including furniture, joinery, timber merchants, packing case manufacturers etc. In fact this particular machine was delivered and installed directly after the show at a timber frame manufacturer in Ireland. The other machine gaining a lot of attention was the Stromab CT600F 6m capacity fully programmable push feed cross cut saw for both straight and angled cutting, plus incorporating an in built milling head for notching / trenching. This machine can also be used for a variety of different applications including the manufacturer of garden products along with cutting / notching for door frame elements. It is particularly suited for the production of frames for mobile homes and caravans. Making its UK debut was the all new competitively priced Profistop positioning systems which were shown linked to Stromab upcut cross cut saws and Graule radial arm cross cut saws. The Profistop is available in three different configurations, Lazer, Advanced and HD depending on customers individual requirements. All models use the latest windows touch screen tablets, incorporating Profistop's own simple to use, intuitive software. Highlighting the extensive range of crosscutting solutions JJ Smith can offer, a Camam automatic hopper feed saw with straight or angled cutting facility and in built 5 spindle CNC vertical point to point drilling was demonstrated cutting / drilling furniture rails and frame corner blocks. A big plus that JJ Smith are able to offer on all automatic cross cuts saws and Profistops is their own 'Design2Saw' download software, which enables cutting lists to be directly imported on to the saw or stop system. Although the W18 show has been and gone, all potential customers are welcome to visit JJ Smiths Liverpool showroom, where they can see an even bigger range of saws set up and working. They can even bring their own timber to test!
