Optimize Sizes Within Ends
Multiple length pieces are cut from each piece to optimize the usage and reduce the waste. The computer measures the length of the board and decides how to best achieve the maximum yield based on the cutting lengths our customer has specified. This option does not take defects into account when making length decisions. An example of this option is cutting random width or ripped lumber to rough lengths for cabinet makers to make glued up panels for raised panel doors. This option also works well when cutting multiple length components from clear products such as MDF, PVC, plywood and/or clear lumber
Optimize Sizes Within Ends and Crayon Marks
This option combines the “Defecting to Crayon Marks” and “Optimize Sizes Within Ends” options. Defects are marked with a crayon, again based on our customer’s needs, then the board is scanned by the computer. The computer then determines how to cut around the marked defects and the ends to determine the best yield on the material. Examples include cutting lumber into clear components for cabinet frames, door parts, stair parts or furniture parts or to create “trim packs” for building projects where mouldings and S4S items are rough cut and designated for each room.
In addition to cutting lumber and mouldings, Rex can cut up customer stock such as MDF, PVC, plywood, siding, dimension, or other wood products.
The trimming capabilities of this machine have a tolerance of plus or minus 1/32”, which is acceptable in most applications other than applications with supercritical tolerances, like herringbone flooring. The capacity of the machine is from ¼” to 3” in thickness; 1” to 12” in width; and 6” and longer in length.
