Optimising cross-cut saw KP 500 Optim is designed for woodworking companies, which process massive wood and put maximum emphasis on the quality and yield of their production. Optimising saw KP 500 Optim is used for cutting out defects and optimising fixed lengths of blades in the production of glued blocks, boards, massive furniture parts, floor, floorboards, boards, packages, etc. Stable and robust design of the optimisation saw ensures accurate and rapid cuts in wood. Feeding equipment moves reduced material to cut with high speed and positioning accuracy of ± 0.3 mm.
The operator performs a visual assessment of a piece and marks the location of defects with a chalk. The material is put on the insert table of the machine – there is an automatic load of the length and marked defects. This information is processed by a powerful NC tools which set a breakdown plan of embedded material. Then the automatic start and shifting of the material into the cut follow. Cut parts at the output from the optimization machines meet the requirements according to the identified defects and specified fixed lengths of material.
Of course, there are security features that ensure a security of work on the rip saw. The machine fulfils the strictest demands on the security of work follows from relevant EC regulations and directives.

Basic functions of the device
1. Length optimization
At the beginning, the lengths and number of pieces of the desired range enter the piece list. This data can be then activated in the optimization program. It lies in the combination of selected lengths of cut range to minimize waste. At the same time, the piece list monitors the amount of cut material and interrupts work in completing the task in the specified range. The saw automatically measures out the length of the inserted material so more inserted lengths can be combined without prior sorting. The program can set the desired length of the cutting of fronts. On the rear conveyor belt position for sorting according to lengths of lumber. Each ejector is triggered when the part of the specified length is cut off. Sorting is done Sorting is done by throwing into the prepared boxes or on the lateral slip.
Number of optimized lengths is without limit.
2. Qualitative optimization – waste
Optimization of timber according to the quality allows the use of working cycle of previous functions together with the possibility of marking timber defects by chalk. Chalk contains a substance which records the control system of the saw. By crossing the stop over the cut material in retrograde motion are written the current locations of necessary cuts. The resulting parts in various lengths between the carved defects are automatically measured and using a computer are cut into fixed lengths according to the optimized cutting scheme. The piece list determines the number of cut pieces of the length in question. If the cut part does not meet the length of the smallest chosen product range, it goes to waste.

Production capacity of optimization line
The production capacity is determined by the dimensions of the processed material, its quality and produced assortments. For calculation the data about the average speed of the loader 60 m/min. and the rate of one cycle of cut approximately 1,0 second can be used. For the materials of the length of 5 m, spruce, 30 x 90 mm, 4 cuts on 1 m is a production capacity 200 – 300 m per hour.
Optional sorting driven roller conveyor on output
Rear sorting conveyor with the possibility of longitudinal separation into more storage boxes. The system works on a principle of electronic lengths measurement and classification into the boxes with ejectors.
