PAUL will be breaking new ground at LIGNA 2019 from May 27 to 31 in Hall 27 / Stand B20 by demonstrating some of its core competencies (ripping, cross-cutting, scanning and automation) in a fully functional automatically linked rip and cross-cut system. Composed of a Q series ripsaw, revised Wood Scanning System and a further developed C11 optimizing cross-cut saw, this processing line includes tried and tested as well as newly developed components turning unedged raw timber into optimized end products.
The PAUL Q-805 Ripsaw features a feed system combining the benefits of feed rollers (robust, economical and low-maintenance) and a chain bed ensuring precise workpiece guidance. It is suitable for ripping both green and dried solid wood with great accuracy and excellent cutting quality. Depending on the application requirements, this ripsaw is available with a saw shaft rotating against the feed or with the feed as a climb-cutting version. Apart from the feed system, the Q-805 impresses with a further developed Maxirip/Optirip control with user-friendly software for maximum timber yield. To ensure reliable and efficient material flow through the overall system, the ripsaw is equipped with a new and intelligent separation of the edged products from the waney edges. The workpieces including waste edgings are first pre-cleaned by a blowing and suction device, then the edgings are automatically separated whilst the edged products are fed to the scanner.
The PAUL Wood Scanning System uses colour cameras, line lasers, dot lasers and sophisticated software to detect any geometric deviations and unwanted wood characteristics and determine the optimum cutting result for maximum increase in value and highest productivity. The revised, more ergonomic design of the scanner housing makes access to the most important components and servicing even more user-friendly.
To enhance the productivity of the C11 Cross-Cut System, its feed drive has been provided with a water-cooled, high-acceleration servo motor which, combined with a maintenance-free toothed belt and a completely revised saw rocker, has resulted in a highly dynamic cross-cut system. For many years, the C11 has stood for highest reliability, accuracy and maximum ease of maintenance and operation. The outfeed sorting system can be supplemented by other handling components, automatic stackers or robots to form a fully automated line suiting specific customer requirements.
Of its Reinhardt brand, PAUL will be showcasing a BasicLine and a SlimLine Formatic Cross-Cut System. The SlimLine Formatic push-feed cross-cut system with integrated ripsaw which has been specifically developed for the packaging industry is ideally suited for the automated cross-cutting and ripping of packaging material for cases and pallets in a single and fully automatic pass. In addition, a SlimLine will be on display at the HOMAG stand in the window production. A PAUL SGL multirip saw for the combined edging and ripping of both cants and boards in the sawmill and a PAUL M34 multirip saw for panel ripping will round out the LIGNA range of exhibits.
The selection of the exhibits is to impressively demonstrate the performance and expertise of the South German machine manufacturer in panel processing, solid wood processing, optimized cross-cutting and the development of intelligent system solutions and complete production lines for the entire woodworking industry process chain. The exhibition team will also be pleased to advise you on all other machines and handling systems of the comprehensive product portfolio.
We look forward to welcoming you to our Stand B20 in Hall 27.
