Koch Ltd. Machinery will show the Paul Optimizing Crosscut Saw in Booth 5813, an IWF 2016 Challengers Award finalist, at the woodworking fair in August. With speeds up to 1,500 feet-per-minute, the Vision Scanning RAPID optimizing high-speed CNC cross-cut system Wood Vision scanner eliminates crayon marking.
 
The CNC cross-cut systems of the RAPID model series are designed for high-performance continuous operation. In this model series PAUL offers profitable solutions in high-capacity cross-cutting for all industrial requirements of timber processing with maximum yield.
Unlike other high-performance CNC cross-cut systems, this machine is fitted with two saw blades working independently from each other. This ensures more reliable waste removal and a considerable increase in availability of the system by safe operation.
 
Koch says the PAUL top and bottom powered roller pairs result in a powerful and smooth power transmission, so that difficult workpieces are precisely fed and precisely cut at high feed speeds, supported by a robust toothed gearing for the feed. 
Two overhead saws ensure a trouble-free removal of waste pieces, thus increasing the availability of this cross-cut system. Fully automatic cross-cut lines for a safe operation at maximum capacity and yield arise in conjunction with automatic infeed systems, scanners along with sorting systems and auto stackers.
