Streamlining workflow is critical for most wood component and furniture manufacturers. And when a machine combines separate operations into one step it can be a game-changer on the plant floor in terms of productivity and efficiency.

The Schelling S45 tilting beam saw is a multifunctional saw that can do both angled cuts and miter cuts on a single workpiece in a single step.

The ability to cut small to large pieces gives it the flexibility of a sliding table saw with the capacity and precision of an industrial saw. The S45’s tilting saw blade allows for miter cuts from 0 degrees to 46 degrees and manual, semi-automatic and fully automatic processing is available.

Additional standard features include: automatic positioning of pressure beam to board thickness and miter, fixed and movable air flotation table, 14kw saw motor with speed rates up to 100 mpm, saw aggregate with rack drive, precision guides and more.

Options increasing the machine’s versatility and application use include a device for making grooves in wood windows and glass inserts, and symmetric cutting with laser light.
