Rip Saws | Rip One System

412A, 413A & 413B | Rip One System

How it Works:

  1. Material reaches the infeed rollers manually or by conveyor.
  2. The Cameron software figures out how to rip the board based on yield, board value, or required amounts.
  3. Boards are kept in queue at the first and second stops until the machine is ready to process them.
  4. Boards are released to the fence, which is positioned and skewed to feed the board at the right spot on the arbor. The moving blades are moved into place to create the proper rip sizes.

The ripped board ends up right beside the operator. This makes it easy for the same operator to stack the finished material. It also gives him instant feedback on how the system is performing.

Simple to Use:

  • High resolution scanning at a reasonable price
  • Multiple scanning profiles can be saved and re-used depending on the material.
  • Full control over scanning parameters to meet your needs
  • Not time spent trying to rip around knots and wane, and more time producing material
  • Communicates with moving blade saws to position blades automatically.
  • Can be run as a one-man, two-man, or fully automated operation.
  • Simple to operate with no need for specially trained operators
  • Software can choose from different cut-bills based on board length.
  • Software is built on the time-tested Opti-Rip platform
  • Extremely compact design
