Computerised Rotary Saw

Product Description

The CRS is a compact fully computerised saw ideal for use in truss plants where space is at a premium. It is capable of high volume production, cutting both large and small quantities efficiently. Alternatively, it can be used for short run production sawing, leaving component cutters free for the longer runs for which they are designed. It is simple to use, so novice sawyers can quickly become productive.
