Just touch and go with upgraded Striebig vertical panel saws
Major improvements have been made to the popular Striebig Evolution and Control Series of vertical panel saws, improving their efficiency and making them even more attractive for use in the busiest of production environments.
Launched at Ligna, both the upgraded Evolution and Control models now feature as standard Striebig’s innovative “touch and saw” operating system. This delivers easy and convenient machine control through a touch screen panel. A fingertip touch is all that’s needed to operate all of the functions of the machine.
The two other new features also available as standard are improved error messaging and a laser-supported display for making totally accurate horizontal cuts, another industry first for Striebig.
There are also new additional options to make the saws even more productive. These include an automatic top trimming function, for use in combination with the current 4SB bottom trim; an improved electronic positioning system with control via the touch screen; and automatic positioning of the saw head when making horizontal cuts.
A particularly advanced new option is the addition of a cutting list input function via a USB memory stick, with data coming from Striebig panel optimization software developed specifically for vertical panel saws. All possible dimensions are shown on the touch screen with each dimension ready to be selected by the operator.
Matt Pearce, sales coordinator at T.M. Machinery Sales, Striebig’s sole UK distributor, said: “The upgraded Evolution and Control machines offer as standard an unbeatable package of advanced features and ergonomic design that makes them unrivalled in today’s market.
“With full automation of the sawing operations and the additional special options available, the Control has been transformed into the world’s very first vertical panel cutting centre.
“Because of their more efficient built-in operating functions, both upgraded models deliver the twin benefits of reduced energy use and less material wastage, which in these difficult economic times has to be a good thing.”
For almost a decade, the Evolution has been the global market leader in the area of manually operated panel saws, while the Control has led the field in fully automatic machines. These latest improvements will ensure that both models continue to maintain these coveted positions.
The new models, which are accurate down to 1/10mm, will be available to customers in the UK and Ireland from October.
