This saw has a 12" width capacity and 16' length capacity.
We used it as a "cut-to-mark" saw as we were defecting for yield.
The saw can be set up for full Optimising, though.
Board is marked with a florescent crayon by operator at knots or defect spots.
Board is then fed on canted conveyor belt under camera/measuring unit.
Measuring unit sends signal to saw to chop at leading end, marked spots, and trailing end.
Saw can be programmed for defect size to kick out waste as it is generated.
End trimmed board then comes out of saw and onto outfeed belt with kickers to push stock onto pull deck or pick up point.
This is a very well built German made machine - parts still available.
