Boost crosscutting productivity and increase accuracy

Making its debut at this years W Exhibition, Daltons Wadkin are proud to announce an all new programmable stop system, SalvaStop. Developed and manufactured by Salvamac, sister company to automatic crosscut specialists Salvador, SalvaStop can be used in conjunction with any new or existing crosscut saw including Salvamac’s very own Classic range of semi-automatic ‘upstroke’ saws.

Daltons Wadkin Director Alex Dalton comments, ‘Compared to traditional measuring methods that require the operator to manually set a length stop for each cut, SalvaStop brings an instant boost to productivity and increases accuracy. Our customers have welcomed the simplicity and quality of the Salvamac crosscut saws and this will be no different. SalvaStop replaces manual turn over stops or laborious tape measurement allowing the operator to work quickly and efficiently. Easy.’

Available in a range of working lengths starting from 1.4m, the foundation of the SalvaStop is an aluminium beam that provides a smooth fence against which work pieces can slide, and also houses the high capacity pusher transmission system. A high-tensile toothed belt, reinforced with 34 individual steel strips connects the servo drive positioning motor with the pusher. The servo drive operates in a closed loop, receiving continual feedback on every movement to maintain maximum working accuracy in the toughest environments.

A large 7” colour touch screen provides the operator with an intuitive interface for operating the SalvaStop in each of the three mainmodes; jog, single, cycle. Jog is used for increasing the position by a set amount incrementally. Single allows one off dimensions to be entered with programmable ‘hot keys’ to recall common lengths. In cycle mode up to 100 cutting lists can be programmed for production work.

Cutting lists can be entered by the operator directly at the machine, or remotely by an office based worker. After each cut the SalvaStop automatically positions itself and/ or the work piece ready for the next cut.

To exploit the full potential of SalvaStop, combine it with a Salvamac Classic semi-automatic crosscut saw for solid, simple, safe operation. Available in three cutting sizes 40-50-60 with any length of infeed and outfeed tables, the Classic delivers fast, efficient and accurate 90° crosscutting.

Safe operation is ensured through two hand push button control – the machine will only operate once the operator has manually started the saw cycle by pressing two independent buttons, one with each hand, keeping fingers and limbs away from the saw line.

Once the cycle is engaged a pneumatic pressure beam descends enclosing the saw blade and clamping the timber securely during the cut. The cutting speed can be adjusted to suit different cutting depths and timber species with the whole process taking just a second to complete with no physical effort by the operator.

In addition to specialist delivery, installation and commissioning services, Daltons Wadkin also offers certificated operator training for experienced and novice operators on any woodworking machine type.
