The smallest machine in the range, conceived for cutting smaller volumes of lumber. Ideal solution for family farms, joiners’ workshops or small sawmills. Manual log handling. The control panel is placed on a mobile bridge of the saw band arm. Thanks to that the operator has closer access to the workpiece when cutting. Height is adjusted using a hand crank with adjustable scale.
For the first time this machine uses a bimetallic saw band, usually used in metal band saws.
This peculiarity brings the following benefits:
Very simple operation.
A single saw band can cut all types of wood without tooth adjustment, sharpening or setting.
You don’t need any experience to start cutting wood in professional quality.
Bimetallic saw band easily cuts the metal materials that might be in the log.
Maximum accuracy and long service life.
No need to buy tooth sharpener or tooth setting machine.
Bimetallic saw blades have a low cost and are easy to find.
Total power input of the machine of 4 kW guarantees low operating costs and easy connection to mains. You may also use a special 35 x 0.9 mm bimetallic saw band instead of the 27 x 0.9 mm bimetallic saw band. Similarly to the metal-cutting bimetallic saw band it doesn’t require any sharpening or tooth setting. You can also fit your machine with standard saw-cutting bands (35 x 0.9 mm) identical to those used in higher professional models CTR 710, 800 and 950. Larger teeth in these saw bands allow for increase of productivity when cutting large diameter logs. However, in the above mentioned saw bands it is necessary to sharpen and set the teeth regularly.
The arm is fitted with aluminium running wheels with accurate balancing against vibrations. The wheel has a groove along its circumference. The groove holds a replaceable rubber-textile belt which creates an optimum contact area between the wheel and the saw band.
The sturdily mounted running wheel is powered through a wedge belt by a professional electrical motor specially balanced against vibrations.
The tensioning wheel system moves within a solid cast iron guiding, which ensures long-term service life and setting accuracy even in long-term machine operation.
CTR series present the latest trends in construction of log saw bands with a special emphasis on maximum accuracy and long-term service life of the machine while ensuring minimum costs.
The machines are designed in an original modular execution which allows easy replacement or adjustment of all main technical sections and their individual parts. This in the long-term perspective reduces the maintenance costs and service times and therefore production stoppages as well.
