The pusher slides on a rigid and precise extruded aluminum profile. (1)
The precision rack with inclined teeth pinion combined with linear slideways and special bearings for high-performance ensures a positioning speed up to 240 m/min. The brushless motor is positioned vertically in order to reduce friction and space. The motor, with its weight supported by the rack, reduces stress during the sliding phase. (2)
Long lasting and wear-resistant smooth table in galvanized sheet metal Between the table and the aluminum profile a slot was created for passage of the lower tail gripper (15. mm ) (3)Stromab C.1 Loader

The module loader is designed to supply the pusher avoiding downtime during the loading phase. With the new feeding system pieces are aligned on the pusher without having to wait until the end of the cutting in progress. 
Motorised loader composed of: 
No. 6 flat chain feeder groups with adjustable pins
No. 6 hidden pneumatic aligners

The carriage gripper is a unique combination of new solutions.
The upper interchangeable knife grip is placed on the carriage equipped with pneumatic lift. The lower grip is housed in the slot between the table and the profile. The piece locking system is equipped with a floating system in order to ensure extreme accuracy in positioning during cutting.

Cutting machine 
The core of the machine consists of a 7.5 kW motor and a 500 mm diameter blade. The upward movement of the blade is controlled by a high performance pneumatic cylinder.
Prior to cutting, to the right of the blade, is a side pressure roller. On the outfeed side there is a front pressure with a finely adjustable dual cylinder.
The top saw clamp casing which incorporates the dust extraction, is equipped with a double cylinder again with a finely adjustment stroke.

Software & Hardware 
The machine is equipped with a touch-screen control panel based on Microsoft Windows operating system. The intuitive graphical interface allows flexible scheduling of the processes (e,g splitting of cutting lists) with application of different optimisation modes (minimum waste, length, priority, volume, sequence) together with innovative separate management of waste and defects (waste splitting, fingerjoint, useful waste, reserve list).
