LIGNA 2011: PAUL presents systems for solid wood and panel processing.
"See – Experience – Understand". Visit PAUL at LIGNA 2011 (hall 12/stand C06), see high-quality woodworking machines on the spot, experience woodworking live at the exhibition stand and understand why your decision should be taken in favour of a woodworking machine made by PAUL.
We are presenting leading technologies for solid wood and panel processing to the expert public on an exhibition space of about 400 m². We are not only presenting innovations and further developments, but also proven solutions:
The heavy-duty cross-cut system RAPID stands for “pure dynamics“ and maximum availability. PAUL also presents the cross-cut system C11 for small to medium-sized cross sections. The RAPID system, complete with PAUL Wood Vision scanner and buffer station, will probably be at the focus of the cross-cut systems. Six powered feed rollers (each at the top and at the bottom) ensure a very precise and dynamic transport of the material even with very difficult timber. Two saw blades are coordinating the material cut and ensuring a trouble-free waste disposal. And all this in the usual excellent and robust PAUL quality and with a minimum maintenance effort. The successful model C11 ensures an economic solution for a maximum added value of the products. Destacking units, mechanization components or stacking systems are a warrant for a high productivity at the lowest operating costs. Same as with the RAPID system, one can thus realize customer-specific overall solutions.
From the saw milling technology range PAUL shows a heavy-duty circular resaw model SGL1222 as well as the newly developed circular edger and rip saw model KME3. The SGL1222 impresses with its size and capacity, which makes it possible to process cants up to 225 mm in height at an opening width of 1200 mm. PAUL is presenting the KME3 for the first time at LIGNA. It can be fed manually, in a semi-automatic or fully automatic way and is thus covering nearly all customer requirements. Further mechanization components are turning the KME3 into an edging and ripping system for a maximum added value. Drive motors of up to 90 kW are providing the necessary power for processing the workpieces of up to 160 mm in height and 950 mm in width.
To make full use of the capacity of the KME3, PAUL at the same time developed a new CNC control for circular edgers and circular resaws. The control represents the direct interface between man and technology; that is why particular attention was paid to a user-friendly operation and best ergonomics during development. The network-compatible CNC control is based on the LINUX operating system. The customer may select between two versions, the MAXIRIP and the OPTIRP, which are standing for maximization, i.e. optimization of the results, depending on the requirement.
PAUL presents another innovation, the non-contact marking system. It is intended to close the gap between manual marking and a fully automatic scanner. Furthermore it offers an alternative to the scanner for timbers that are difficult to detect where manual marking has so far been indispensable. Cameras are detecting the workpiece from all four sides, an operator comfortably marks the defects at the computer workstation and the cross-cut system cuts out the previously marked places even more precisely.
