Skew Rip System

Manufacturer: Cameron Automation / Taylor MFG (NY, USA)

Type: Automated Rip Saw With Skewing Infeed

Industry: Lumber & Millwork, Flooring, Cabinets 

Materials: 

Wood

The industry’s best value! Designed for small and medium shops looking for high efficiency and throughput. The Cameron Skew System will cut up to (5) Boards per minute, maximizing the yield of raw materials and the efficiency of the work cell.

 

The Skew is a highly efficient, inexpensive, full-featured, rip optimization system designed to fit any 12″ wide gang rip saw and specifically developed for the custom shop. The unique feature of The Skew is the skewing fence. It has the ability to twist and feed the board into the saw to get the best yield. The Skew also has all the features of the high-end optimization systems like: lumber tallying, pack reporting, bundle reporting, yield calculations, simulations, and much more. The greatest benefit of The Skew is the Return on Investment, which can be well under 1 year.

Quick Rip System

Manufacturer: Cameron Automation / Taylor MFG (NY, USA)

Type: Automated Rip Saw

Industry: Lumber & Millwork, Flooring, Cabinets 

Materials: 

Wood

Unlike other systems, the Quick Rip is fenceless and has auto-skewing for achieving the highest possible yield. Our sensors read the width, the length, and the shape of the boards. If a board has crook or taper, our software can determine if the board should be skewed for higher yield. If so, it happens automatically. This adds up to an additional 3% yield over systems with a fence. Quick Rips can be paired with Moving Blade Saws that come with (2), (3) or (4) moving blades depending on your cut-bill and lumber. The Cameron Opti-Rip software is written in-house, allowing changes, improvements, and free upgrades to happen on a regular basis.

#415A-AOR

Automated Opti-Rip

Manufacturer: Cameron Automation / Taylor MFG (NY, USA)

Type: Automated Rip Saw

Industry: High Production Lumber & Millwork, Large Furniture Factories 

Materials: 

Wood

The Automated Opti-Rip rip has Cameron Automation’s largest infeed, capable of running 10+ Boards per minute, for the high production lumber mills and large woodworking factories.

The Automated Opti-Rip rip saw optimization system is very adaptable to many material handling systems. Some of our systems are fed manually from a scissor lift of planed lumber. Some systems have a landing deck and are fed from the outfeed conveyor of a planer, and some systems are fed by destackers and singulation machines.

 

Production:

  • Current Installation Production Rates

    • Minimum = 10,000 bd. ft. per Day

    • Maximum = 18,000 – 21,000+ bd. ft. per Day

  • Max Production

    • Typically Includes Material Handling Upstream from Rip Process

    • Typically Includes a Material Handling Outfeed System

  • (1) Operator

    • Manipulating whole Infeed System (De-Stacker, Board Singulator, Automated Opti-Rip)

    • Outfeed Chains to Catch Rips and Cross Transfer

  • (1 – 2 ) Operators

    • Pulling Material from the Chains into Carts

    • (10 – 12+) 10 Ft. Long Boards per Minute on Moving Blade Saws

    • (16 – 18+) 10 Ft. Long Boards per Minute on Fixed Arbor Saws

Rip One System

Manufacturer: Cameron Automation / Taylor MFG (NY, USA)

Type: Automated Rip Saw W/Lumber Scanning Technology

Industry: Small/Medium Sized Shops: Lumber & Millwork, Flooring, Cabinets, Furniture

Materials: 

Wood

The Cameron Automation Rip-One is a complete lumber scanning, optimization, and gang ripping work cell designed for smaller shops. The Rip-One uses high-resolution scanning technology to view both sides of a board to capture board dimensions and defects. The high-resolution images are used to optimize each and every board going through the system. It also increases productivity dramatically by transforming gang ripping into a single person operation.

The list price for the entire system for ripping 12′ lumber, including a movable blade Rip Saw, is tens of thousands or potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars less than other companies' scanners alone. Optimization systems that don’t incorporate scanners typically read the width of the board in one or more places and, at best, work with only a two-dimensional outer profile of the board. They are incapable of detecting wane or defects in the board. These optimizers can give a “best guess” ripping solution based on the board’s profile, but an operator is still required to finalize the solution based on the actual characteristics of the board. The Rip-One, on the other hand, brings the power of lumber scanning to the smaller shop, and until now, only larger shops could afford the advantages that could be gained by scanning lumber before ripping.
