Wintersteiger debuts digitalised thin-cutting band saw machine
Published on :Tuesday, October 19, 2021
Wintersteiger, an international machinery and plant engineering group from Upper Austria, has released the DSB Twinhead thin-cutting band saw. The new DSB Twinhead Pro XM with two saw modules is a thin-cutting band saw machine for industrial use where a large capacity is required. With its digital solutions and a completely overhauled user interface, it heralds the start of the next generation of machines. The band saw has also been optimised for the softwood segment.
The proven predecessor model has been optimised from various viewpoints. Andreas Ramsauer, product manager of Division Woodtech, explained: “This development project was all about incorporating advances in digitalisation into a tried and tested machine to enhance it and exploit all available technical options for our customers. The result is the DSB Twinhead Pro XM, a future-proof band saw for high-quality thin-cutting of wood.”
The basic version can be extended to three machines in total, all of which are connected in series. This amounts to a total of six saw modules in one system. With the dual design of each machine, the DSB Twinhead Pro XM is also a space-saving solution.
Digitalisation brings with it enormous opportunities and possibilities. With so much data available for the cutting process, such as feed speeds for different kinds of wood, it is possible to think in terms of saw blade optimisation. Ramsauer explained: “The last few years have shown us that digitalisation has also reached the woodworking industry. So the logical next step was to take up this engineering trend.”
