Cameron Rip Saws
Model: #413A / #413B / #413C

As Movable Blade Rip Saws have become the industry standard, Cameron Automation has continued to push the envelope with (3) Rip Saw Models that it partners with its Industry leading Cameron Infeeds:

Cameron Saw Models:

  1. #413A – 12″ Wide (2) Moving Blade, Multiple Fixed Blade Saw
  2. #413B – 18″ Wide (3) Moving Blade, Multiple Fixed Blade HD Rip Saw
  3. #413C – 24″ Wide (4) Moving Blade, Multiple Fixed Blade HD Rip Saw

With a Moving Blade Rip Saw, the potential cut patterns are exponentially increased from a fixed arbor or single blade saw. From the skinniest of boards where you can only cut 1 door stile or rail, to the widest boards where you can cut multiple parts, the number of patterns is endless. Because of the number of solutions the moving blades can create, there is no down time to set up the arbor. This makes the whole process of changing from job to job seamless and efficient. The servo driven blades are extremely accurate and fast, and coupled with the Cameron software, change sizes very quickly.

Rip Infeeds to Complete the System

Cameron Rip Systems:

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. Many Skew Systems include a Cameron (2) or (3) Moving Blade Rip Saw

The Quick Rip is fenceless and has Auto Skewing for achieving 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.

The Automated Opti-Rip optimization system is very adaptable to many material handling systems. As Cameron Automation’s Largest Infeed for the High Production Lumber Mills and Large Woodworking Factories. 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. The Automated Opti-Rip automates the whole line, allowing one operator to run the system from destacker to Rip Saw.

The Rip-One Scanning Infeed 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.
