Horizontal Beam Saw
As one of the heaviest saws in its class, the kappa automatic 80 with pressure bar and steel material slider is durable and of high quality machine construction. High-end cuts, highest precision and maximum repeatability are the results of this philosophy. With the new development of the kappa automatic saw carriage, the cutting direction was reversed to cut towards the fence. With the newly developed control panel with a 24" flat screen monitor in combination with the cutting direction against the fence and a saw blade cutting height of 80 mm, the machine is one of the biggest in its class.

Saw carriage with main and scoring unit

Saw carriage with main and scoring unit



The saw carriage with main blade and scoring blade runs on ground and hardened round guides and ensures an extremely smooth movement and an exact right angle. The cutting height can be set manually, pneumatically or electronically.

Perfect cutting results - New cutting direction

Perfect cutting results - New cutting direction



A main and scoring saw blade guarantee perfect and chip free cutting results with a cutting height of 80 mm. Combined with the cutting direction against the fence, a first class high end cutting result is achieved.

Simple operation 

Simple operation 



The simple design of the control panel and the clearly laid out menu guidance of the software control with a Windows based system, is intuitive in its operation. Connecting the machine control to existing systems or networks is of course possible. The kappa automatic can be equipped with Ardis cutting optimisation software. As an option, it can also be equipped with a label printer. 

Double measuring system on the material pusher

Double measuring system on the material pusher



The material positioning unit is equipped with two measuring systems that constantly monitor each other. The combination of a highly precise servomotor and solid material grips ensure constant repeatability. The measuring system is entirely separate from the drive system, thereby not subject to any ­additional wear and tear.

Perfect process reliability

Perfect process reliability



In combination with the cutting optimisation software a label can be printed for each workpiece with various information (order number, intended use, CNC program, which side is to be put through edgebander).

Veneer fences

Veneer fences



Pneumatic veneer fences are available for panel cuts of veneered panel materials with a veneer projecting edge or laminated panels.

Roller track

Roller track



The roller track supports the material pusher transport of panels and guarantees a precise feed of the panel material to the cutting line.

Efficient software packages

Efficient software packages
