Colonial Saw to offer new dimension in vertical cutting

Publish date:

Colonial Saw Inc., the exclusive U.S. distributor of Striebig AG vertical panel saws, will debut the Striebig 4D at the 2018 IWF in Atlanta next summer.

The 4D name refers to time as the fourth dimension, an integral component of each 4D sawing center as it delivers significant increases in productivity. Already popular in Europe, the top-of-the-line Striebig 4D has fully automated horizontal and vertical workpiece positioning systems. The result is nearly effortless one-person operation and greatly reduced operator effort in terms of loading and offloading panels or pieces, according to Colonial Saw.

“The 4D took a quantum leap in terms of technology by integrating CNC capability,” Dave Bull, Colonial Saw’s Striebig product manager, said in a statement. “It is the first panel saw from Striebig to offer intelligent cut optimization. In practical terms that means it can take a project cut list, optimize the cutting pattern for the saw, and cut the sheets automatically. Now all the operator has to do is confirm the next cut and remove the finished piece.”
