In perfect Industry 4.0 spirit, Fabio Perini S.p.A. presents the new Smart Machine 179AX: a log saw with 4 infeed lanes, unique in its kind, that allows fast & automatic blade replacement in total safety and without the need for operator intervention.

The machine is equipped with a 5-slot warehouse feeding an automatic change system of the worn blade in less than 3 minutes.

The blade change operation can be started up through a button from the OP or from remote control through All In One, if the log saw is part of a line equipped with this Smart Application.

The blades can be loaded in the warehouse without stopping the machine.

Additionally, the speed of the 179AX has been increased up to 270 cuts per minute and all adjustments for product change have been rendered automatic and can be stored in recipes, reducing operator intervention.

The quality of the cut has been optimized: the new grinding wheels geometry yields a higher quality of the blade edge, requiring fewer interventions for sharpening and thus guaranteeing greater blade life.
