PCMC said its new additions provide independent lane and flight control

PCMC has said its latest tissue log saw Xcut now includes two additional technologies that “improve the performance of the saw and downstream packaging equipment”.   

Through its patent-pending SmartFlowTM technology, the supplier said the additions provide independent lane control and independent flight control to eliminate air cuts and increase saw speed.  

It added that this makes it easier to maintain, whilst still approaching production rates that were “historically only achievable by complex continuous-motion log saws”. 

Jonathon Zahn, lead mechanical engineer for the Xcut, said: “Instead of sacrificing one for the other, you get both. These key features allow for increased saw speed and a more controlled downstream performance.”
