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.

How it Works:

  1. A Board is placed on the Infeed Section
  2. The system measures the width, length, and shape of the board using sensors placed at 1’ increments
  3. With our unique “Skewing Fence”, the machine adjusts the angle and position of each board to achieve the highest possible yield
  4. The laser lights move with the saw blades to project the rip solution on the board
  5. The operator has several options available to improve the final rip solution. Once that is determined, the board is processed into the saw and the next board is measured
  6. The Cameron Software Actively Tallies all Production, constantly updating a number of reports that can be saved.

This System Features:

  • Full Optimizing Infeed
  • 12″ Wide Arbor, (2) Moving and Multiple Fixed Blade Rip Saw
  • Auto-Skew to Increase Board Yield
  • Fully Integrated Software Package
  • Automatic Movable Blade Positioning by the Cameron Software

The Skew is our answer for Rip Optimization in a custom shop. It will quickly transform a labor intensive hand fed rip work cell, into an efficient and effective. Cameron has further refined their rip software to make it easy and affordable for the small shop.
