The RazorGage product line is based on a modern state-of-the-art automated material positioning system.  The upper end

Filling out the top end of the RazorGage Product Line
are the RazorOptimal Saw Systems--  saw systems built
around the powerful and highly accurate RazorGage
positioners that automatically optimize and cut your
material.  Systems using the Cyclone-600 up cut saw start
at less than $40,000.  

Saw Systems using the  ultra-precision 18-inch down
cutting saw can be outfitted with automatic pocket hole
drilling and layout scribe marking.  Either configuration
can support spaceball insertion and/or RazArray sorting
assist options.

These saw systems include factory technician installation
and training.  Click on the picture to the right for more
details.

RazorGage ST linear positioner shown with a Tower PC Chassis including 17-inch touch screen.
The basic RazorGage linear positioner package is typically placed
next to a cut-off saw, but can be just as effective for boring,
drilling, haunching, notching and punching operations.  The
carriage has two bearing  blocks, each with two channels of
lubricated, circulating ball bearings running on a hardened,
precision-ground linear rail, the same bearing design used on CNC
machine tools around the world.  The drive system is designed to
withstand a crash to eliminate inaccuracy and downtime caused by
stretched or broken belts--a characteristic of competitors' saw
stops.  Backlash is tightly controlled with our zero-clearance drive
pulley and near zero backlash planetary gear head.   You have a
choice of controllers, ranging from an Android Tablet PC to a
Windows 8 Pro Tablet PC to a full Tower PC that includes a 17"
LCD touchscreen and solid state PC running Windows XP Pro.  
Operation is intuitive and networking is a snap.  If you don't want
to network your saw system, you can carry cutlists to your machine
via ordinary USB flash drives.
