Optimizing cross-cut saws with positioning pusher: As universal and diverse as the requirements of your customers

Cross-cutting –a simple process with more benefits than you might think - increased productivity, value creation, protection of resources and, not least, profit. Ultimately, every workpiece must be cross-cut at some point during production. With an OptiCut S from the Dimter Line you can automate and optimize your lengthwise cross-cutting, guaranteeing you reliably high daily performance and production quality.

Whether cutting single boards or packages of boards, profiles or rods in solid wood, derived timber products or even plastics, all of this is possible with the automatic optimizing cross-cut saws with positioning pushers from the Dimter Line OptiCut S series - and with no long setup times. The OptiCut S series from the cross-cut saw specialist offers you the necessary flexibility in your production and supports you with the challenges of day-to-day work.

Every production run has its own different requirements and options. The modular design of the OptiCut S series enables us to tailor your saw precisely to your wishes and requirements. Starting with the OptiCut S 50, an individual machine, to the fully-automatic, linked OptiCut S 90 cross-cut line from the Dimter Line with automatic charging of the machine and automatic stacker at the outfeed, we can offer the right solution for you – everything from a single source.

Our close contact with you "our customers" and focus on our core skill of "cross-cutting" has made us the technology leader. The high quality and availability of our machines in day-to-day production make "OptiCut" saws synonymous with length-optimized cross-cutting. This is evidenced by our "OptiCut 450 Quantum Dimter Line - the fastest saws in the world"

NorDan factories undergo digital transformation

WEINIG NorDan Conturex OptiCut Powermat

As an integral part of the strategy to modernize and digitize the window production in NorDan's factories in Sweden, the company invested of about SEK 50 million (Swedish kroner) in new machinery in 2018.

The window factory in Kvillsfors which primarily produces windows for the project market, and the window factory in Tanum which produces windows for the residential market have both seen new, fully automatic production lines for cutting/moulding and CNC machining. The equipment is delivered by WEINIG, a world leader on production machinery for the window industry. The machines are run digitally, receiving batch files directly from the ERP system. An incredible flexibility in use and high effiency are also key features in the investment.

The preparations began in Tanum and Kvillsfors in October 2017, to be ready to receive the new machinery from Germany.

The production lines for cutting/moulding are 30 meters long, and the CNC machining center measures 36 meters from end to end, says Tommy Egelström, responsible for the installation of the new machinery.

The cut and moulding line consists of 3 central units.
1. Vacuum destacking system
2. Opticut S 90
3. Powermat 1500

All 3 units are connected together in line and linked by transport units.

The new CNC machining center (Conturex 226) produces complete window components, and together with the cut and moulding line, only 7-8 minutes are required to machine all the components for a complete opening window.

These new machines let us reduce lead times in the factories, and the production lines can be run with fewer operators than traditional machines can, Tommy Egelström says. He adds that the machines are set up to be able to produce products from different product series in the NorDan portfolio, and that each machining center has a capacity of 260 tools with automatic tool change when needed.

The CEO of NorDan AB, Dag Kroslid, welcomes the investment and comments:
“This is a great leap for our factories. Machinery, flexibility and digitalization all plays into this, and the NorDan Group is sending a strong signal that the factories in Sweden are prepared for the future!”
