Summary

The SmartConveyor is a servo controlled conveyor that was orginally designed to feed the Retro C (Component saw). 


The SmartConveyor can also be integrated to feed any 3rd party linear saw or any 3rd party component saw or any 3rd party pullsaw.  Eliminate saw idle time and boost any saws production by 30% and improve productivity at the tables.


The purpose of the SmartConveyor is to separate and prepare lumber before it enters the saw. The SmartConveyor has two modes of operation. The automatic mode allows the Retro C to operate with a single operator feeding and tailing the saw. This allows the saw operator to double his production and virtually eliminates the need for another man to tail the saw for most jobs. For larger runs the SmartConveyor has a second mode that allows it to be operated with a foot petal. This allows the operator to load continuous at a higher speed than the fully automatic mode. The SmartConveyor is a serious improvement to the loading of the Retro C and takes the cutting process to a whole new level.
