Roof Profiles has invested in a Hundegger Turbo saw and, according to company directory Johnny Fellingham, it is allowing the company to produce more volume of timber, to the highest quality standard.
“This saw is becoming widely known as the best saw of its generation for cutting truss and timber frame material,” said Mr Fellingham. “Fuelled by files from Mitek software, the speed and accuracy at which it cuts timber is second to none.
“Due to the accuracy of the cut timber the tolerances in all the timber joints, both in our finished roof trusses and timber frame panels, are zero millimetres. The benefit of this is multi-faceted as it makes it quicker for us to assemble and press our roof trusses and frame components and nail our wall panels as there is no need to make final adjustments for components to fit together, exactly.”
The Hundegger Cambium software enables Roof Profiles to have complete transparency of productivity, timber yield, waste percentage and stock profile.
“Additionally, the finished product that we then send to the building site pieces together in exacting dimensions in accordance with the building plans,” said Mr Fellingham. “Furthermore, should there be any technical issues with the saw that we are unable to resolve internally there is excellent remote back-up from Hundegger’s base in Germany.
“The Hundegger support staff can dial into the machine and using mobile camera technology normally resolve issues immediately or identify any parts requiring replaced allowing us to resume production with minimal interruption.’
