Like all RazorGage products, RazorOptimal is built to lead the industry in reliability, accuracy, and ease of use without wreaking havoc on your bank account. The RazorOptimal system includes all the components listed above as well as RazorDesktop software used to import multiple orders from you cabinet design software into a single editable database to which you may add grading information or input locations for optional Pocket Hole Drilling, Space Ball Insertion, or Face Frame Scribing.
The RazorOptimal system allows the operator to download the saved RazorDesktop database via Ethernet, appends it to the current running database, and sorts it into TYPES by species, thickness, and width. You can process TYPES as they appear, navigate among them, or jump out to MANUAL mode and back as needed.
Defecting boards is accomplished digitally using the Cast Aluminum Joystick to position the Line Laser at the start of a defect and depressing one of the two Defect Grading Triggers while dragging the line across the defect then releasing it on the other side. Defects can be digitized in any order or totally at random. When finished, press a thumb button to identify the end of the board and the RazorOptimal software searches the database selecting parts that will make the optimal use of the clear wood available.
Load the part into the pusher and press GO. The RazorOptimal will feed the part, cycle the saw, and print labels while you continue to queue defected boards.
Productivity Modules allow the RazorOptimal to Optimize your Payback by performing other tasks inline in addition to sawing. Parts are flagged for scribe locations, and Space Ball locations in the Optimal Desktop software. The Scribing Module pre-marks face frame parts to increase throughput and accuracy at the layout table. The Space Ball Module inserts Space Balls into pre-moulded door stock.
