The secret of the OptiCut 200 Basic lies in maintaining constant accuracy at high speeds. Non drive-dependent measuring wheels only measure when the wood is in motion. This means that uncontrolled slip or belt stretch in the feed system do not distort the measuring result, so that the machine cuts exactly in the intended place. This avoids defects in the quality wood and guarantees exact fixed lengths irrespective of the wood quality. Commercially available conveyor belts reduce the running costs of these all-round economic machines.
