About this Product

Applications include:- Timber frame housing, Garden products, Decking, and any other applications requiring the cutting of angles. In addition the machine operate as a standard upstroke crosscut for straight cutting. The machine operates by pushing the boards to the correct position using an integral NC pusher before automatically operating the saw.

Optionally the machine can be specified in the HM-Z configuration which features 3rd axis centre line cutting (and optionally 4th axis for compound cutting), as well as CNC control of the cutting height and an increased cutting height. This specification makes the machine ideally suited to roof truss and other complex cutting operations

A completely automatic upstroke saw specifically designed for the accurate cutting of both straight and angled timber components. The rotation of the sawblade is NC controlled and operates very quickly and accurately. The machine has applications in all areas where there is a requirement to cut at angles.


The crosscutting saw consists of:

  • Sawing machine with 60° rotation (HM-Z option with 270° rotation)
  • 6000 mm capacity infeed (overall length 8000mm)
  • 4000mm outfeed table

Sawing machine

  • 7.5 hp motor 550 mm saw blade diameter, HM-Z option 700mm blade
  • 160 mm maximum sawing height, HM-Z option 250mm maximum sawing height
  • Maximum noise level 81 dB


  • Positioning accuracy 0.1 mm 65 m/min maximum speed AC motor with toothed rack, controlled by a frequency regulator steel guide with adjustable linear bearings


  • Industrial computer with colour monitor 1.2 Gb hard disk and USB & ethernet connections
  • H&M developed software using Windows
  • Touch Screen operation
  • Outfeed monitor to display cut sizes and references


  • The software allows for on site creation and storage of sawing lists. Sawing lists may also be created during work preparation. They can then be loaded into the machine’s computer from USB key or via ethernet connection. Creating sawing lists is very simple. The software’s graphic interface allows the selection of a specific beam model, upon which the relevant measurements are keyed in. The measurements may be entered in various ways, depending on which system is used during work preparation. The 1.2 Gb hard disk used allows for permanent storage of hundreds of sawing lists.
  • An onboard optimisation package is included which allows cutting lists entered or imported to be test optimised against timber lengths to generate an pre-optimised cutting list. This includes one import routine from external design package. An optional external software package, Optimaster is also available, for importing of cutting lists from multiple software packages, such as Excel, BTL DDS, Consultec, HSB, Sema, Vertex, Cadworks & Dietrichs. This package includes stock control, full optimisation and automatic download to any number of saws. Further information on this package is available.

The installation includes on-site instructions.
