G-TEK Develops Vertical Double-Arbor Gang Saw

G-TEK Industries has developed a new vertical, double-arbor gang saw. The company’s new machine is designed to provide gang saw reliability for processing three-sided slabs. It also will rip square cants and boards.

G-TEK’s standard vertical, double-arbor gang saw can process 3-1/2-inch and 5-1/2 inch wide material at the same time. It has a kerf range of .145 to .160 using 12-inch diameter blades. Feed speeds range from 30-100 feet per minute, depending on type of material being resawn.

When used for processing slabs, the slabs are powered through the machine by a series of aggressive vertical feed rolls with no overhead feeding apparatus. This eliminates trash problems associated with processing slabs, according to G-TEK.

For more information, contact G-TEK at (800) 643-4835, fax (270) 377-3074, or visit the Web site at www.gtekindustries.com.
