  • Intelligent clamping
  • High speed pusher
  • Intuitive graphical operator interface
  • Remote machine monitoring and assistance


The Salvador SuperPush 250 is a programmable crosscut with automatic chain in-feed loading system, optimisation software and defecting facility as standard. Compared to traditional crosscutting methods a Salvador SuperPush can increase yield by 15% or more, reduce labour by over 50%, reduce operator skill levels and increase productivity while providing a 100% safe working operation.


The Salvador operator interface runs on a Windows PC operating system with keyboard and mouse interface. The 19” eye level screen is easy to understand with graphical representation of the machine functions, cutting lists and infeed material currently being processed.

Cutting lists can be manually entered directly at the machine, or from an office based PC using a simple Excel spreadsheet macro uploaded using a USB drive or standard network connection.

The powerful optimisation software can manage multiple cutting lists as once, including 5 quality grades with priority allocation and full control over all cutting parameters such as waste percentage, trim cuts etc.

A high performance Numerical Control system manages the material scanning, cutting parameters and finished work piece selection to maximise throughput efficiency.

The main control box for the machine is mounted independently to eliminate vibrations from the machine.

Infeed Loading and Pusher

Depending on the infeed capacity up to 6 or more loading chains systems allow the machine to be continually fed with individual or stacked work pieces for uninterrupted production. As material is loaded loaded the pusher arm scans the work piece reading its overall length and looking for any luminescent defecting marks. The optical scanning system is fixed and does not require any adjustment for varying timber thickness.

The pusher speed can be regulated within each cutting list reaching a maximum speed of 60 m/min as standard or 120 m/min as an option.

The pusher assembly runs on twin external rectified guides requiring minimal maintenance. A high powered brushless servo motor connected to a steel core toothed belt drives the pusher arm with an accuracy of +/- 1mm or +/- 0.1mm as an option.

Saw Unit

The entire saw unit and pusher infeed are one single piece ensuring total accuracy with minimal installation time. The saw cycle can be regulated from 0.1 to 2 seconds depending on the thickness and type of material being cut. The work piece is secured from above by an intelligent electro-pneumatic clamp that adjusts the down stroke to the thickness of material being cut. Additional optional side and top clamping systems can be configured to suit pack cutting etc.

Outfeed Table

The standard 3000mm outfeed table and fence can be replaced with a choice of additional systems for increased productivity; automatic length selectors for sorting finished pieces, waste trap door for offcut removal and extended collection area with tilt return ejector.

Label Printing

Printing options include simple adhesive label creation at the outfeed station, or inkjet printing directly onto the finished work piece.
