Scotchman Industries®, Inc.’s (Philip, SD) CPO 350 AutoLoader is a fully automatic sawing system that is made in the U.S. and guaranteed to save time, reduce scrap and eliminate costly mistakes. Scotchman has taken their semi-automatic CPO 350 PKPD saw and added an auto-loading system to create a fully automatic sawing system that can cut multiple lengths of tube (max 3 in diameter). This saw comes standard with a Windows®-based touch screen control, 5 hp variable rpm speed motor, 315 mm diameter blade and the ability to run unlimited cut lists from 1/2 in to 23 ft lengths. Run a complete cut list, or a run of cut lists at 90 deg on an automatic cycle, or switch to operate the saw in a semi-automatic cycle to miter cut. Quick set-up, automatic part length changes and fast reloading of material adds efficiency, along with accurate cut lengths and precision always within ± 0.002 per diameter inch in squareness.
