Perfecting Your Setwork System and More

The professionals at MASS offer the finest in setwork system installations and upgrades. If you are looking to improve your outdated sawmill computer system, we are fully equipped to provide for all of your needs. The MASS support team can also train, troubleshoot, and tune setworks right from our office. MASS systems can do extensive logging of diagnostic data, allowing us to view this information on-site or remotely to provide full support. We proudly offer a stunning array of products and systems designed for you, including all of the following:

Mass Linear Positioning Carriage Setworks

MASS Linear Positioning Carriage Setworks Controller supervises and coordinates all system functions. It manages the interfacing with the sawyer, motion controller, and optional scanner computer. The position transducers continuously inform the system of the precise location of each head block. The set sequence for a given face may be entered by the sawyer while sawing the previous face or automatically built by pressing a single button, resulting in a higher production rate. The position of the head block closest to the saw line is continuously displayed on the touch screen in large numbers, which means the carriage doesn't have to be directly in front of the sawyer to know where the head blocks are positioned. The tapering capability of a linear carriage is one of the most important features. The sawyer or optional scanner computer can infinitely taper the log to yield the desired face quickly.

Saver Setworks

MASS Set Shaft Carriage Setworks is designed to control a line shaft carriage. A color touch screen is mounted in the sawyer's console, vertically or horizontally, for operation, setup, calibration, and diagnostics. The setworks comes standard with the ability to control (2) two forward speeds, (1) one reverse, and a brake.

The carriage only needs a forward and reverse function for the setworks to operate. Optionally, the setworks can be configured to control a vertical edger from the same position controller as the carriage. It is prewired at the factory, so installation is quick and straightforward. Upgradable to MASS proportional valve and/or Linear Positioning carriage setworks at a very affordable price! It features all of the following distinct advantages:

  • Direct Replacement for Outdated Systems
  • 54 Preset Buttons (Six Pages of 9 Buttons) Each of Which Can Be Configured As A Cant, Board, Or Pre-Built Stack
    Position Accuracy Up To 1/64"

  • Proven PC Technology (Windows Embedded OS)
  • Automatically Adjusts To Changes in Coast Due To Temperature and Mechanical Variations
  • Quick Installation
  • Easy To Calibrate
  • Employs MTS Position Transducers (Probes)

MASS Scanning Systems

The MASS Scanning system is of tremendous benefit to the sawyer and is practically transparent to him. The MASS Scanner System sets taper, opening face and automatically builds cutting stacks based on mill specified parameters. It is an excellent light curtain replacement using 3D technology (Bottom sensors are not required). The bottom line is more usable lumber in less time, which equates to a quick return on investment. An experienced sawyer will love the automatic features, while an inexperienced sawyer will come up to production much quicker.
