Why Do I Need Guide Alignment System?

Misaligned saws result in frequent saw changes. Time is money, and with an adjustable water block eliminating your saw step, you can significantly decrease the amount of mid-shaft saw changes. The more time your saws spend running, the more profit your sawmill is making. Our clients have seen up to a 50% decrease in saw changes.

Eliminating saw step produces better quality lumber that can be sold at a higher price. More production time combined with a higher dollar per board foot creates a hugely positive impact on your bottom line.
