The Barr-Mullin Compu-Rip is the world's most widely used
gang ripsaw optimizer. The Compu-Rip scans the board for width
to determine the optimal cutting solution which is projected
onto the board via overhead lasers. The operator can approve or
modify the solution based on the physical characteristics of the
board. Boards are then sent to the Compu-Rip's moveable fence
and through the ripsaw. The Compu-Rip can be used with fixed
blade or moveable blade gang ripsaws. The system is also
available with a board ejector for crook or moisture.
Each Compu-Rip is controlled by a Pentium computer and is
outfitted with a modem to facilitate easy connection with the
BMI Service department. Your Compu-Rip can be serviced directly
over the phone. The computer saves profiles of each board so
that simulations can re run to optimize further cuttings.
