Chelyabinsk, Russia, February 20, 2009 --( NPO BARS, Chelyabinsk, Russia, a manufacturer of CNC-sawmill machines and water-jet cutting systems announces that in addition to the successful BARS-1A, BARS-3 and BARS-DG new BARS-3-1000 machine is now available.

Since 1999 the company NPO BARS has designed and manufactured CNC-sawmill machinery that implement the principle of angular cutting having one saw blade in the horizontal plane, another – in the vertical. BARS-3 and BARS-3-1000 are designated to be operated at woodworking factories for cutting logs into high-quality edged lumber in the automatic mode and produce workpieces for moldings, glued beam, edge-glued panel, windows and parquet.

"We are pleased to continue to expand our CNC-sawmill line to address our customer requests for our proven, quality designed and manufactured machines in larger sizes", stated the company business director.

BARS-3-1000 and BARS-3 are complete with Optima and Monitoring programmes. You can be assured that the Optima program allows to obtain high and stable lumber yields of 63% to 69% with maximum yield of quarter-sawn lumber. The saw blades are moved automatically in accordance with the cutting chart generated by the program in advance. The Monitoring program provides automatic record-keeping of raw materials, finished products, machine operation and work of personnel.

The log is clamped and aligned with the help of hydraulic system. Sawn-off boards are removed by the reverse movement of the bridge at maximum speed.

Their BARS-3 and BARS-3-1000 machines can be equipped with a hydraulic log loader with the help of which logs may be loaded from the floor – this way only one operator for the machine is required.

Due to the combination of an advanced optimization system, an automatic lumber removal system and hydraulic log loader the process of cutting is fully automatic. BARS machines are characterized by high precision of cutting with tolerance of ± 0.5 mm.

Bars-3-1000 has been designed and built to meet the needs of those who favour the structure of BARS-3 automatic CNC-sawmill machine but need a machine to cut larger logs up to 1000mm in diameter. BARS-3 can cut logs up to 700 mm in diameter.
