Low maintenance and precise positioning

In 2010 USNR launched the Multi-Track Fence, a cost effective solution to improve the speed and accuracy of the trim line. The first fence was installed in June 2010, and today 32 Multi-Track Fences have been installed globally.

This fence accommodates very high speeds with precise board positioning, an excellent choice for high-speed optimized applications requiring 0.1” (0.25 cm) positioning resolution. The Multi-Track Fence allows wider lug spacing at high speeds, with less critical timing than other rotary fence models. It operates without any air or hydraulics; all electric actuation.
