Aug. 16, 2016 - Attendees at the Timber Processing & Energy Expo, Sept. 28-30 in Portland, Ore., will be the first in the industry to view Williams & White Equipment's RoboSharp grinder in operation as it loads and grinds saws on the show floor. 

Two years ago, Williams & White Equipment made a splash at the TP&EE with the introduction of the RoboSharp-AX10L2, a highly advanced Multi-Function Saw Sharpening Center. The RoboSharp was a major hit at the show, drawing mill owners, managers and saw filers from across the world to learn more about the future of saw sharpening and the most advanced grinder in the industry.

The RoboSharp-AX10L2 is the only machine capable of top, face and side grinding on one machine. With two independent grinding heads, mills and sharpening shops are now able to top and face grind two blades simultaneously; addressing a proven bottleneck in saw sharpening. The AX10L2 also comes with robotic loading and automated tool changing, which enables full lights-out operation.
