Align circular saws
The saw blade (or blades) should be aligned parallel to the saw line. The most common way is to point the laser beam along the center of the entire machine, at specific alignment marks at the ends. Blades, reducers and guide planes etc. are then checked against this reference line, so that the correct angle is achieved on each machine unit. This way you can also during shorter stoppages check the machine when quality defects are detected in the sawn material.
Align band saws
Band saw wheels should be parallel to each other, and perpendicular to the saw line. We usually use a laser transmitter mounted next to the band saw wheels, which can be indexed (rotated) exactly 90° to the saw line, to check the angle of the band saw wheels. The guide plane and reducers are also adjusted to the desired angle to the log direction.
