RazorOptimal Pocket Hole

Optimizing saw system with pocket hole boring and face frame scribing

RazorGage produces both a standard RazorOptimal optimizing saw and a programmable pocket hole machine option. With the RazorOptimal pocket hole saw, face frame parts come off the machine ready for assembly.

The RazorOptimal programmable saw system with pocket hole machine option is customizable and capable of transforming your cutting operation. With the precision of our RazorGage ST Automatic Saw Measuring System and the power of our pocket drilling down-cut saw, we created a highly accurate, optimizing saw system to streamline your processes unlike any other pocket hole drill machine on the market.

The RazorOptimal pocket hole cutter features specialized crayon-defecting technology, enabling cut optimization and minimizing the amount of good stock going to waste while attempting to get rid of defective spots. First, the operator marks defects on the material. Then, the saw system scans the material for crayon marks and optimizes remaining parts to fit into the defect-free areas. This automatic defect detection feature means avoiding splits, knots and other wood defects without wasting quality materials.

Using the RazorOptimal Programmable Pocket Hole Machine

To begin using this optimizing saw with pocket hole cutter, the operator needs to import custom cutlists or use the RazorOptimal software to create cut settings. Once the appropriate cutlist is selected, the operator marks the defects with crayon and the automated pocket hole saw does the rest!
The saw system scans the material for defects and automatically optimizes all cuts to fit within defect-free areas of your material, maximizing the usable area. Then, the pocket hole saw system automatically advances, cuts lineal stock, drills pocket holes, scribes face frame layout lines and prints the part information directly on your material.

Two days installation and training are included with the purchase of all RazorOptimals (US or Canada only). We also work with leasing partners to offer RazorGage products at an affordable monthly payment.

Pocket Hole Drilling and Face Frame Scribing With the RazorOptimal

Two main features set this RazorOptimal saw system apart from our standard RazorOptimal unit: pocket hole drilling and face frame layout scribing.

If you purchase the RazorOptimal with the pocket hole option, the saw system will be equipped with a 3-spindle pocket hole drill gear drive spindle cartridge located to the left and right of the main saw blade. Drill up to 2 pocket holes at a time, depending on your needs. Unlike other standalone pocket hole drilling machines, this feature is built right into the main saw system, maximizing efficiency and saving you the cost of purchasing additional equipment.

Face frame layout scribing is another feature unique to the RazorOptimal with pocket hole option. This optimizing pocket hole saw system can produce enough face frame parts for 40 face frames per hour.
