Salvamac is the result of over 20 years of experience of the founding partners, Christian Salvador and Ziemowit Dolkowski, who continue to invest their strong passion and deep knowledge of the woodworking machinery sector into the business. All this, together with a continuous analysis of the market, has enabled Salvamac to create a network of contacts and skills, thus positioning itself as an ideal partner for those working in the woodoworking sector.
“I have always considered change as a fundamental evolutionary moment,” says Christian Salvador, co-founder of Salvamac, “and even when a moment seems negative, it is actually a great opportunity for growth.
“We know that the times we live in are not easy, but we are convinced that the spirit of sacrifice, combined with ethics and human relationships, may be the only solution. With this corporate and personal philosophy, innovation finds continuous space for new ideas, products and production systems.”
Ziemowit Dolkowski, co-founder of Salvamac, says: “Our growth has been greater than +50% in recent months, and it was a success that we really did not expect! A success that has not only concerned traditional and already-consolidated products, but the entire production range, and which has led us to the creation of something greater – Salvamac Group.
“Salvamac strongly believes in the future, in true values and in continuous progression,” says Christian. “The leading product of the Salvamac optimising saw line is the Salvapush 2000 automatic cross-cutting saw, which comes with a brand-new version of software that allows anyone to manage it simply and completely like a smartphone, with website graphics and all the practicality for setting data of a large touchscreen, in digital communication among all electronic components.
“Not only that, the recent developments in barcode data import and the relative JIT management systems (from the development of the customer’s order to the finished product) make it a unique solution on the market for production processes, even in single batches.
“Very flexible and cutting-edge technical solutions make it possible to communicate both upstream and downstream with company software management, thus creating fundamental principles of Industry 4.0. The new exclusive mechanical solutions are also present for both the cutting system and the pusher system – solutions that are showing all their potential and flexibility at the customers’ places of work via our machines. The applications of the machines in the sofa and special pallets sectors fully confirm the recent developments.
“Salvamac is not only about optimising saws, but also continuous research and development around the most traditional machines, bringing solutions with a great innovative impact.
“The evolution of Salvamac up-cut saws now offers an optional automatic retracting front protection guard – the innovative new system has been created to facilitate the handling of the pieces before and after cutting, without having to manage the workpiece on the infeed and outfeed table.
“The front protection of the Classic crosscutting saws series can disappear during the loading and unloading operations (position down), and can rise (position up) only during the cutting operation – providing maximum help for the operator, in maximum safety.
“Among the original developments by Salvamac is the Salvastop measuring stop device, a system that electronically manages the stopping and positioning of the boards or profiles to be cut, regardless of the material, with high speed and absolute precision, thanks to a state-of-the-art brushless electronic motor. Furthermore, the mechanical system has been designed not to require maintenance over time, while ensuring a high degree of robustness and precision.
“The new innovation on the aluminum beam allows the Salvastop to handle up to 7000mm of length and 6400mm of stroke. Due to an innovative technological concept, Salvamac has created a new anodised aluminum 100 x 100mm beam section, reinforced and with the thickness of the profile edge.
“Thanks to the considerable dimensions of this solution, the pusher carriage reaches a movement speed of up to 60m/min. The transmission system has a 32mm-wide toothed belt, with high-precision internal steel cables, ensuring a wide capacity and a very high positioning tolerance. The machined steel heads are robust and independent, designed to have a long life, highly reliable and precise.”
Ziemowit continues: “We have worked hard to create the exclusive software, very easy to use thanks to immediately understandable and effective, complete, powerful and flexible graphics. It includes five different sections and two different modes, Stop or Push – also using a S-PAD touchscreen in an excellent position for reading and programming, and not forgetting the included and installed Internet tele-service software.
“The compact Servo Drive electronic motor guarantees simplicity, reliability, durability and efficiency. With this innovative technology you can manage closed-loop positioning, checking the position at any time, even in case of heavy efforts and accidental external pressure.
“The motor, which is mounted in a pulling position, has a power of 11Nm, and the electrical and electronic inputs and outputs are integrated on the engine itself. Finally, the emergency and start buttons are ergonomically positioned, to facilitate the operator’s work.
“A number of real novelties that Christian defines as ‘our network and its strength’ will allow us to introduce new products for the solid wood industry every month – high-quality machines, as in our history, but at a price that allows more companies to choose the technological path.
“The strategy is clear – to optimise the process and use every possible country advantage to produce machines with the highest quality, at affordable prices for the customer. This is the reason for choosing the Salvamac brand – machines that are simple to use and with which it is easier to cut costs and increase profits. A true network creation that gives the missing added value to our customers and to the whole wood industry. We are ready for the new challenge.”
