The Retro C Penumatic System Overview

The Pneumatic system consists of all of the air-actuated valves.

  • The blade brakes all contain air cylinders for safety during an e-stop event.
  • The lumber stops use air brakes.
  • The carriage movements utilize air brakes.

The Retro C has 6 air valves, three on the stationary side and three on the carriage side.
