POLAR’s P.A.C.E. Cutting System ‘Cuts’ Trimming Time in Half
POLAR’s integrated cutting system, called P.A.C.E. (Polar Automation for Cutting Efficiency), uses revolutionary AutoTurn automated turning technology and AutoTrans automated loading and gripping technology to execute precision 4-side trims and strip cuts without human intervention.
