  • Silvana Gets Rave Reviews For New ‘Triplematic’ Saw Chain Sharpener

    You may already have heard about the Triplematic Automatic Chain Sharpener, Silvana’s newest member of the much-admired family of saw chain sharpeners from Markusson introduced just last fall. The Triplematic has met with rave reviews from early customers, and here’s a few reasons why:

    • It’s so easy to use – just set and start
    • It frees up more time – sharpening the cutting edge, gullet and raker in just one cycle
    • It allows faster cutting – increasing possible chain speed through unique gullet sharpening
    • The chain sharpens sharper than new and without overheated blue teeth
    • It handles stiff chains with its new tensioning system
    • It pays back your investment in next to no time

    The NEW Triplematic builds on the successes of the super-efficient Grindomatic V12—renowned among shop owners and contractors alike for its workhorse reliability and ease of operation—and last year’s new entry, the 3/4″ chain specialist Combimatic. The Triplematic is an even more efficient fully-automatic saw chain sharpening machine, and the only one of its kind which grinds the cutting link at three key points—cutting edge, raker, and gullet. The result is a razor sharp and faster cutting chain.


    Additionally, the Triplematic is a potential profit-centre for shop owners too, able to effortlessly and tirelessly sharpen chains like never before for their customers, and with the absolute minimum of supervision. This has very much been the case with the Grindomatic V12.


    The new Triplematic is value-packed with standard equipment, features and innovations that include a stand, link counter, 110V to 12V converter pack, and a unique new air-powered system to stretch the chain for absolute precision sharpening. See it in action on our website at www.silvanatrading.com

    From what we’ve heard from our customers so far, and from those who’ve paid considerably more for lesser machines in the past, it’s the ultimate in chain-sharpening technology today. The Triplematic is engineered to perform, built to last, and priced to repay the investment many times over its extended service life. And we back it up with a guarantee and service promise you can count on, 100%.
