Rip Saw Optimization by Cameron Automation

Keywords: Rip Saw Optimization

Our research has shown that the maximum yield you can cut from a board increases by an average of 2.5% when you can adjust the angle of the board before it passes into the gang rip saw. Because of this fact, all of our Cameron Automation Rip Infeeds allow the board to be scanned and accurately positioned at the proper angle for increased production and reduced waste. Cameron Automation now has 3 models that work with either fixed or movable arbor gang saws. The Quick Rip, the Automated Opti-Rip, and now introducing "The Skew" rip saw optimization systems help to reduce manufacturing costs, reduce labor, and increase production and overall profit.

Chop Saw Optimization by Cameron Automation

For even closer tolerances the Quick Chop chop saw optimization system offers the option of a lineal encoder for accuracy of plus or minus .010. Wirelessly network with other Quick Chops and the Quick Rip to collectively work on jobs and increase yield. The servo controlled pusher/scanner then scans the board for length and the location of the crayon marks.


James L. Taylor - Glue Mixing

It saves labor and material by automatically pumping precisely metered quantities of PVA resin and catalyst from their original containers, mixing them without using any intermediate containers, and conveying the mixed adhesive to up to four independently controlled outlets. By adjusting the strokes of the catalyst and waste water pumps, catalyst and waste water-to-resin ratios can be adjusted from 0% to 10%.


James L. Taylor - Glue Application

The Glue Applicator conveyer is started and stopped automatically via an electric eye either at its infeed end or at its outfeed end. A safety slip clutch protects the conveyor chain against damage when careless operation results in wood jamming the conveyor. The Taylor Conveyorized Glue Applicator with Return Conveyor is an automated glue application and stock handling system.
