Solid Wood Technologies features Kentwood moulders, grinders and ripsaws, as well as System TM optimizing systems--part of a comprehensive offering for the processing of solid wood components.
Segmented processing is also practiced when multiple gang ripsaws do not process the same cutting bill or when a gang ripsaw changes blade-spacing combinations while processing a single cutting order.
To make matters worse, the first optimization step at the ripsaw often does no t take into account unusable areas (character marks) within the board, nor cutting-bill requirements.
Eagle also offers custom machining systems, material handling, vision scanning, controls, the Ripmaster optimizing fenceless ripsaw feeder, Talon optimizing cutoff saw, blower fans and hydraulic power units.
Processing began by gang-ripping the boards on a 24-inch Mereen-Johnson 424 gang ripsaw equipped with Barr-Mullin Compu-Rip gang-ripsaw optimizer software for finding optimum rip decisions.
When production demands outgrow the capabilities of a single straight-line ripsaw, manufacturers have two options: they can add more straight-line ripsaws, with additional labor required, or upgrade to a gang ripsaw.
