Original Press Release:
SCOTCHMAN® Introduces Advanced Feed System
Scotchman® Industries announces their new Advanced Feed System. It allows companies to increase productivity, decrease set-up time, reduce operator error and eliminate waste.
Scotchman president, Jerry Kroetch, said, "We are really excited about this new product. The Advanced Feed System, coupled with a Scotchman circular cold saw turns your semi-automatic machine into a fully automated production machine. It is really easy for any operator to enter cut lists into the controller. Next, secure the material in the indexing clamp and hit start. That's all there is to it. The Advanced Feed System automatically moves your material to position, automatically clamps the material, and cycles the machine with +/- 0.004" repeatable accuracy, cut after cut."
Operators can manually enter dimensions into the controller or pull a cut list from the controller, powered by TigerStop; it stores up to 99 programs. Another option is downloading cut list information directly from your PC - not only does this speed production, but it also reduces the chance of operator error.
One-off cuts are easy, too, just key in the desired cut length in inches, fractions, or metric, and push start. The automatic stop moves to position. Kroetch says, "The Advanced Feed System will cut production time in half, virtually eliminating set-up time. Now, operators no longer need to use a tape measure or set and adjust manual stops."
The Scotchman Advanced Feed System can be used as a programmable stop system or a fully automatic programmable push feed system with the optional material clamp.
Eliminate your scrap by using the optional optimizing software. You can pull out any piece of material, even scrap material, and then enter the clear stock length into the controller. The system calculates how to best optimize the material for the highest yield.
