Infeed station added to automated saw
TigerStop has added the
AutoLoader automatic infeed station for integration
with the TigerSaw 2000
saw system. With the station, an operator can load
five pieces of material at a
time, increasing operator
capacity for performing
value-added tasks, such as sorting finished parts.
The unit can accommodate material from 4 to 30 ;. long and can be configured with up to seven stations in either 3- or 6-;. lengths.
Each station is designed to load material forward with a weight capacity of
up to 100 lbs. per set of loading station dogs. Sensors allow the loading station
to recognize when material is pressed against the back fence, signaling that
the material is ready to be processed through the saw and to continue feeding
material until more is needed or the cut list is complete.

Laser drilling system produces linear,
cylindrical patterns in 2-D, 3-D parts
Prima Power Laserdyne has introduced Smart-Perf™ for programming and laser drilling of
simple to complex patterns of holes in linear
and cylindrical paths in 2-D and 3-D parts.
The system’s reduced cycle time allows for
on-the-fly laser drilling. There is no need for acceleration and deceleration at
each hole location. On-the-fly drilling is suitable for percussion drilling small-diameter (0.008- to 0.02-in.) holes in turbine engine combustors. Thousands
of holes can be produced quickly over a 3-D surface in a single setup, reports
the manufacturer. The system also is used for producing patterns of holes involving both trepanning (cutting) and standard percussion drilling (move to a
location and create the hole by delivering a sequence of pulses).
Complex patterns involving nonuniform hole spacing and varying hole size
can be produced. Common applications involve drilling a pattern around a
pre-existing machined feature and creating custom spray patterns based on
an array of holes with nonuniform spacing, size, and shape.
