A new fully automated saw for cutting composite panels.
Design, build and install a new circular saw for cutting rock wall filled composite panels, in replace of their existing line which relied on extensive manual handling.
The whole system was fully interlocked in a stand alone, purpose built housing to ensure no unauthorised access during production.
This also reduced manual handling to zero, with minimal pre production preparation from one operator.
The new system was fully integrated with Isoclad's previous production line, which ran at around 1.8 metres per minute, at a start stop space, to a new system which runs at 3.8 metres per minute, at a continuous rate - over a 200% increase in output.
This system catered to a maximum panel specification of 1200mm width.
