Laser Opti-Sizer Upgrade

Laser Opti-Sizer

The Taylor Opti-Sizer was introduced at the 1988 IWF Show in Atlanta. Though the original won a Challengers Award that year, new technology in ultrasonics and computers lead us to a major redesign in 1994. Many customers purchased and installed the upgrade.

Technology continues to evolve, and so does the Opti-Sizer. Beginning in May 2009, we are proud to announce the latest development in our panel sizing machinery -- The Laser Opti-Sizer.

Utilizing the same rugged mechanical design that lasts decades, the Laser Opti-Sizer Upgrade can be fit onto any previously manufactured Opti-Sizer frame.

Upgrade Kit includes:

  • A new control box
  • PC Laptop Computer Control.
  • New self calibrating software
  • New laser sensor and bracketing

The advantages are:

  • Faster operation - (25-125% faster)
  • Greater accuracy
  • Improved reliability
  • Less down time

History of Opti-Sizers

#33A-#33B introduced in 1988
The measuring bridge is equipped with two sensors, one pointed up, and the other pointed down.

#33J-#33L introduced in 1989
The measuring sensor is connected to a blue box on the side of the measuring bridge. The individual slots are separated by rectangular metal flags.

#33M introduced in 1994
The measuring sensor is wired directly into the control box on the side of the Opti-Sizer (no blue box). The individual slots are separated by rectangular metal flags.

#33N introduced in 2009
The measuring sensor changes from ultra-sonic technology to Laser Sensing technology. An option is added for either a touch screen interface or a full Apple Computer Control. These changes allow speed, accuracy and reliability improvements over the older design.
