The Automated Clamp Carrier wood working clamps system is the industry standard for high production edge gluing. The Automated machine doubles operator productivity with its automatic cycle which tightens the clamps on new wood stock, rotates the machine, and loosens the clamps on wood panels to be removed. This allows the operator to spend 100% of their time preparing and loading stock.
Taylor's Super Automated Clamp Carrier design increases the productivity of the machine by 20% without any change in operation or additional floor space. The industrial wood clamps machine has a separate loosening station above the operator which loosens the wood clamps one row before the panels are removed from the machine. This shortens the cycle time of the machine by 15 seconds which equates to one extra hour of production per shift. The technology used to do this is from our Dual Automated wood clamp machine where we have dozens of machines in operation in factories across the U.S.
Production is based on cycle time and panel size. Assuming that each section is curing 3 panels whose dimensions are 24" x 24" (60cm x 60cm) and assuming a cycle time of 75 seconds, production per shift equals:
=4 ft^2 (.36 m^2)
=12 ft^2 (1.1 m^2)
=12 ft^2 x 320 cycles or 4608 ft^2/shift
=1.1 m^2 x 320 cycles or 422 m^2/shift
