The Pillar Machine PLT (Panel Lay-up Table) will speed up, improve color/grain match and increase yield when producing edge glued panels. The machine utilizes CNC positioned lasers to show the operator the required size. Providing this visual representation of the correct panel size will allow the operator to concentrate on creating the highest quality panel with the least amount of waste. The table is mounted at a 45 degree angle giving the operator an ergonomically friendly position to sort through panel staves and find the best match of color, grain and yield. The standard table will allow for panels up to 36″ x 60″, different table sizes are available upon request.
With the popular Accu-Link option, once panel staves are combined, the operator tells the software that the panel is completed. That panel is then removed from the open order list. To help automate the rest of the downstream panel production, the PLT can be equipped with a bar code printer to give panel information to machines that will size, sand or profile the panel. The software is also capable of bi-directional communication, so that the office can be constantly updating the open order list with new orders and check to see which panels have gone on to panel glue up. This ability to monitor and adjust production flow will decrease lead times. If you’re searching for a wooden door or cabinet door machine, look no further than the PLT.
