As with all Taylor Clamp Carriers, smaller machines can be expanded as production requirements grow. Many customers will start with a (20) Section machine, and then expand that machine into a (40) Section or (60) section in the future, reusing approximately 90% or more of the existing components. Taylor’s goal is to grow with you through the years!!

Automated Tightener / Flattener System:

The Taylor Automated Front End is designed to double the operators production. Utilizing PLC software and sensors, the Tightener / Flattener will index across the series of clamps, and automatically engage, flatten, and tighten the clamps while the operator is organizing the next batch of material for the Glue Applicator. The software also has a “Sequencing Program” that allows you to set a distinct path for the Tightener setting an order of clamps to tighten that makes the most sense for your products. Adjustable tightening and flattening pressure make this machine the most versatile and efficient design in Taylors’ arsenal.

Motor Drive for Rotation of the Sections:

The motor drive rotates the Clamp Carrier from section to section. It is offered with a pneumatic or hydraulic (shown) motor. The Motor Drive worm gear reducer insures controlled indexing from section to section, even when rotating an unbalanced load. The Motor Drive is controlled by a Joystick, on the Front Rest of the machine, and can rotate forward or reverse. The Motor Drive speeds rotation of the machine with precise control and minimizes operator fatigue.

High End, American Made Hydraulic System

The Clamp Carrier hydraulic system incorporates a proportional valve controlled by the programmable controller. By using a series of sensors and inputs, the controller monitors and measures the traverse speed of the Clamp Tightener carriage, the rotational speed of the Clamp Tightener, and the speed of the Clamp Carrier rotation. These measurements are taken on every cycle during normal operation and speeds are automatically adjusted up or down without operator or maintenance intervention. This upgrade take a huge step towards a maintenance free machine
