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 at least 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.

Automated Tightener / Flattener & Overhead Loosening System:

The Taylor Automated Front End is designed to double the operators production (pictured above and left). The Taylor Super Automated front end Increases that already doubled production by another 20% by utilizing an overhead loosener (pictured above and to the right) that loosens the clamps a section ahead. 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. While this is happening, the loosener is working, up above, and loosening a section ahead.  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
