Automatic Vertical Mitre Saw Cutting Process

AMP offers a complete Double Mitre Saw Cutting and Joining Process with up to six process stations including material handling, material gripper system for moving moulding to cutting station, double mitre cutting with two 350mm saw blades, movement of cut pieces, and the process completion with frame joining.

The system is well suited for production double mitre cutting for picture and photo frames as well as any other moulding or trim board assembled by way of 45 degree mitre cutting.

Sophisticated, but simple and practical, the system is made three major components, Vertical or Horizontal Material Feeder, Cutting Station, with two saw blades fixed at a 45 degree angle, and an Unloading Belt with Kicker allowing cut pieces to be pushed aside to avoid any damage.

For a complete automated solution to streamline your business operation, intergrate the TA-350 Auto Saw with the AF-500 Frame Joining Robot

Process Steps and Operations

Step #1 - Material Feeder - Vertical and Hortizonal Available

The Vertical Feeder is best suited for cutting operations where the moulding is easily stackable and minimal set up is required for moulding changeover. This option requires a minimal amout of floor space and comes in lengths of 3000mm, 4000mm, 5000mm or 6000mm.

The Horizontal Feeder option is is best suited for cutting operations having multiple moulding sizes and profiles, no additional set-up is required after the initial installation for moulding changeover.

Step #2 - Material Loading

Material is automatically loaded to be cut from the feeder.

Step #3 - Advanced Material Gripper System

A Material Gripper System (Primary) is used to provide moulding part movement into the Saw Cutting Station, an optional Material Gripper System (Advanced) is also available and sold as a operating option, and is used in conjunction with the primary gripper for minimizing moulding scrap and to increase overall material yield rate.

Step #4 - Double Mitre Saw Cutting

Double Mitre Cutting - Equipped with a Speed Feed Servo System, the TA-350 has a production output range from 1,500 to 1,900 cut pieces per hour. Actual customer production rate is dependent on a number of variables — length of moulding at in-feed stage, length of cut, moulding cross section and type of moulding.

A Vertical and Horizontal Clamping System within the cutting station firmly holes the moulding during the cutting process giving higher accuracy and a superior cut edge quality.

Step #5 - Part Unloading Belt

Belt allows the removal of Cut Pieces

  • Equipped with “Part Present” Photocell
  • Kicks Cut Pieces to Pneumatic Conveyor Belt for Step #6 of the process

Step #6 - Step by Step Conveyor (optional)
  • Step by Step Movement of Cut Pieces
  • Moves Pieces to Frame Joining Area
  • 600mm wide x 2000mm long

System Breakdown and Part Number Configurations and Options

When ordering a TA-350 Auto Saw System, you will need to purchase by major sections of the system. The basic system consist of the Double Mitre Saw (P/N 063004420), the selection of a Material Hopper (either Vertical or Horizontal), plus the unloading belt.

The TA-350 offers a number of different processing options that can be added to the system. All options can be field upgrades purchased at a later date except for the Advanced Gripper System (P/N 063004431), this option must be added at time of original order being placed for the TA-350.

TA-350 Saw - Production Runoff Requirements

Prior to shipping the TA-350 Saw to the customer location, AMP will require the customer to ship to our manufacturing facility a certain amount moulding for machine runoff and final calibration.

If the customer has a variety of moulding to be processed through the saw, AMP will require moulding of all the various sizes to be shipped to our facility.

Based on the customer’s moulding profile design, this proposal does not include pricing for any special part fixture tooling required for use with either the Vertical or Horizontal Material Feeders. If needed, additional tooling will be quoted separately.
