At LIGNA 2017, iBlade will be launching its new SawControl 800v2 Pro surveying system along with its new tool management software, Cutpedia, addressing visual issues with angle and geometry when the circular saw is used with specially developed lighting technology. For the very first time, tooth breakouts will also be able to be accurately assessed and analysed. The software asset management (S.A.M.) software also makes it possible to quickly and easily identify selected information with the press of a button, while eliminating the need to interact with the operator and manually pull out auxiliary lines – the required information will be simply displayed on a touchscreen.
Developed specially to simplify tool management and save time, functions for the Cutpedia software include warehouse management among other standard responsibilities. It is also possible to integrate Cutpedia into the automated network, thus allowing users to estimate running time and the running meter. Additionally, the software offers an automatic cost and benefit analysis for the either the items in production, down to the individual tool.
The SawControl 800v2 recognises the in precisely measuring the angles when using circular saw blades, tackling the issue with specially developed lighting technology, and allowing the sawtooth angle to be accurately measured. For the very first time, tooth breakouts will also be able to be accurately assessed and analysed with the SawControl 800v2.
The patented camera arrangement is also able to measure the radial angle for small tooth divisions. For conventional measurement methods, the camera will be along the tangent at a 90 degree angle to the central axis. Unfortunately, due to this design, in the case of small tooth divisions, the anterior tooth – which actually needs to be measured – will be concealed, making measurement impossible. The radial angle also can be easily distorted by the cutting angle, which can lead to inaccurate measurements. However, these shortcomings are easily compensated with the simultaneous imaging and interplay of all the cameras in the S.A.M. software.
The axis angle can easily be measured with a flat tooth. But with a change-tooth and high cutting angle, a large number of optical distortions can be corrected, which S.A.M corrects and compensates.
On top of that, the S.A.M. software also makes it possible to quickly and easily identify selected information with the press of a button – such as the information concerning tool life, surveying information, tool performance, and the necessary data, among other things – while eliminating the need to interact with the operator and manually pull out auxiliary lines. Instead, the required information will be simply displayed on a touchscreen.
The intersection width can only be determined with the change tooth if the tooth group is set in relation to one another. With the trapezoidal tooth, the trapezoid tooth will not be relevant to the cutting width. The conditions have been programmed into the S.A.M. software.
For concentric running, the tooth group can be divided, and each tooth tested individually. This ensures that tolerances can be narrowed and that outliers are more easily detected.
The new functions can also be used and retrofitted with new machines – the required information will be simply displayed on a touchscreen.
