Sizing controls for Log Carriages from set shaft to full hydraulic systems, new and retro fits.
New equipment in conjunction with McKeeCo Engineering sizing axis use Bosch Servo/Proportional Valves with MTS position Transducer.
Retro fitted to the older style set shaft carriage require a rewind potentiometer to be fitted to a knee/head. If a Rewind Potentiometer was previously used we renew the Potentiometer. A brake motor with a VFD/VSD is used to give greater speed control and accuracy for sizing. Manufacture's we have fitted new sizing systems to; Integrated Engineering, McKee Engineering, Gibson and Isles Forge Equipment.
Console Size can vary depending on application. New Equipment tends to have two consoles 700h x 500w x 210d that the operator sits between. Retro Fit we try to use the same dimensions as the existing console where possible but have found most to be 300h x 600w x 210d with a standing operator position.
Most Consoles supplied have 8 Sizing Button with LED indication and an A/B group toggle switch giving quick access to 16 sizes. The Operator Interface adds the ability to select between 4 different Sizing Programs in giving a possible 64 different sizes.
Other Ancillary controls can be added to console e.g. motor stop starts as required.
