The flexibility of the MatchPoint BLADE™ wood processing system may be its most valuable and, yet, underrated feature. Because every plant has different customers and truss demographics, every plant has different processes that work for them.
This system can fit perfectly into almost any workflow or process. It can be installed and productive within a matter of days. You can continue business as usual, but with a newer, faster, more reliable saw and material handling system. But… why continue business as usual when you can do business better?
Using the flexibility of the MatchPoint BLADE, it may be possible to boost your production processes and your profit margins. The variety of solutions available require a conversation with your MiTek representative to fully understand the possibilities for your business.
The largest gain will be realized in a plant that does not currently have a linear saw, or that has a linear saw but continues to cut in batches. Adding a linear saw to an existing component saw, or even replacing the component saw altogether depending on your truss makeup, opens up a whole new realm of possibilities and process changes. Building "truss-by-truss" or "panel-by-panel" doesn't have to be a slow, overwhelming task anymore. The saw can cut all the lumber for each truss or panel before going on to the next. Or it can cut all the lumber for each job, optimizing the lumber even further. Either way, sorting is much faster than traditional batch cutting, and therefore improves productivity ratios at the tables.
Many truss manufacturers are already enjoying the benefits of MatchPoint PLANX
™ automated jigging, but are not realizing the full benefit because they are still cutting in batches. The nature of automated jigging drives the need for truss-to-truss manufacturing. Like BLADE
, the PLANX
will improve productivity in any environment. But give the PLANX
a truss-to-truss cut - sort - build workflow, and your production will take off. In order to do this, you need the flexibility of the MatchPoint BLADE
