Saw filing company introduces new grinding technology
By Colonial Saw Inc.
May 3, 2017 - Advanced woodworking and tool grinding machinery company Colonial Saw Inc. is introducing a new, hi-tech solution for sharpening a high volume of carbide saw blades. Saw mills, lumber manufacturers, and grinding and sharpening shops will benefit from its robot loading system that enables unattended and overnight grinding.
The Premium-Loader, an 8 axes grinding machine, is built by global pioneer ABM Grinding Technologies. Colonial Saw will formally introduce the new solution to the market in July at the AWFS show in Las Vegas, Nevada, North America's largest woodworking show. This new generation machine minimizes human labor with a robot and probing system, allowing for true unattended processing with superb accuracy and superior finish grind quality.
“We’re very excited to introduce this new technology. It will revolutionize workloads and deliver unprecedented cost savings, helping shops get ahead in an increasingly competitive industry,” said Dave Rakauskas, Vice President of Colonial Saw. “We have two U.S. customers who were so excited about its potential they purchased the Premium-Loader in advance of its formal introduction. Their feedback tells us being able to run Premium-Loader overnight with no personnel delivers dramatic productivity increases and boosts the bottom line.”
Designed to meet the increasing demand for automation by today’s circular saw manufacturing and grinding service centers, Premium-Loader offers vast range of production capacity for woodworking blades. It delivers a high ease-of-use factor with a user-friendly control system, web camera monitoring, live error notification and a familiar Windows platform. Shops will also appreciate its compact footprint and efficient power consumption.
