Bander Upgrades

 
Aluminum Sleeve Guides Upgrade Aluminum Sleeve Guides

The original design for the lower sleeve guide used rivets to secure the guides to the mounting bar. The rivets could loosen and cause sleeve errors. Without removing the sleeve guide from the machine, repairing is difficult and time consuming. The Aluminum Sleeve Guide upgrade features guide plates that are bolted on from the back for easier adjustments, eliminating the use of rivets.

Benefits Upgrades Includes
  1. Eliminate sleeve errors due to loose rivets
  1. Aluminum sleeve guides
  2. Mounting bars

The Speith Coupling Clamping Sleeves upgrade eliminates the roll pins which break and cause carriage misalignment, binding up the carriage. Speith couplings are also easier to adjust.

Benefits Upgrades Includes
  1. Reduce carriage misalignment due to the roll pins
  2. Easier adjustments
  1. Speith couplings
  2. Gears
  3. Shaft
Sleeve Hold Vacuum Assist Upgrade Sleeve Hold Vacuum Assist

The original design used a different style vacuum generator that allowed the sheet to fall off the vacuum holes while the glue was being applied to the sheet. The Sleeve Hold Vacuum Assist upgrade has a newer style vacuum generator which increases holding ability.

Benefits Upgrades Includes
  1. Sheet adheres to surface better
  1. Vacuum generator
  2. Regulator & solenoid
Servo Drive Paddle Conveyor Servo Drive Paddle Conveyor

The Servo Drive Paddle Conveyor upgrade has faster cycle rates and a more positive positioning of the log.

Benefits Upgrades Includes
  1. Faster cycle rates
  1. Servo motor with cables
  2. Gear box
  3. Sheaves and belts
Rubber Sleeve Hold Bumpers Upgrade Rubber Sleeve Hold Bumpers

The original design of the sleeve hold bumpers used a spring that would fatigue and break. The Rubber Sleeve Hold Bumpers upgrade features bumpers that are flexible and unbreakable.

Benefits Upgrades Includes
  1. Bumpers do not break
  1. Sleeve stop bumpers
  2. Shaft
  3. Mounts
Programmable Hot Melt Glue Controller Upgrade Programmable Hot Melt Glue Controller

The Programmable Hot Melt Glue Controller upgrade is quicker and easier to change times for multiple products. This eliminates the glue template, proximity switches, and multiple glue guns.

Benefits Upgrades Includes
  1. Eliminates the need for a glue template, prox switches and multiple glue guns
  1. Programmable controller
  2. Encoder
  3. Encoder drive
Paddle Conveyor Belt Addition Upgrade Paddle Conveyor Belt Addition

The original design used only the paddle to transfer the product. The Paddle Conveyor Belt Addition upgrade features belts which assist the log into the bander and helps reduce the bunching of the log as it’s being transferred.

Benefits Upgrades Includes
  1. Reduces bunching of log during transfers
  1. Belt drive assembly
  2. Belts
  3. Guides
Larger Separator Carriage Brake Upgrade Larger Separator Carriage Brake

Machines that have the TSE-600 separator carriage brake would occasionally have problems with the brake slipping and the carriage moving out of position if the servo output power or air supply were turned off. The Larger Separator Carriage Brake upgrade has larger brakes with improved holding power, so the carriages won’t slip or drift down out of position.

Benefits Upgrades Includes
  1. Reduces chances of slipping
  1. Larger brake
  2. Bushing
  3. Shaft
Hydraulic Transfer Thru System Upgrade Hydraulic Transfer Thru System

The original bander design used cams to operate the bander functions. The Hydraulic Transfer Thru System upgrade gives the ability to push higher bulk products through the bander, eliminates the costly cams and drive components, and reduces maintenance costs.

Benefits Upgrades Includes
  1. Send higher product configurations through the bander
  1. Hydraulic pump
  2. Hydraulic Cylinder and hoses
  3. Transfer thru arm
  4. Solenoids Mounts
Count Trip Relocation Upgrade Count Trip Relocation

The original design had the count trip mechanisms on the outside of the frames with mechanical linkages connecting them to the trip mechanisms mounted on the inside of the frames. The Count Trip Relocation upgrade eliminates all of the moving components on the outside of the frames and provides a more positive separation.

Benefits Upgrades Includes
  1. Eliminates moving components outside the frame
  2. Positive separation
  1. Cylinder mounts
  2. Plumbing
  3. Electrical Programming
Count System Phasing Upgrade Count System Phasing

Some machines required that the separation be tuned to a set run speed. A significant change in machine speed would require the separation to be retuned to the current machine speed. The Count System Phasing upgrade gives the ability to easily phase the count finger timing to any run speed for positive separation at various machine speeds.

Benefits Upgrades Includes
  1. Phase count finger timing at any run speed
  1. Encoder and cables
  2. Sheaves and belts
  3. Electrical programming
Compression Plate Safety Lockup Addition Compression Plate Safety Lockup Addition

The Compression Plate Safety Lockup Addition upgrade protects the compression plate from falling due to a loss of air pressure which will prevent personal injury.
