Gang Sawing Foam Prep for VARTM
Accudyne Systems, Inc. has designed and built several different gang saw cutting machines for a variety of different applications.
The largest machine was a fully automated piece of equipment for cutting feeder grooves in a rigid, closed-cell, foam block to aid in resin flow in a SCRIMP-composite processing application. This machine would feed and cut blocks up to 8 feet wide by 10 inches thick and simultaneously place up to 96 continuous one-eighth-inch grooves on one-inch centers on all sides of the foam block. We built a similar machine capable of feeding blocks up to 4 feet wide. For other applications Accudyne has built custom table-saw machines with 48 saw blades ganged onto a single drive shaft.
Accudyne also designed and built several other machines for sawing and cutting different unique features onto various substrates. These included custom router type tables and vertical-axis table saws for rebating edges of material.
When it's time to automate your cutting process, Accudyne can make the chips fly.
