  • Sequence of operation:

Saw head will be in the home position, honeycomb will be loaded on the table against the two fixed fences and the moveable fence will be moved to secure the part. The operator will adjust the head to the desired degree of cut. The number of cuts and the thickness of cut will be programmed into the PLC and the saw will begin the cutting cycle. At the end of the first cut the saw will stop allowing the operator to remove the top piece and start the next cut cycle (saw will return to the home position, adjust the elevation to the next programmed thickness and perform the cut). The sequence will repeat until the numbers of cuts entered have been satisfied.
