Anthon Batch Size One

Industry 4.0 and batch size 1 production are phrases front and center in the manufacturing world these days. Combining Anthon’s longitudinal and multi-blade throughfeed saws in an integrated system with supporting components, it is possible to realize up to 20 cut parts per minute. Each of these parts can be different sizes! Pre-prepared cut lists in conjunction with parts handling and vacuum traversing stations make Batch Size 1 production a real possibility for today’s wood panel processors. This application is ideal for kitchen, bathroom, and office manufacturing and more!

How the MES System Works

The Anthon MES System retrieves the cutting patterns from the postprocessor and tracks each panel through the entire production process. Synchronization is constantly monitored, and data feedback is always readily available in real time. Material is moved over table supports via pushers that operates from above. When the saw units are adjusted, the upper pressures also move to the new positions. The adjustment of the saw units and the adjustment of the upper pressure is done by servo motors. This ensures that the saw unit and the upper pressure are always on top of each other, thus achieving the highest cutting accuracy. Positioning of the new cutting position is carried out instantly during the return travel of the top pressure, which transports material over the saw station
