Everything is about to change at Ligna 2017

Introduction of New Saw Series Opti-Kap 5100

System TM has always strived to provide the best in all respects. With the development of our new saw series, the Opti-Kap 5100, we are getting even closer to perfection.

Proceeding from Opti-Kap 5000, perhaps the world’s best optimizing crosscut saw ever made, the new optimization cross-cut saw series, Opti-Kap 5100, has been designed in the following manner: more user-friendly in terms of operation and service, stronger in terms of construction and equipped with improved intelligent control software. Due to these improvements, the Opti-Kap 5100 is capable of achieving better performance.

Thanks to new mechanical initiatives and intelligent management software, the intelligence of our saw has been enhanced to ensure minimal downtime and to automatically resolve errors caused by workpiece condition, operator or machine error.

System TM has more than 30 years of experience in the development, production and service of high-speed computer-controlled cross-cut saws of great durability and performance. The Opti-Kap 5100 series are developed based on extensive experience which has been built over the last 30 years, with high emphasis on performance, power and minimum maintenance needs. Ultimately, we seek to provide customers the highest return on their investment.

The Opti-Kap 5100 saw series will be showcased in operation with Microtec scanners at Ligna 2017. A standard solution including a Microtec scanner, model Goldeneye GE302, will be operating in connection with one optimizing cross-cut saw, model Opti-Kap 5100. Another solution will be represented by a fully automatic Opti-Solution line including an automated infeed system, model Opti-Feed 6000 Vack, a Microtec scanner, model Goldeneye GE 502, two optimizing cross-cut saws, model Opti-Kap 5100, an automated stacking system, model Opti-Stack 3000, and finally, automatic loading of items in vertical positions, ready to be fed into a vertical finger jointing machine.


Opti-Solution at Ligna 2017
Once again, System TM will be demonstrating an Opti-Solution in full operation at Ligna 2017.
The Opti-Solution will be displayed in full operation, underscoring our primary focus on optimization of staff and wood resources. This year, the line will be consisting of automatic feeding, scanning, cross-cutting and stacking at a high speed without the need for operator intervention.

Formed on the basis of our slogan, optimization of staff and wood resources, as well as Industry 4.0, our software and hardware have been designed to be much more intelligent in terms of resolving errors made by operators, workpiece conditions or the machines. As a result, they automatically resolve these errors before they occur.

Starting from Ligna 2017, our software will be developed to analyze workpiece data of multiple main machines. Thus, our software will be able to respond to workpiece data based on the subsequent machine settings. It will also be able to change the flow of workpieces before the occurrence of errors and ultimately, prevent long stop periods.

In compliance with the above-mentioned, each individual machine and system will be designed to be less dependent on human intervention in the future. As such, they will be able to self-regulate and self-operate automatically in order to achieve maximum line utilization.

Our data collection system, the Opti-View, ensures and collects performance data from each individual machine included in the line. System TM and our customers will be able to collect and analyze crucial data from their line. Consequently, this will allow them to adjust and maintain their line to attain optimal performance. Finally, to ensure flawless line performance, the Opti-View will become a standard integrated option for all new large Opti-Solutions.

In conclusion, System TM will be focusing on the continuous creation of more intelligent machines of minimum operator intervention in order to eliminate the contingency of operator error and avoid operator dependency. Using our intelligent machinery, we will minimize downtime and consequently, utilize the number of available work minutes in the most efficient manner possible.

In 2015, System TM developed and introduced a horizontal finger jointing machine, the Opti-Joint H-200. This was System TM’s first move toward achieving a complete high-speed finger jointing product line-up. As the introduction of the Opti-Joint H-200 resulted in great success, System TM expanded its product portfolio with a new vertical finger jointing machine, the Opti-Joint V-8. Thus, both the Opti-Joint H-200 and the Opti-Joint V-8 finger jointing machines will be presented at Ligna through brochures and video material.
