Frameport doors are made of solid pine in a state-of-the-art facility in Caçador, a municipality located in the State of Santa Catarina, southern Brazil. Frameport is renowned for its high-quality and beautifully crafted doors which come in various styles and finishes.
System TM has designed and developed an elaborate solution that consists of four cross-cut lines, each of which consist of a MiCROTEC scanner, model GE301 and two optimizing Opti-Kap 5003 cross-cut saws – in total, four scanners and eight optimizing cross-cut saws. So far, two of the four lines have been installed, while the installation of the remaining two is set to take place soon. With just a little fine-tuning of the solution and an expanding of line operator experience, maximum production capacity will be achieved in just a matter of time.
Although this solution includes standard main machines, it is highly customized when it comes to the rest of its material handling system; particularly the material handling equipment. This has been custom-designed to process Frameport’s high volumes of workpieces with workpiece conditions that are intricate to some degree, as they are often curved and small in terms of thickness, width and length.
As for the optimizing Opti-Kap 5003 cross-cut saws, these have been custom-made by modifying the standard design of their cross-cutting units. This has proved to be highly valuable to Frameport, as the optimizing Opti-Kap 5003 cross-cut saws can now cut through thin lamellas with perfection and process much larger volumes than the standard Opti-Kap 5003 cross-cut saw.
