SAUK RAPIDS, Minn. - SNX Technologies has introduced the nVision System2 contour edgebander,
The U.S.-manufactured semi-automatic contour edgebander uses hot melt EVA adhesives to offer non-stop banding and edge trimming production, using a unique twin vacuum arm design. It is also a semi-finalist in the IWF 2016 Challengers Award recognition program, and will be on view at IWF 2016 in SNX Technologies Inc. Booth 6569.
The nVision System2 builds on the successful design of SNX’s original single vacuum arm machine, the nVision, introduced in 2015. Both machines have separate edgebanding and trimming stations and each can band large parts up to 8 feet long and heavy ones up to 230 lbs.
The System2, with its dual vacuum arms, allow two operators to more effectively band and trim parts – especially large or long shapes requiring large swings - twice as productively as with a single arm machine. A pneumatic part transfer station accepts finished banded panels with foot pedal vacuum arm release, leaving the operator able to return to banding a new panel. An empty trimming station arm can then move under the elevated panel and receive it by lowering it via a dedicated foot pedal.
The System2 uses the same patented and patent-pending technologies found on the original nVision including the TRIAX 3-axis “floating” laser joint sensing system, and Rapidset rotary guide shoe turret setup for trimming different tape thicknesses. The System2 also shares the same large touch-screen control unit, undermounted Armordrive Kevlar serpentine belt drive for smooth, quiet spindle/roller operation, and a laser-assisted glue pot level monitor with automatic fill function.
