Blade-to-Machine Data Transfer Available on Simonds Saws

By on

WESPA, the European partner of Simonds Saw, Fitchburg, Mass., has introduced the ability to produce instant “blade-to-machine” data transfer of machine-specific cutting parameters for its custom band saw blades program, Individual Performance Cutting.

This innovative instant data transfer technology directly supports the Industry 4.0 concept and is an industry-first for band saw blade manufacturers.

By using a mobile device and scanning a QR code on the saw blade or blade box, saw operators can point the scan to the machine to transfer a complete, unique data set so the machine can begin cutting. “We were excited to have introduced our instant blade-to-machine technology at EMO this year, where it was extremely well received,” says David Miles, president of Simonds Saw.

The IPC Solution from Simonds Saw uses a Band Saw Blade simulator program to improve sawing productivity up to 60 percent by significantly improving the performance, productivity and ROI of a user’s sawing operation. The simulator enables a user to model their sawing application and compare the results obtained with conventional saw technology to unique blade/tooth configurations designed specifically by Simonds/WESPA for the user’s application.
