center has the latest equipment plus "tried and true" work horses. We offer Saw Filer Vocational training in both the Manual and
Automated approaches to saw maintenance.
Saw sharpening is one example of our manual and automated
technology approach in our 1,600 SF Bandsaw
Training Center / Showroom. We have loops for both a cam
driven Armstrong #4 Sharpener with Control Tower and an Armstrong
CNC VariSharp. Our next
generation in wet Bandsaw Sharpening - the Talon P-3 computer controlled
sharpener - is now also in place.
The dual training approach - manual and automatic - carries
over to both Swaging and Benching as well.
The Technical center has both manual swage and shape tools and the
automatic Armstrong AutoSwage. Students bench saws on our manual bench and then load it on the 095 AB to get confirmation they have acheived their level, tension and back goals.
will be trained with both a manual Armstrong #81 Bench and the Simonds Model 095
Automated Bench. We also use cameras and large screen monitors so each student and the instructors can see exactly what the student working on the blade sees.
The Wright bandsaw guide block milling machine is operational and ready to demonstrate. Stellite tipping equipment and dual side sharpening machines are also planned.
Meanwhile, equipment and course materials are underway for our 1,000 sf
Circle Saw Training Center. Equipment displayed the Atlanta Trade Show this summer is on site and being installed. We plan to offer our first Circle Saw course early in Q1 2020.
And finally, we encourage customers to
schedule an appointment to come and see this equipment operate and “test drive”
it themselves. Bring your own saws or we have some for you to use.
