system is used in conjunction with the
Busellato Optima router.
“We machine all panels on this
system,” president Jim Mammina says.
“Whether it is a fully nested casework
project or a paneling job, all product is
processed through this machine. This is
much faster and (requires) a lot less movement of parts than the conventional saw-PTP system. We move directly from the
Optima to either the Omal borer/inserter,
the edgebander or assembly.”
Mammina says that the company now
does not need two people on the nested
machine. The system can be used for
any panel up to 4 x 10 for the company’s
casework, nurse stations, reception
desks and other panel products.
In addition to the CNC machine
itself, the components that comprise the
Linear Flow system are:
