Compact sash

Ph: 440/248-4009

The compact sash line from Stürtz Machinery Inc. can produce up to 900 welded and cleaned sash per shift with one operator in less than 1,200 square feet of space, the supplier reports. The line consists of two horizontal four-point sash welders—each automatically unloaded via a single tier belt system. Welded sash are transferred onto a twin tier buffer and transport table which separates the squares and feeds them into an infeed belt buffer. The buffer conveyor then feeds each square into an automated four-head pass through sash corner cleaner. The programmable, CNC machine cleans all four corners of the sash at the same time. Compact tooling arrangements allow for four-head cleaning on sash as small as 12 inches by 12 inches. The welders can be mounted on a common base and conveying systems are kept to a minimum length, which still allows for adequate buffering through the line.
