GED's Twin-Station Corner Cleaner Cuts Cycle Times

GED Integrated Solutions of Twinsburg, Ohio, has redesigned the PC4000 twin-station programmable corner cleaner to decrease cycle times by an average of 32 percent over the earlier version. A new control platform delivers smoother, faster motion control to reduce cleaning cycle times and ensure better aesthetics and strength. The new platform also allows integration of GED's LeanNET software to streamline the entire manufacturing process.

The PC4000 features two programmable cleaning stations--one fixed and one adjustable for simultaneous cleaning and fabricating of window frames. Enclosed ball screws for positioning of the cutter discs and scarfing knives ensure the system remains accurate and dependable during long-term, continual use. Custom-engineered routers with a variable speed bi-directional motor provide better cleaning and true 90-degree corners.

Several features make GED's PC4000 operator-friendly, according to information from the company. A profile teaching mode allows the user to add new profiles to the line without reprogramming the cleaner. The system's self-locating sizing design ensures a high-quality clean even with imperfect welds. Also, an available auto recognition feature helps to virtually eliminate scrap and waste by automatically recognizing and adjusting to stored profiles, according to the company.

As a part of GED's complete line of glass and window fabrication equipment, the PC4000 is backed by the company's training and support services.
