VECTOR SYSTEMS_NEW ZEALAND: AUTOMATED MACHINES MULTI PROCESSES
For many years, automated machines have been available for cutting, drilling and edging rectangular panels. Beamsaws, CNC machining center, multi-borers and straight-line edge-banders have been developed to a high level.
However, when it comes to producing shaped panels with non linear edges and rounded corners, the options have been limited. Between the entry level manually operated machines and the high-end CNC solutions, has been an enormous gap in the market. Vector Systems Ltd was born of an idea that fits neatly into the market position with a unique solution. The VECTOR Revolution 180 uses a simple but sophisticated means of sensing the shape of a panel and effectively writes it’s own program as it progresses. This is the Revolution principle. Vector System Ltd is based in New Zealand and is able to draw on the considerable design and manufacturing expertise for which the country is renowned. One need only look at the performance of the America’s cup yachting industry to see that New Zealand has a reputation for producing fine quality, world beating products with special innovation and design flair. About Machine Until the arrival of the VECTOR Revolution 180, the only options available to manufacturers needing to apply edging onto curved shapes has been highly labor-intensive manual and semi-automatic machines (with variable quality of output), or expensive CNC hybrid solutions. The VECTOR Revolution 180 is a new concept in both its manner of operation (patented Vector principle) and the fact that it is only responsible for edging the panel – not for cutting out the shape – which has a number of advantages. The unique combination of the patented Vector operating system, flat bed and pendulum loading capability means that short runs and changing product shapes and sizes is simple and quick.
