of the critical speed of rotation
needed over a long axis.
Rack-and-pinion drives are
best known for being rigid and
not limited by length, which
makes them suited for the long
axis. This drive also is geared
more aggressively to better utilize
the torque of the motors, providing an appreciable difference in
speed between the two systems.
ings include higher friction and
potential backlash if the pinion is
not properly engaged.
QDo I need to learn a programming lan- guage like G Code to
operate a CNC router?

Panel saw scoop
Panel sizing and optimization is
going through a transition. For many
companies, this involves moving
from large batch processing to small
batches or batch one sizes.
Also among today’s “hot” items
is high-speed single sheet and/or
small book height processing. This
requires a dual feeder to achieve the
parts per minute increase while cross
cutting. Other capabilities include
a material handling/turning device
inside the saw for auto rotation of
head cuts, automatic parts labeling,
and automated storage and retrieval
systems for delivering material directly
to the cutting system.
