Grand Rapids, MI, August 29, 2017 – Stiles Machinery Inc. is proud to support their partners at HOMAG for their award-winning intelliGuide panel saw operator assistance system, which took home the title of the “Most Important LIGNA Innovation of 2017” at this year’s LIGNA Innovations Symposium in Hannover, Germany. As the exclusive provider of HOMAG’s intelliGuide system to the North American market, Stiles is pleased to represent the latest innovation in panel sizing technology.
The intelliGuide system supports the saw operator by responding to their movements in real time and visually guiding them through the use of an LED light strip and laser technology that is projected directly onto the workpieces during operation. The unique camera system located on the top of the machine enables the intelliGuide to detect which workpiece is being inserted into the machine and how it is positioned prior to operation. If the operator makes a mistake, the intelliGuide Professional system responds by adjusting the saw’s actions or informing the operator of the appropriate steps to correct the error.
The intelliGuide makes it easier than ever for manufacturers to achieve increased efficiency and consistent productivity regardless of the operator’s skill level. By incorporating the intelliGuide system into current cutting operations, companies are saving precious time and resources by significantly reducing operator error and time spent training new employees.
Stiles is proud to represent this latest innovation in panel sizing technology from HOMAG as well as an entire range of smart solutions that are helping manufacturers worldwide achieve higher levels of quality, accuracy and flexibility.
