Benchmark Drivers for Shop Automation:

A natural progression for the most automated Panel software is harnessing it's power to run automated and semi-automated shop equipment.  Because Benchmark does not Manufacture or Retail the various types of equipment we are not tied to a specific technology or manufacturer like the "Big Box" companies are.  This leaves the entire array of automated equipment open for my customers to pick and choose from.  We have worked very closely with several manufacturers to bring the best possible compatibility of the Intelliframer software to the shop floor for amazing productivity gains.  Here are some of the drivers currently available exclusively from Benchmark CAD:

 

Mango Tech Semi-Automatic cutting and plate marking system.  Talk about bang for the buck, this company from Down Under has put together a very nice system to display, measure and cut any of your panel pieces.  The Intelliframer panel is show on the Mango display with all the pieces and lengths ready to automate.  The user can make a quick choice which makes auto-stop move into place and then delivers the lumber to the saw for cutting.  The stop can push the plates through table pausing at stud and component locations for quick layout marking.  Call Benchmark for driver availability.

Virtek LaserMC automatic cutting / marking system.  This highly rated system is feed by Intelliframer to quickly automate the length and species of lumber to be cut and/or marked.  A single button push sends the stock lumber off to the saw and them the laser head for detailed laser inscribing of all stud and component locations.    The high speed and dependable Laser technology makes this a popular automated solution.   Call me for exact model driver compatibility and driver pricing.

Virtek Laser Projector.  This innovative approach to wall construction takes its' queue for the truss manufacture community.  We have programmed a unique  interface to the Virtek Laser that projects the actual wall boards onto a framing table in stages for easy, paperless layout and assembly of your panels.  Benchmark has gone a step further by interfacing our floor cassette module with the laser as well so the productivity gains in walls can be realized in floors as well.  Give me a call for details on this unique technology today.

Koskovitch Miser Saw and Ink Jet marking system.  Get ready for some serious productivity with the Miser.  This highly automated system often runs double duty providing customers both Truss and Panel automation.  Benchmark has taken a unique approach with the Miser by interfacing directly with their own "board stretcher" software  for maximum material optimization.  A sophisticated user defined matrix in the Benchmark Driver allows each unique user to tailor the pieces and species of lumber they wan to feed the Miser.  Reports of an entire house being automatically cut and marked in around 30 minutes have been realized here.  Serious automation for serious workloads.  Call me for model and series compatibility as well as driver pricing.

Benchmark CAD and Intelliframer have been chosen to drive the new automated Plate Cutting and Marking System that made it's official debut at the Triad Factory Show this April at their factory showcase.  Now BuildersCAD can export directly into Triad's Saw Talk software for easy lumber setup to run the saw and marking system.  Add the Intelliframer batch export filter for even greater control and time saving optimization.  For more information on  Triad automation, Click Here.

 

                 

                              

Perhaps you have a repetitive task that you would like to automate or a specific piece of shop equipment that you would like to run directly from your BuildersCAD output.  Give Benchmark a call to see what it will take to turn your special request into a fully integrated program.

If you would like to know more about the above custom programs and their availability please drop me a line.  These programs can also be tailored to meet your specific needs.  Benchmark CAD 585-374-6770.
