Taylor #33N- Laser Opti-Sizer
The Taylor Laser Opti-Sizer is a computerized panel selection machine which is attached to a Taylor Conveyorized Glue Applicator system. It will Accurately size panels to within 1/8″ and automatically feed the Glue Applicator.
The Taylor Laser Opti-Sizer is a computerized panel selection machine which is used with a Conveyorized Glue Applicator system. The Opti-Sizer saves both material and labor when compared with either sizing panels by hand or at the straight line rip saw.
The Opti-Sizer automatically selects random width (3/4″ to 6″) parallel ripped boards to produce panels of a specified width, thus eliminating manual board selection. The Opti-Sizer will consistently size panels within 1/8″ at a rate of up to 7 panels per minute.
Random width stock is then placed into the infeed slots of the Opti-Sizer. Laser sensor is used to read the height of random width boards on edge in the slots on the Opti-Sizer. These values are fed into a computer. Based on the desired panel width, the computer rapidly calculates and evaluates the thousands of combinations of board selection. When the solution is found it advances those boards selected onto the Conveyorized Glue Applicator. After a batch of boards has been sent onto the Conveyorized Glue Applicator, if a usable combination of measured boards is still left in the Opti-Sizer, another panel will be sent out before scanning again.

The Taylor Opti-Sizer is another component in our systems approach to high production edge gluing. When used in conjunction with the Taylor Conveyorized Glue Applicator and Automated Clamp Carrier, as shown in the diagram above, one man is able to both size and glue panels
The Opti-Sizer saves both material and labor when compared with either sizing by hand or sizing with a straight line rip saw. Consistently sizing panels to within 1/8 ” of the desired width, the 21 slot Opti-Sizer, for example, can size over 7 panels per minute with just one operator
