As with all Taylor Clamp Carriers, smaller machines can be expanded as production requirements grow. Many customers will start with a (20) Section machine, and then expand that machine into a (40) Section or (60) section in the future, reusing approximately 90% or more of the existing components. Taylor’s goal is to grow with you through the years!!

Production is based on cycle time and panel size. Assuming that each section is curing 3 panels whose dimensions are 24″ x 24″ (60cm x 60cm) and assuming a cycle time of 90 seconds, production per shift equals:

One Panel:
=4 ft2 (.36M2)

One Section:
=12 ft2 (1.1M2)

One Cycle:
=90 seconds
=40 cycles/hour
=320 cycles/shift

Production output:
=12 ft2 x 320 cycles or 3840 ft2/shift
=1.1 M2 x 320 cycles or 352 M2/shift
