Woodworking Industry Solutions

To meet the needs of the woodworking industry, GH IA has developed a unique turnkey system for brazing carbide tips to rotary saw blades. Designed for semi-automatic or manual operation, the system includes a stepper motor package that rotates the blade to the correct position, along with a pneumatic sled which moves the induction heating coil for easy blade load and unload. A convenient touch screen is provided for machine control and process setup. With this system, carbide tips can be precisely aligned within ±0.002” on the center of the saw blade body for fast, high-quality brazing.
