Topmaster Offers Exceptional Cost Savings For Several
It only takes one person to operate the machine. The
typical production T-molding operation will employ between
4 and 5 people. With the Topmaster, only one person
Material handling is greatly reduced. Again, most operations
will employ a specific machine to do a specific function,
thus, three stations do the three operations of shaping,
grooving and T-molding. With the topmaster, all operations
are performed at one station and materials handling
is reduced to a minimum.
Production capacity is increased. In a typical T-molding
operation, a crew of 4 will average between 15 and 20
complete panels per hour. With the Topmaster, production
rates of 30 to 60 pieces per hour with one employee
are averaged. Some owners report producing as many as
500 pieces in an eight-hour shift.
The need for quality control is greatly reduced. Because
the machine utilizes a template, the two cutting arms
don't have the opportunity to cut deeper than than they
are supposed to. Also, the T-molding is rolled in under
pressure rather than pounded in with the use of an impact
tool. This leaves the finished part with a smooth and
flat edge without waves or distortion.
