GLOBUS KNIFE RING FLAKER AT D&R HENDERSON AUSTRALIA
D&R Henderson has purchased the first Globus SRC 690 EVO 4° knife ring flaker equipped with the famous “wobble” disk, for their Benalla production facility. This flaker, which will replace an existing competitor flaker, is equipped with a series of technical innovations to enable the continual monitoring of the unit’s operating parameters.
After seeing the equipment in operation in fact, and being able to verify the exceptional performance in terms of productivity and power savings, David W. Henderson placed the order for the new mill which is due for installation in the first quarter of 2015. This order takes the number of flakers sold over the last two years to some of the world’s major particleboard manufacturers to 31 units. Remaining loyal to the Imal-Pal group’s motto: “Innovation is constantly on our mind”, Globus has recently designed a completely revolutionary concept for sharpening knife ring flaker knives: “The sharpening room”. The innovative Globus solution utilizes a robot to handle the knives throughout all the sharpening stages, and which is capable of performing distinct processing cycles. Great innovations arise from the ability to observe the world around us with different and attentive eyes and to maintain a passionate curiosity throughout life, as the great Leonardo Da Vinci would say!
