EXEL North America, Inc. - Kremlin Rexson -
EXEL North America is currently testing the new Self-Learning
Technology with the Fanuc P-350iA robot at our General Industrial
lab located in Plymouth, Michigan. Manufacturers are having difficulty hiring and retaining spray painters. This problem is making manufacturers explore new options to paint their products. Some manufacturers have too many substrates to write a unique robot path for each part. Not all companies hang parts identically, as a result, this makes it impossible for the robot to produce good parts with a pre-written robot path. It is unnecessary to create a unique robot path for each substrate. Each substrate can be different. Parameters can be changed to optimize the robot path and coating consumption.
The parameters are: Gun triggering (lead and lag); Applicator tip speed; Spray pattern overlap; Leading and trailing distance for changing direction of applicator and the ability to smooth out the surface contours of the substrate.
Fastenlink™ is a hidden connector system that joins materials in a fast, economical and innovative way. Using standard woodworking equipment, Fastenlink™ simplifies your manufacturing, reduces a large percentage of assembly labor and delivers a finished product free of exposed fasteners.

FISCH - Booth 4360
BLACK SHARK Forstner Bit
Faster Drilling – Effort-Saving – Longest Service Life The brand-new BLACK SHARK Forstner bit by FISCH stands for fast and precise drilling with less effort. Thanks to the optimized cutting edge geometry the drill performance has been improved significantly. The result is a sharp but effort-saving cutting performance. Due to reduced dynamic friction combined with a 25% increase in speed the runtime of the rechargeable battery of the cordless drill is double the amount. The shank with three flats avoids the slipping of the bit in the chuck and guarantees the longest possible service life. The Black Shark Forstner bit line is available in all common imperial and metric measurements.
V-SPEED GUN DRILL BITThe “V-Speed Gun Drill Bit” is the right choice for deep drill holes in softwood and hardwood. While with conventional wood drills, deep holes can only be drilled laboriously with repeated chip removal, the new “V-Speed Gun Dill Bit” with a specially developed single-spiral V-groove shape enables drilling in one working stroke. Thanks to the polished chip space, chip evacuation and performance are significantly improved. Despite the single-spiral design of the V-shape, the drill bit has a high basic rigidity and therefore does not tend to deviate in the wood; thus exactly straight and deep drill holes are possible.
The drill bit is manufactured from high-strength and hardened HSS steel, and thus has an extremely long lifetime compared to standard wood drills.
Available in the following dimensions: Total length 150 mm (6”): Ø3 mm (1/8”) to Ø10 mm (3/8”) Total length 250 mm (10”): Ø3 mm (1/8”) to Ø16 mm (5/8”) Total length 315 mm (12”): Ø4 mm (5/32”) to Ø16 mm (5/8”) Total length 460 mm (16”): Ø5 mm (13/64”) to Ø16 mm (5/8”)

MATCHFIT Dovetail Clamps
The innovative MATCHFIT Dovetail clamps will be a perfect addition
to your arsenal because they simplify so many tricky & troublesome
MATCHFIT clamps are economical because there’s no investment in aluminum T-track. Just rout a dovetail groove directly into your jigs & fixtures with a common 1/2” – 14° dovetail bit and slide the clamps into position anywhere along the groove. The grooves are 3/8” deep, so you can use the clamps with material 1/2” or thicker.
The problem with conventional clamps is that they place jaws on both sides of your work, usually leaving their fixed jaw right in your way, like when you’re clamping an auxiliary fence to your table saw’s rip fence. By comparison, the MATCHFIT Dovetail Clamp is embedded in only the back face of the component you’re clamping, leaving the opposite side completely clear of obstructions.
Because the MATCHFIT engages only one face of a board, you’re also not limited by the jaw depth of conventional clamps – their jaw depth is 2-3/8”, but MatchFit clamps can be placed any distance from the edge of a board. You could even put a clamp in the center of a 4’x8’ sheet of plywood…you probably won’t need to, but you could.
MatchFit clamps can neatly attach fixtures and auxiliary surfaces to almost anything in your shop: Table extensions, sub fences, customizable clamping tables, stop blocks, hold downs, and more.

TigerStop LLC - Booth 6769
TigerSaw 1000 is designed to greatly increase the yield, speed, and accuracy at which manufacturers can process raw material into finished parts. Currently, most component cutting is done manually with a tape measure and use of manual stops. This can be slow, inaccurate, and costly. TigerSaw 1000 will greatly increase throughput, setup time, and productivity, while reducing scrap waste.
The TigerSaw 1000 Crayon Defect Marking system allows operators to quickly remove defects by placing a crayon mark around knots, wane, splits, coloration, etc. Crayon Defecting combined with Dynamic Optimization™, gives operators the ability to achieve the maximum yield, and in most cases, shops using FAS or Select are able to downgrade to #1 Common. This is typically a 30% to 40% savings in cost of material. TigerSaw 1000 allows the operator to cut exactly what he wants, when he wants it- perfect for custom, just-in-time manufacturing.
TigerStop LLC - Booth 6769
TigerStop has introduced TigerSPC, a caliper set designed to easily make quality control measurements for parts as long as 16 feet.
Measuring and documenting your machining processes, in addition to selecting, verifying, and maintaining metrology equipment for those processes, can be complicated. Asking operators to measure from hole-to-hole on one piece, and then from hole-to-end on another piece can be challenging and time consuming.
TigerSPC calipers are affordable and designed to help eliminate these problems. With its easy to use snap in jaws, you can change from holes to miters to overall measurements in seconds without losing calibration. Available with optional TigerStop tables, the calipers can measure material up to 16 feet with +/- 006 in (.15mm) accuracy. Optional TigerSPC software logs measurement data from TigerSPC and allows you to export as a .csv file so you can import data to your other Statistical Process Control Programs.
TigerSPC makes it simple for your operator, ensuring accurate measurements every time.
