Faster rip sawing with SensoPart laser sensors
Written By klscontrols

Automatic measurement of wood planks by laser distance sensors increases the capacity of a rip saw with moveable blades.

Cutting wood planks to width is of key importance in solid wood working. So-called rip saws with moveable blades are frequently used for this purpose in saw mills and joineries, right through to the furniture industry. Their saw blades can be automatically positioned on an axis crosswise to the cutting direction. This enables several laths to be produced in the required width(s) from one raw wood plank in one rip sawing process. As manual feeding and alignment of the wood are still standard practise, the capacity of a rip saw with moveable blades remains limited, even though the operator is generally assisted by laser markings when measuring the plank.

10 Reasons To Provide Outstanding Customer Service
Written By klscontrols

Reprinted with permission from Shep Hyken, a person who has inspired me and the way I do business.

1. Amazing customer service builds credibility, trust and confidence, which can lead to customer loyalty.

2. It can help the marketing and sales budget.  It costs less to keep existing customers than it does to create new ones.

3. Delivering amazing service creates a buzz, word-of-mouth marketing and referrals, again helping the marketing budget.

4. Delivering amazing customer service can lead to existing customers buying more.

5. Customer service saves money.  When you do it right the first time, you don’t have to fix it the next time.

6. Customer service can give your company an advantage over competitors.

7. Amazing customer service can make price less relevant.

8. Customer service focused companies are usually employee focused companies, thereby creating a better place to work.

That means lower turnover, which could mean savings in hiring, training and more.

9. Customer service superstar companies are usually more profitable than the ones that aren’t.

10. Customer service helps get and keep customers.

Because without customers, you don’t have a business.
