This innovative instant data transfer technology directly supports the Industry 4.0 concept and is an industry first for band saw blade manufacturers.

By using a mobile device and scanning a QR code on the saw blade or blade box, saw operators can point the scan to the machine to transfer a complete, unique data set so the machine can begin cutting. "We were excited to have introduced our instant blade-to-machine technology at EMO this year, where it was extremely well received." said Mr. David Miles, president of Simonds Saw.

The IPC Solution from Simonds Saw uses a Band Saw Blade Simulator Program to improve sawing productivity up to 60% by significantly improving the performance, productivity and ROI of a user's sawing operation. The Simulator enables a user to model their sawing application and compare the results obtained with conventional saw technology to unique blade/ tooth configurations designed specifically by Simonds/WESPA for the user’s application.
