Why Purchase From Javelin Not Directly From An Asian Manufacturer?
The main issue purchasing an automatic machine directly from the Asian manufacturer or their agent compared to buying a machine (J2600) upgraded by Javelin. Your electrician is prevented from accessing the machine programme and operator screens by an access code installed by the manufacturer. You must have these issues dealt with directly with the manufacturer in Asia (via modem) or their agent. Communication issues mean more machine downtime! Javelin deletes factory programme and downloads new programmes developed by Javelin, which allows instant access by your local electrical contractor. This means no machine downtime – you are in control.
Operator Screen and Machine Manual
Some manufacturer’s English version manuals can be difficult to understand. There is a steep learning curve for new or casual operators. We enter machine settings into the screen for your most commonly used products to make our manuals easy to understand. Operator, maintenance and spare parts manuals can be completely rewritten and enhanced by Javelin to make them easier to understand.
Manufacturers guarding, even if fitted does not meet standards required in USA/Canada/Europe/Australia/New Zealand. Electrical schematics (wiring diagrams) can often be inaccurate and/or indecipherable. Javelin fits new mechanical guards with interlocking guard switches on all opening doors and guards. These divert all safety functions through a safety controller and around, not through the PLC. Shielded cabling prevents interference to computers. All motors, drives, lights are earthed to prevent electrocution. Javelin rewrites electrical wiring diagrams specific to your machine
Machine PLC Servo, Motors and Electrical Controllers
Asian manufacturers can fit brands not known outside Asia and/or older version of well-known brands, all of which can be extremely difficult to repair or replace. Javelin ensures machines we supply are fitted with the latest Mitsubishi PLC, servos, controllers, drives and other items such as the operator screen. Smaller components are available on the internet or from Javelin.
Inspection Prior to Delivery
Due to the volume of machines manufactured by Asian manufacturers, pre delivery testing of individual machines is limited resulting in problems for the buyer. Javelin carries out a check of all machine functions, identifies and fixes any issues prior to releasing the machine.
Contacting Asian Manufacturer in Future
Javelin retains an agent in China (former Javelin engineer who now resides in China) to discuss and negotiate any issues on customer’s behalf. This helps us to eliminate misunderstanding and delays in communication.
Here are just some critical machine elements you will not get in a cheap manual operation machine
compared to purchasing a J860 from Javelin:
Machined knife spindles, spindle face and quality bearings aligned so the knife runs true.
Machined pedestal pivot shaft and quality bearings
- Electrical wiring to International Standard with all motors drives and the machine itself safely earthed and power isolator switch fitted.
Only latest quality electrical components are used together with Allen Bradley or Omron drives, Red Lion index counter.
Mechanical and electrical guarding to OSHA, CE and AS4024 standard.
Polycarbonate safety cover protects operators against flying shrapnel from shattered steel knife or chuck pins and hand entrapment in rotating material/mandrel/chuck.
Electrical guard switch cuts off power when safety cover lifted.
