Now that they have switched to the 3100 they’ve had complete access control, as each employee has a code.

“It’s also great that it has a lever, so it doesn’t take two hands to open the door. And, there’s a push pad for when you’re exiting,” Lyles said.

Lyles added that with the system they can also block all entry codes during off hours.

machinery and equipment
Users Can Count on New P-137 Glass Counter
Losing count of your lites? To counteract such problems, Record Products of America of Hamden, Conn., has introduced the new model P-137 glass counter, which, according to the company, scans a vertical or horizontal stack of lites and displays the total count and glass thickness on a large, illuminated LCD display. The machine sums and displays the total lites for thousands of crates or L-bucks. In addition, with an optional handle, the P-137 can count crated lites regardless of the lite thickness. 

According to the company, operation is simple—the operator presses the measurement button and then rolls the machine across the stack, and the count is immediately displayed.

Lightweight and cord-free, the P-137 operates for up to three weeks on a single battery charge, making the machine portable and versatile. Designed for 24-hour operation on the factory floor, the manufacturer points at the machine’s accuracy and repeatability as key features. However, Record Products of America says that perhaps the most impressive feature of its machine is that an algorithm actually learns what types of lites are being counted and alerts the operator to possible problems or discrepancies.

Brush and conveyor bearings have lubrication fittings and the company says the efficient rinse systems reduce water consumption by 66 percent.

A large, operator-control station is positioned on the loading conveyor, and the company’s “one-second” rapid height adjustment system, which can adjust for different glass thicknesses in one second, is also an option.

The machine can process glass from 0.050 to ½-inch thick at speeds of up to 35 feet per minute.

Nilsson says that by using one set screw technicians only have to loosen the screw to replace the cutting blade. The design also allows the technician to adjust the height of the handle to work around elevation changes.

The knife comes with a heavy-duty pull cable 3003-RK and also includes thin foam covers for the handle and cable.
