New aSa Rebar Shear Console to Debut at World of Concrete 2014
Oct 22, 2013 - LAS VEGAS,NV
LAS VEGAS – Hundreds of rebar fabrication companies around the world rely on the aSa Opto-Shear Console to automate their shearlines and guide employees through cutting and bundling material. At World of Concrete 2014 in Las Vegas January 21-24, the next generation of aSa’s industry-leading console makes its debut.
The new console has a clean, modern interface that makes it easier than ever to read and interact with the touch-screen. Additionally, users can customize the color scheme based on their own personal preferences and create their own “My Task” menus based on the activities they perform most.
Like its predecessor, the new console has several built-in fabrication “modes,” ranging from fully automated to user controlled “manual cutting.” A new “Flex” mode provides countless options for organizing and cutting lists of material. In Flex, the user can select the cutting sequence or let the console optimize material on the fly.
One of the key features of the new console is its flexible architecture. For example, the console can be connected to a network for easy access to production run data, or it can run stand-alone when network connectivity isn’t required (or possible). Because the console is software-based, existing Opto-Shear cabinets can be upgraded, requiring minimal investment in new hardware.
Also featured at WOC will be aSa’s complete line of rebar products, including Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology; material and heat tracking solutions; and equipment automation.
