World-class service and great product makes AuCom the right choice for your soft start needs - something sawmill equipment manufacturer Cleereman Industries has experienced first hand.
Leading manufacturers of cutting edge sawmill equipment in Wisconsin, Cleereman Industries installed four AuCom EMX3 soft starters as part of a recent project for Twin Forest Products.
Supplied by AuCom distributor L&S Electric and customized for Cleereman by Mark Rinehart of QuadTech Innovations, the four starters are used to start and protect the mill's headrig, edger and chipper.
The bandmill headrig, driven by a 150HP motor with 1.25 service factor, initially proved difficult to start during commissioning. Cleereman reached out to AuCom, and with a few simple changes in the soft starter programming to account for the motor's service factor, the headrig was up and running.
