AMS Controls has created a retrofit package to replace these A1200 controllers with Pathfinder, a state-of-the-art folding machine control system that will improve your machine’s accuracy, increase its capabilities and make it much easier to use. Pathfinder includes SmartPath auto-sequencing to automatically calculate the best sequence of bends to make each part, no matter how complicated. SmartPath creates a level playing field where every operator, regardless of experience, can operate the machine at the same advanced level. Just a couple of hours of training can give a new operator the ability to create parts as quickly as an operator with decades of experience.
What are the benefits of replacing the Roper Whitney controls with Pathfinder? The chart below summarizes the features offered by Pathfinder when compared with the old control systems. The benefits speak for themselves.
Integrate with your Office
When you add our Order Desk office automation system, you can even share your part library with any other folding machine, regardless of manufacturer. With Order Desk and Pathfinder, you can program your parts from any networked computer and the profiles will appear at your machine without a chance of operator error. Order Desk allows you to easily print or email customer sign-off drawings, too.

In addition to Roper Whitney, AMS can also retrofit machines from ASC, Biegemaster, Bradbury, Cidan, Jorns, Lobema, RAS, Schechtl, Tensol and Thalmann.
