Tim Brown Assumes Project Manager Role
(Minneapolis, MN) - After 38 years with Mereen-Johnson, long time Product Manager Dave Joslyn has decided to retire.
Joslyn has seen a lot of changes over the years. "Technology has changed a lot," said Joslyn. "At first computers were not used at all, and then quickly we went from relay logic to PLCs which have developed into fully automated systems. Fortunately, Mereen-Johnson has been at the head of the pack."
The expansion of our Webster, South Dakota manufacturing facility is well underway. This will result in a 20% increase in our assembly space. Coupled with a general plant modernization effort, we will increase our capabilities and reduce lead times.
Mereen-Johnson's Model 524-DC/SR2+4 rip saw is the ultimate in production flexibility featuring a first arbor equipped with two shifting hogging blades to virtually eliminate edge strips and a second arbor with up to four shifting blades or 24" capacity fixed gang. Check it out in action!
The LIGNA show in Hanover, Germany is the biggest woodworking show in the world, running from May 22nd-26th. Mereen-Johnson will be displaying working machines there for the first time in over 15 years. "Our strong presence at LIGNA is another indication of the growth in demand for our machines," said Paul Wilmes, Mereen-Johnson's CEO.

From simple single function to multi-station applications designed and built for the severe-duty requirements of multiple shift production, providing greater accuracy, repeatability, lower maintenance, and allowing for superior joint and finish quality, even at higher feed speeds.
There are three primary means to improve efficiencies on your gang rip saw; keep the saw(s) running at peak performance, reduce down time associated with set-up/changeovers, and getting the highest yield from your raw materials.
Keeping Your Saw Running At Peak Performance
Daily maintenance should be performed to keep your equipment running at its best and avoid down time. This task can be given to non-production staff during non-production hours. Just the simple task of daily cleaning can reduce defects and down time.
