Section 179: Put a Machine on your Floor before the end of the Year!

Here’s How Section 179 works:

In years past, when your business bought qualifying equipment, it typically wrote it off a little at a time through depreciation. In other words, if your company spends $50,000 on a machine, it gets to write off (say) $10,000 a year for five years (these numbers are only meant to give you an example).

Now, while it’s true that this is better than no write-off at all, most business owners would really prefer to write off the entire equipment purchase price for the year they buy it.

And that’s exactly what Section 179 does – it allows your business to write off the entire purchase price of qualifying equipment for the current tax year.

This has made a big difference for many companies (and the economy in general.) Businesses have used Section 179 to purchase needed equipment right now, instead of waiting. For most small businesses, the entire cost of qualifying equipment can be written-off on the 2018 tax return (up to $1,000,000).

Limits of Section 179

Section 179 does come with limits – there are caps to the total amount written off ($1,000,000 for 2018), and limits to the total amount of the equipment purchased ($2,500,000 in 2018). The deduction begins to phase out on a dollar-for-dollar basis after $2,500,000 is spent by a given business (thus, the entire deduction goes away once $3,500,000 in purchases is reached), so this makes it a true small and medium-sized business deduction.

Who Qualifies for Section 179?

All businesses that purchase, finance, and/or lease new or used business equipment during tax year 2018 should qualify for the Section 179 Deduction (assuming they spend less than $3,500,000).

Most tangible goods used by American businesses, including “off-the-shelf” software and business-use vehicles (restrictions apply) qualify for the Section 179 Deduction.

For basic guidelines on what property is covered under the Section 179 tax code, please refer to this list of qualifying equipment. Also, to qualify for the Section 179 Deduction, the equipment and/or software purchased or financed must be placed into service between January 1, 2018 and December 31, 2018.

Here is a list of machines that Scarlett Inc. has in stock that can be sold and put on your floor before the end of the year to qualify for Section 179.

The Weinig EasyStop


Increase Your Efficiency & Precision with this versatile tool that can be incorporated in any shop.

The Weinig EasyStop is a linear positioning system that allows you complete flexibility while ensuring  precision, power, and quickness. The EasyStop can position even the heaviest loads with unmatched accuracy reducing your handling costs and providing a safer and more efficient work environment.

EasyStop is the new automatic length stop from Weinig. Used in combination with virtually any machine for cutting, drilling or milling of any material, the automatic length stop provides faster, more comfortable, and more precise processing.

For any process that repeatedly requires a tape measure, the EasyStop provides fast, repeatable measurement which is accurate to +/- 0.1mm. Malcolm

Cuthbertson, managing director of Weinig UK, says: “Careful measuring is necessary, but if you have an operator doing it regularly, it’s inefficient, slow and expensive in time and, when the measurements aren’t quite right, wasted material.

“EasyStop is a very simple, precise and easy-to-use solution that fits with almost any machine to process almost any material.”

The OptiCom Assist user interface could not be simpler for set up or use. Absolute position of the positioning stop is actively monitored by the software and extreme loads are compensated by the integrated intelligent drive control – the hydraulic buffer means if the stop is knocked, the measurement will still be accurate.

As the brains of the EasyStop, the OptiCom Assist user interface is intuitive and requires minimal training. Clear and easy to use, the interface guarantees efficient operation regardless of operating experience. With modes for both manual operation and list operation, the operator can set a desired length, or save 10 lists with 20 lengths each for fast processing of complete sets.

Other features include consideration of multiple lengths required, actual number of pieces, and editing of individual workpieces or workpiece packages. The

EasyStop comes with its own stand and has options for roller tables.

The EasyStop comes from the Weinig Group – the leading technology and machinery provider worldwide for the solid wood processing industry and artisan trades – and has the Weinig guarantee, support and service.

Flexible Usability

The Stop System

The Stop System operating mode replaces one-off manual stop positioning. The workflow remains the same – enter the desired position, align the workpieces against the stop and machine the workpiece. The time-consuming activity of measuring and manually setting your stop is completely eliminated with this automatic positioning system.

Active Workpiece Transport

The Active Workpiece Transport mode aligns your workpiece quickly and accurately at various lengths taken from your cutlist. After defining your cutlist the EasyStop starts at a loading position and then transfers the workpiece to each desired cut without needing dimensional input from the operator. EasyStop compensates for the machining width of the cutting tool so your cuts are precise each time.

MillVision Integration

So you would like to have a better idea of where your parts are? Has the job been completed? MillVision not only allows you to control what parts and jobs need to be cut, it allows you to manage the process. By posting a simple part list to MillVision, your operator will be able to view this list and begin the process without any paper, or manual entry that may inadvertently induce human error. Whether you have 5 EasyStops, or 1, MillVision allows shops like yours to create a complete workpiece flow across multiple machines and processes.

Doucet Challenger Award Winner 2018 for their Automated Clamp Carrier System ALYX

Doucet Challenger Award Winner 2018

Automatically load and unload glued panels with synchronized machinery

Said to improve production and reduce labor costs, Doucet Machineries’ ALYX is an automated loader system for high volume gluing application, panel preparation, and loading and unloading of the clamp carrier. The ALYX automatic loader is a 2018 IWF Challengers finalist.

The company says the ALYX’s modular design allows it to be added to an existing clamp carrier or to be integrated in Doucet’s SRX hydraulic clamp carrier. Clamp carriers usually feature a rotating frame that clamps together glued panels allowing them to dry. The ALYX is divided into several sections starting with the lateral chain feeder, which receives the slats and guides each piece through to the next section, the glue application device.

The glue applicator and measurement device is where the width of the slats are calculated ensuring that the last slat does not receive glue to create a dry joint in the panel. A dry joint is said to create air flow between panels and a building’s structural wall by allowing for expansion and contraction of the exterior panels. It also enables the inside air pressure to be matched to the pressure outside to resist wind driven rain and other factors that could drive water into the building’s walls. If rain does make it through, the dry joints allow the water to drain, evaporate, or dry.

The slats are edge glued through an extruder instead of a glue roll which the company says will save 20 to 30 percent of glue. Much like a hot glue gun, an extruder pushes the glue out from a barrel onto the wood. A UV sensor follows the extruder to detect the UV additive in the glue and will emit a warning to the operator if no glue is detected.

The panel forming zone is where all slats exiting the glue applicator are guided toward a transfer mechanism, which then side-shifts the slats against one another onto the panel accumulation conveyor until the panel reaches the desired width. This conveyor features two moving holders that move the completed panel to allow assembly of the second panel. While ensuring the panels maintain a fixed panel end, the holders move them along the accumulation conveyor toward the clamp carrier.

The arms of the two-axis automatic loader moves between the clamps of the carrier in order to load freshly glued panels into the clamps and unload dried panels onto the exit conveyor. Movement of the automatic loader is synchronized with the clamp carrier sequence so loading and unloading is done while the clamps are in a horizontal position.

The final section is the motorized exit conveyor where the dry panels are removed from the loading area.

If you have an application where this could be used, Contact Scarlett Inc. for more information.


 ALYX – Clamp Carrier Automatic Loader, We explained the regular process of edge gluing and its disadvantages. Today we reveal why you need the Automatic Loading system – ALYX.

Benefits of the ALYX Automated Loading System:

  • Rapid production: The complete cycle time for gluing and loading is 80 seconds or less with only one operator at the panel preparation position, another partial operator is managing the material input and output
  •  Less Intensive Labor: The operator tasks are much less physical than before as their new tasks is now oriented on the value-added tasks like color matching of staves, grading of incoming staves before being glued
  •  Reduced Glue Consumption: End user could expect savings on glue consumption as injection glue typically requires less glue than roller type application by 20% to 30%
  •  Reduced Panel Cleaning: Having less glue squeeze out on the dry panels results into more productive downstream operations like sanding and planning and increasing abrasive lifespan
  •  Reduced Maintenance: Systems currently in operation are showing a drastic drop in cleaning hours required on the clamp carrier. As an example, a system used continuously (24 hours) 5 days a week required clamp screw cleaning cycleonce every 3 months compare to once a week with an older system
  •  Rapid Return on Investment: End users in the cabinet door industry have estimated a return on the investment between 18-19 months
  •  Dramatic Reduction in Labor: End users in the stairs industry have reduced their operation from 3 employees on one shift to one employee and 24 hour operation, increasing the quantity of stairs produced by over 40% with same labor costs involved and 30% glue savings.
