Reduce physical exertion and potential for injury for your valued workforce
Maximize efficiency and reduce potential losses during equipment down times
• System components may be purchased independent of the full system.
• Provides flexibility on production scheduling & optimization.
• Designed to utilize nail plates from any manufacturer.
• Configured for 65+ common sizes
The floor truss system allows an operator to manually load members in a sequenced order. The members will either get spliced (if a top or bottom chord) or go directly to the preplate station (if it is a web). Once spliced and preplated with the appropriate nail plate(s), member then travels to the table for automatic layout and assembly. The floor truss system uses two mirrored lines that feed a single assembly table; ejecting two trusses every time the gantry press is operated
• System can accept 2x4 material. Other dimensional pieces can be manually placed before the truss is pressed.
• Longest member is 20 feet long. Shortest member is 6″ to automatically assemble. However, any member can be manually placed on the table before the truss is pressed, allowing an almost a limitless size and configuration of trusses.
• Preplating system is configurable to use all common plates (currently configured with over 65 different sizes.) System allows for nail plates to be manually placed before the truss is pressed. Since the saw is decoupled, the infeed board size, quality and specifications are completely independent of the assembly systems.
• Data Collection – System collects cycle time data
• Required Personnel - 2 to 3 operators
• Rate - The truss system’s rate is dependent on how many nail plates are in the truss design. Although the floor truss system is dependent on preplated members, the board feet is directly related to the size of the truss. Therefore, its stated rate is 1,000 BfHr.
