automated chord preplate
ROBOTS BUILDING TRUSSES
Robotic solutions that increase component manufacturers’ production output and capacity while helping reduce the challenges of labor shortages.
The Automated Chord Preplate System is actually two systems in one: an automated splicer that splices multiple members into a single chord, and a preplate systems that presses nail plates into the correct locations on the chord. In its combined mode, both the splicer and the preplate system work together to produce a completed spliced and preplated chord. The infeed is manually loaded in a sequential order of members that need to be spliced\preplated. The outfeed has chords that are spliced\preplated together and they are manually unloaded.
