An operator manually loads truss members in sequenced order on the manual infeed station. The members are either spliced (if a top or bottom chord) or go directly to the preplate station (if it is a web)
Automated splicer will splice top or bottom chords as required by the truss design. Connector plate magazines are configurable by the client.
FLOOR TRUSS PREPLATE
Connector plates are robotically picked and delivered to the press. Once a plate is positioned in the press, the member is indexed to the correct location. The press embeds the connector plate.
TRUSS ASSEMBLY STATION
Assembly station robot layout spliced top and bottom chords. The robots then pick and place preplated webs along the length of the truss. No industry standard flipping required.
ROBOTS BUILDING TRUSSES
Robotic solutions that increase component manufacturers’ production output and capacity while helping reduce the challenges of labor shortages.
