Time-saving process solutions
Fully automatic material flow
STACKING: Shipping packages
Stacking of timber (including in multiple lengths) can be realised with stacking tongues or vacuum lifters, with the timber being collected in layers and deposited layer by layer on the shipping package to be formed. Shipping strips can be laid between several layers to stabilise the shipping package. Strip laying is automatic. Where necessary, the shipping package is stabilised additionally through final strapping. Squared timbers can be optionally included on the package underside, and the packages can be pressed hydraulically together if desired. Customers who do not wish to have stabilising strips (e.g. because the package only needs to be transported within the company) may avail of offset stacking.
Effective air circulation, thanks to dry sticks
STACKING: Drying packages
Wooden sticks are laid between each layer when stacking timber that is still damp in drying packages. The intermediate sticks ensure adequate air circulation during drying and accelerate the drying process. The drying sticks are laid by stick magazines.
Option: Workpieces of different widths can also be stacked with spacing with the aid of a servo slide.
