Description

System is designed to automatically process stacked lumber layer-by-layer into Microwave dryer (See listing BD-010139). The lumber is subsequently recieved and re-stacked. System is PLC controlled and works "on demand" to keep material flowing in an optimal pattern for maximum production. The system is designed to handle lumber 8-20' long; 3/4" to 6" thick; 3-1/2 to 12"wide at speeds up to 30 feet/min. System is designed to operate on a 24 hr basis.

-- System operation:

--Position 1: Holds two units of material until Pos. 2 provides an empty position at which time a unit is automatically transferred.

-- Position 2: Moves a unit into position for the de-stacking process and properly alighns it to the de-stacker. Once the unit has started the de-stacking process, a unit from Pos. 1 is advanced into the "ready" position on Pos. 2.

-- Position 3: Automatically indexes layers laterally and vertically for proper referencing to the microwave then feeds material on demand based upon the flow of the system. The unit automatically detects the length of the material it is feeding to optimize the feeding cycle. Automatically reloads and commences the feeding process when each unit is finished. Auto-adjusting scissor lifts provide for proper handling and support of any length material.

-- Position 4: Rakes stickers from top of layer and deposits them in a hopper for pick up.

-- Position 5: Even ends and separates boards to provide air space between them. The layer is then accelerated through an air knife curtain and into the microwave chamber.

-- Microwave Outfeed

--Position 6: Accelerates and even-ends the layer prior to transferring it laterally to Pos. 7.

-- Position 7: Removes the spacing between the boards and holds the layer in buffer for the stacking process. The buffer deck holds two layers in sequence.

-- Position 8: Stacks units to directed height and transfers it to position 9.

--Position 9: (Banding unit originally with the system has been SOLD seperately. NO longer available!

--Position 11: Receives banded units and advances them on demand to Pos. 12.

--Position 12: Positions aqnd holds the unit for pick-up by the fork lift operator.

-- Professional rigging is available.
