Truss Stacking & Conveyor Systems
Our Truss Stacking & Conveyor systems can help decrease your through-put time,
increase your productivity, and provide a safer working environment. They can
be installed as part of a complete production line, or stand-alone.
CII builds both vertical (peak up) and horizontal (flat) stacking systems.
These systems can be furnished as an integral part of a complete truss
production line, purchased as a stand alone system or engineered to interface
with your existing production equipment.
Our horizontal Model HS universal stacker can be adapted to most production
lines. Model HS highlights include
Handles irregular bottom chord trusses
Stacks on both sides of conveyor (two, three, or four stacking zones)
Efficient design minimizes working and wearing components, especially
when compared to those inherent in a scissor-lift style design
All-electric drive which operates on demand versus hydraulic systems
which run continuously (save on that electric bill!)
Stacks up to 30 trusses tall
Cycle time of approximately 40 seconds
Standard “off the shelf” components
Sealed roller bearing cam followers
Versatile, programmable, stack selection
Maximum truss length is unlimited
Stacks both “peak-in” and “peak-out”
Stack height can be set for specific applications
Interfaces with the conveyor system to sense trusses and activate the stacking
Electronic panel display indicates condition of stack and diagnostics
Chain driven, PLC controlled, vertical and horizontal motion
Dual, manual and automated, electrical controls
Hand-held remote control available
Multi-Head Vertical Stacker
The Multi-Head Stacker is a vertical style stacker originally designed to work
with our Multi-Head Truss Machine for cell
manufacturing. This stacker is the key in handling the output of a
fast-producing system. Used in conjunction with a special short-run conveyor
from the work cell, trusses are delivered to this continuously operating
stacker which places them in stacks of a preset quantity. Once
this quantity is reached, the completed stack indexes back, and with no
interruption another is started. Completed stacks are banded and removed as
production and stacking continues.
Systems are available for both trusses and mini-barn frames
Our standard conveyor is a low maintenance walk-thru design; it’s free of belts
and chains to hassle with or worry about. Typically, 4-1/2” rollers are spaced
at 5 foot centers, with every other roller being powered.
We also offer powered group sections as a lower cost alternative to the
walk-thru design; please inquire.
