According to the company, its new chain feeder continuously feeds workpieces into the moulder, increasing output and a positive feed. Boards are automatically transported on flat-top metal chains to the fence line where the accelerator rollers ensure continuous feeding. The feeder allows the operator more time for checking and turning rough material for best orientation so that maximum finished quality can be achieved. The feeder has feed rates of up to 400 fpm, accommodating a complete range of material capacities with lengths up to 20 ft, widths up to 12 in. and thicknesses up to 6-1/4 in.
