Flexible and modular frame fabrication solutions to suit every plant and budgetABOUT AUTONAILER
We continue to develop a range of systems to meet new industry challenges deemed too complicated for cost effective automation, whilst investing continually in research and workforce development programs.
Soon, Vekta will also release its latest innovation catering to both parallel and raking frames later this year. The new Raking Framer, is modular in design and priced to suit plants of all sizes. A rake wall, is an angled wall which is used on the inside or outside of a building. Typically framing these is a manual process which requires knowledge and experience to ensure a correct and quality finished product. It’s also problematic for most manufacturers and builders, as typically these monsters are framed in a completely manual or semi-automated process.
The Vekta Raked Wall/Framing solution is a completely automated end to end solution.
This starts with the cutting of each component which is automated and then conveyed where the table holds the nails, screws, subcomponents and studs squarely in place for fastening. By removing the manual task of placing each of the cut component to the assembly, this improves efficiency and increase the accuracy and quality process for making raked wall frames. The system is designed also to manufacture standard or common walls.
This market leading combination means you only need 1 line to produce your framing requirements
Vekta can deliver you the efficient production requirements you are looking for. Production numbers will increase without the need for extra labour – the system is designed to operate with just 1 operator/observer.
And of course, the solution is designed to integrate with Vekta’s own Packfeeder automating the delivery of timber to the machine as well as Vekta’s unique Stak Pro Truss solution, for the Transfer and Stacking of all Frame finished product ready for delivery.
