Panels Plus Single Tool Wall Sheathing Machine

This machine is designed to fasten Sheathing to wall panels made from 2x4 to 2x10, dimensional and engineered lumber. The wall panel is rolled into the sheathing machine from the Framer or Squaring table and clamped to ensure the wall panel is square. The operator then uses the bridge to fasten the sheathing to the wall.

The design concepts used in the single tool bridge are based on that of the multi tool bridge which has been in production for many years. The advantages of the single tool over the multiple tool bridge are more flexibility in the fastener spacing both in the field, on seams, and while stitching the top and bottom plates, fewer tools to maintain.

Squaring Table: The squaring table is a walk through open table design consisting of a stationary and moveable section. The moveable section traverses in and out on v-tracks mounted on the floor. The table can be opened or closed to set the wall height, or clamp and unclamp the wall by simply stepping on a footswitch located on the load end of the table or pressing the open or close buttons located on the exit end of the table. The wall panel is rolled in and out of the table on roller conveyors.

Bridge: The bridge is driven up and down the wall, on v-track, mounted to the stationary side of the table and on floor tracks on the telescoping side of the table, using a joystick. To assist in positioning the bridge at each joist there is a laser pointer that projects a line on the wall where the fasteners will be inserted. The bridge is equipped with an auto-return feature that automatically returns the bridge back to the home position allowing the operator to start removing the wall section from the table. The Bridge is also equipped with a platform for the operator to stand on allowing him to move with the bridge.

Tool Carriage: The tool carriage consists of one tool that traverses the wall inserting fasteners at a preset spacing. Field and seam fastener patterns are preset in the touchscreen and can be switched on the fly via a button on the joystick. The tool can be tilted left and right for nailing along seams in the sheathing.

Plate Stitchers: During the auto-return sequence the stitchers will automatically insert a fastener through the sheathing into the top and bottom plates at your chosen spacing. The stitcher spacing can be easily changed on the touch screen.

Tool Carriages: This bridge has two tool carriages, one on each beam allowing two different tools to be mounted simultaneously. Each tool carriage consists of one tool that traverses the wall inserting fasteners at a preset spacing. Field and seam fastener patterns are preset in the touch screen and can be switched on the fly via a button on the joystick. The tool can be tilted left and right for nailing along seams in the sheathing.

This machine does not include top and bottom plate stitchers.

Panels Plus Combo Table with
Single Tool Bridge and Indexing Tool Carriages

This machine is designed to fasten Sheathing to wall panels made from 2x4 to 2x10, dimensional and engineered lumber. The wall panel components are rolled into the framing area from the component tables then studs are loaded and clamped to ensure the wall panel is square. The operator then uses the framing carriages and the bridge to frame and sheath the wall in the same station.

Framing Tool Carriages: There is a tool carriage located on the stationary and telescoping side of the table. The carriages roll on a V-rail mounted to the side of the table. To nail each stud, the operator moves the carriage into position, and presses a single fire button and the tools automatically fire to insert nails in a predetermined pattern. The hand-held tool is used for adding blocking, bracing and adding any additional nails.
