Floor Cassette Station
The Panels Plus Floor Cassette Framing Station is designed to hold joists in a square position for fastening sheathing. This model is ideal for companies that manufacture floor cassettes, such as off-site building manufacturers, manufactured home builders, and modular builders.
The Panels Plus floor cassette system is developed at a lower working height, so fall protection is not required when fastening decking.
How it Works
The Floor Cassette Station consists of a clamping table with various features including a squaring edge, joist locators, pop-up rollers, footswitch, push-button controls, stationary side, and a motorized telescoping side.
The telescoping side is guided by tracks on the floor to set the panel length. The joists are then manually loaded onto the clamping table using the joist locators. The locators can be spaced based on the customers’ needs and are color-coded for easy joist placement. The locators individually flip down if a joist comes out on top of them.
The floor cassette is clamped against the squaring edge by stepping on the footswitch on the load end of the table. This ensures the floor cassette is square before fastening. After clamping, operators apply the decking and then the decking is fastened by hand.
When the floor cassette is completed and unclamped, the floor cassette can be raised up on pop-up conveyors and either manually rolled out or picked up by an overhead crane.
