Squaring and Routing Station

With the Panels Plus Squaring and Routing Station, you are one step closer to more automation. The Squaring and Routing Station incorporates the Panels Plus Squaring Station with a manual X-Y router bridge. It is designed to hold wall panels square while sheathing is tacked in place and rough openings are cut out. The manual X-Y router bridge is available in 120v or 230v 3ph. This station is ideal for companies that manufacture wood wall panels, such as off-site building manufacturers, manufactured home builders, and modular builders.

The Panels Plus wall panel systems are more ergonomic than traditional construction methods and are developed at an ergonomic working height. This eliminates the need to continually kneel or hunch over to build wall panels – improving employee health and safety.

How It Works

After a wall panel has been framed, it is rolled into the Squaring and Routing Station. This squaring station model consists of a manual X-Y router bridge and a squaring table with various features including squaring stops, horizontal rollers, footswitch, push-button controls, stationary side, and a motorized telescoping side.

When loading the panel into the squaring station, the squaring stops tip down to allow the panel to roll into the squaring table. Once the panel passes the squaring stops, the stops tip up to create a 90-degree stop. The panel is then pulled back against the stop and clamped to ensure squareness without having to manually measure for squareness.

The telescoping side is guided by tracks on the floor to set the panel height. The wall panel is clamped against the squaring edge using the footswitch on the load end of the squaring table.

Once the wall panel is square, sheathing is tacked in place by hand. When not using pre-cut sheathing, the manual X-Y router bridge is used to cut any rough openings. Power conveyors are an optional upgrade to move wall panels hands-free between workstations.

Manual X-Y Router Bridge

The router bridge turns a 2-person job into a 1-person operation. The manual X-Y router bridge features two hand cranks to move the router in the X and Y directions. The bridge is equipped with a pendant to drive the bridge into position and has an auto-return feature to return the bridge to its home position with the push of a button.

Along with an ergonomic working height, the router bridge is built with safety in mind and includes an emergency shutoff button on both sides of the bridge, a well as trip cables that deactivate the system if activated.
