Characteristics

OPERATION: On the feed table, boards are automatically placed along the feed line by perpendicular strands of chains.  A pneumatic system lowers chain carriage between each feed cycle, thus preventing unnecessary friction between the piece being fed and the reserve material.  Boards are automatically driven in sequence by a combination of two powered wheels located under the material and two top pressurized wheels
