The 3 steps for a good installation


First; position of the gripper:
The number of grippers depends on position and length of the boards 

lumber configuration

Second; what kind of gripper to use:

Each lumber industry has his own specifications 

There are different internal and external designs to fit with each needs:

  • External: The bodies of the grippers are made with different materials and design to fit with the working environment
    • Flush: The most common one. Available in steel or aluminum
    • Pan: Recommanded in the sawmills or pallet industries or where extreme conditions exist. The perimeter flange provides are very strong and safe design in case of collision
  • Internal: All are equiped with the Joulin Wave System™ for energy savings and non sensitivity to dust or moisture

 

Third; lifting capacity:

Once we know the lumber specifications, we will choose the number of grippers and design 
Different foam materials patterns and holes sizes are available

 

What is the Grade?

Industrial: Rough lumber or panels
