Mechanical Handling

Stirling Machinery offers a range of equipment to improve the performance of timber manufacturing processes. Pairing our machines with the appropriate automation and mechanical handling systems is the best way to increase efficiency, boost productivity and reduce the labour invested into each component. Working with sawmills, pallet makers and factories producing moulded and engineered timber products, Stirling Machinery can specify mechanical handling solutions to suit most applications.

Our mechanical handling equipment includes state-of-the-art vacuum loaders, compartment feeders, stackers, robotics and cross chain feed solutions. These robust automation systems deliver the highest degree of handling efficiency to keep production moving in environments that require consistent, high-volume output. Mechanical handling, robotics and automation systems are ideal for repetitive tasks such as loading, stacking and assembling, freeing up factory staff to perform detailed tasks. This increases the efficiency of production and improves the consistency of manufactured components.

Complete Mechanical Handling Solutions

Introducing automation and mechanical handling into timber manufacturing dramatically improves production capacities and the efficiency of commercial timber processing. Unlocking the potential of their machines allows our clients to deliver higher quality, more consistent products while reducing labour expenses. Whether you need mechanical handling to support one machine, or a system to power every tool in your factory, Stirling Machinery designs complete automation, robotics and handling solutions to match.

The Stirling Machinery team can specify mechanical handling solutions for all timber production processes, including:

  • Finger jointing lines
  • Multirip lines
  • Defecting lines
  • Crosscut and sizing lines
  • Sanding lines
  • Moulding lines

Automation & Mechanical Handling Systems

With automated feed systems and robot handling becoming more accessible than ever, all timber factories, sawmills and manufacturers can benefit from Stirling Machinery’s mechanical handling solutions. The Stirling team takes a holistic approach to designing automation and mechanical handling systems. This allows us to integrate technologies that deliver the optimisations your factory requires, improving your processes, reducing expenses and delivering greater productivity. Working closely with each of our clients, we specify mechanical handling solutions to match your equipment and productivity requirements, allowing your business to grow and evolve.

Hear from our customers

C Series Finger Jointer & E Series Moulder

“Every step of the way, Stirling showed that they could partner with us in a meaningful way. We weren’t looking for a quick set-and-forget arrangement. We wanted a genuine collaboration that would see us through from consultancy and installation to operation and beyond.”

Chris Skeels-Piggins


Planer Sander

“Stirling Machinery’s Planer Sander replaced the two existing sanders we had onsite. Finishing tabletops, a process that originally took two to three hours across two machines, has now been reduced to a matter of minutes in a one-pass finish. The team took the time to understand my operation, how it is run,and what we were looking for in terms of increased capacity and timber finish, and came back with a tailored solution that ticked all of the boxes.As a furniture maker of 35 years, I have been very impressed by the level of service,support and results Stirling has provided. From adding one machine, we have gained time, quality, space, output and efficiency and I couldn’t be happier.”

Geoff Laffan

Director of Winna Furniture

A Series Moulder & Vertical Resaw

“What Craig and the rest of the team at Stirling care about is that the timber industry in Australia goes to a higher quality level. They want to see our customers getting the best product, they don’t just want to sell something. Craig is always asking the questions to make sure that whatever he sells me is going to make my product higher quality and the customer happier.”
