Mechanical Handling – Moulders
Stirling Machinery designs complete Moulder Handling Systems that deliver greater optimisation to your timber manufacturing processes. Driven by advanced PLC technology, our moulder handling systems can precisely synchronise automation equipment to your moulder speed, providing seamless integration for continuous, high-demand timber production.
Working with state-of-the-art automation equipment, including infeed, outfeed, stackers and vacuum loading machines, the Stirling Machinery team can design the ideal moulder handling solution for your application. Our systems eliminate the need for operators to individually adjust the parameters of the mechanisation, minimising downtime for improved production efficiency.
Timber Moulder Cross Chain Infeeds
To minimise labour and provide continuous feed rates, Stirling Machinery specifies cross chain infeed systems to accompany your moulder system. Driven by simple and reliable servos, cross chain infeeds can be automatically synchronised to moulder speeds, allowing for a seamless production cycle. This reduces the need for operator input and means that your mechanisation continues moving without the need for manual adjustments.
Readily compatible with our other automation technologies, including vacuum loaders and paternoster stackers, our cross chain infeed solutions ensure your timber moulder receives a steady input at all times. For joiners, sawmills, pallet makers and factories producing moulded timber components, Stirling Machinery can design robust cross chain infeeds to suit your manufacturing requirements.
Automated Moulder Cross Chain Outfeeds
For optimal moulder performance, our moulder handling systems combine automated cross chain in and outfeed systems. Operating in sequence with the infeed system, Stirling Machinery’s cross chain outfeeds handle all processed components, reducing the need for operator intervention. To ensure our moulder outfeed systems meet the needs of your factory, we also pair cross chain outfeeds with a range of stacker and vacuum loading technologies.
Using servo drives to manage operations, the moulder handling systems designed by Stirling Machinery are automatically synchronised to the speed of your moulder, allowing for consistent production and minimal equipment downtime.
Vacuum Loading & Unloading for Timber Moulders
For factories with demanding and continuous production requirements, vacuum loaders are indispensable for managing finished components and raw materials. Stirling Machinery specifies complete vacuum loading and unloading solutions. Paired with the automation of cross chain in and outfeeds, our vacuum loaders maximise the uptime of your timber moulder, ensuring stock material is always ready for processing. We specify layer loaders for maximum efficiency when loading, unloading and recovering strips, so your production cycle is always on the move.
Paternoster Stacker Integration
To maximise storage and handling of raw materials and finished components, our moulder handling systems can utilise flexible paternoster automated shelving systems. By integrating paternoster stackers into your moulder processes, Stirling Machinery can utilise factory space to the fullest, minimise your investment of labour and ensure automation systems have efficient termination points.
Driven by simple, low-maintenance technology, paternoster rack systems are highly efficient and economical. Whatever your moulder system requires, Stirling Machinery can specify paternoster stackers to perform a range of merging and storage operations. Developed specifically for your application, the paternoster stackers we specify are a cost-effective solution that can be synchronised with your complete moulder handling system.
Safety Systems for Moulder Handling
The safety of your staff and moulder operators is paramount. Minimising the risk to employees ensures a safe working environment and maximises equipment uptime. Delivering moulder handling systems to Australia’s stringent safety standards, Stirling Machinery works with equipment that features a wide range of safety features.
The timber moulder handling systems designed by Stirling Machinery include several key safety features:
