Side-matcher infeed systems

By: Osi Machine  09-12-2011

Your team is your most valuable asset.

Their expertise can go a long way to producing high quality products, keeping customers happy, and maintaining your competitive edge. So why dedicate them to “simply” feeding your existing side matcher? What a waste of valuable resources!

OSI Wood Machinerie’s side-matcher infeed systems have changed the rules when it comes to handling boards. They are designed to automate the process of feeding side-matchers, allowing your team to work on more worthwhile tasks (read: quality control) that positively impact your bottom line. Incomparably sturdy, these side-matcher infeed systems optimize your production line by ensuring a steady flow of wood planks, optimizing your overall production plant efficiency. No handling required!

Our side-matcher infeed systems are the ultimate end-to-end solutions. They are comprised of four components that maintain a swift production flow: the unstacker, unscramblers, sorting table, and the feeder itself. All work together to reduce blocking and material waste, therefore increasing your yield throughput. In addition, each component is designed to your specific requirements and is custom-built to adapt to your side-matcher equipment—and entire production line.

The added benefit: our side-matcher infeed systems can also be used for a variety of differing manufacturing applications, such as furniture, doors, and windows.
