The QUICK Automatic Clamp Carrier is the ideal labor-saving device for the high-production furniture or cabinet manufacturer. The Automatic Clamp Carrier cuts labor costs in half by allowing the Clamp Carrier operator to perform other tasks (such as applying glue to stock, etc.) while the machine automatically flattens panels, tightens clamps, rotates, and loosens clamps.
After loading wood into a section of clamps, the operator presses the “Auto Tighten” button. The hydraulic Automatic Carriage then traverses from right to left, flattening panels and tightening clamps that it finds along the way. When the Carriage reaches the right end of its traverse, it stops, awaiting input from the operator. A second press of the "Auto Tighten" button performs an automatic rotation cycle, which brings the next section of clamps down to the operator’s position. A third press of the "Auto Tighten" button causes the Carriage to traverse from left to right, loosening clamps that it finds along the way. (Note: The machine can be programmed to perform all three portions of the automatic cycle with a single press of the "Auto Tighten" button, if desired.)
The Fully Automatic Clamp Carrier can also be used in semi-automatic mode, by pressing buttons on either of the two Control Panels.
