Tilt

Product description

A tilt is used to separate the sticks from the timber in a timber packet by tilting the packet so that the timber layer can slide off onto one of the following chain conveyors at the same time as the sticks fall down between the chain guides. The packet turnover time can be minimised with the use of an assisting elevator that takes over and raises the packet on the last section as the main elevator fetches the next packet. Sticks that are frozen fast or stuck by resin can be loosened by fitting the tilt with some form of stick separator.

  • Careful handling.
  • Can be equipped with an assisting elevator
  • High capacity
  • Robust construction
  • Tried and tested technology 
  • Available in several different sizes

Function description

The packets are leant towards the tilting table which then tips over. As the packet load is raised, the timber layers slide off one by one onto the following carrier conveyor at the same time as the sticks slide down between the chain guides. To ensure the uppermost layer is flat at the point of de-layering, a run-out function option is available. The level of the uppermost layer of the packet is corrected on both sides of the packet by the outer forks under the packet which can be raised and lowered. The so-called run-out is fully automatic and with the aid of an ultrasound sensor the packet end levels are read and adjusted against the level in the middle of the packet. To minimise the packet turnover time the tilt can be equipped with an assisting elevator that takes over and completes the elevator movement, at the same time as the main elevator fetches the next packet. The next packet is then ready to be raised and de-layered as soon as the assisting elevator is ready. The assisting elevator can also be equipped with a run-out function. Sticks that do not slide off the layer can be removed with the aid of some type of stick separator. Examples of stick separators are the stick screw that mechanically moves downwards and releases the sticks, the clapper that strikes the timber layer, or stop dogs that arrest the layer during the downward-sliding movement.
