The operator selects the truss size via a recipe on the touch screen, sets the rail hopper widths, and loads the rail and block hoppers. The operator then presses the start button to initiate the automatic machine cycle.
The conveyor starts and pushes the truss rail blocks underneath the first rail hopper. The first rail is released onto the top of the truss rail blocks and is then pushed under the next rail hopper. The top rail strip is released from the hopper into position. The first stage staple guns are fired to assemble the rails onto the truss rail blocks.
The first stage truss assembly is then pushed onto a gravity conveyor and is then clamped and rotated into position. The bottom rail is released onto transfer cylinders and is then positioned onto the 1st stage rail assembly. The 2nd stage staple guns are then fired to complete the truss assembly. The completed truss is then rotated onto a transfer rail and is then accumulated at the rear side of the machine.
