SUNSHINE COAST FRAME & TRUSS PLANT MODERNISATION
The Coolum Beach Frame and Truss plant modernisation and upgrade has been running full steam ahead in April with the arrival and installation of the third phase of the production improvements, the Flo-Max conveyer system.
Following on from Phase 1, the installation of the “Blade” linear saw capable of up to 2000 accurately cut components per shift and Phase 2, the installation of the “Auto-Set” roof truss jigging system, Flo-Max is bringing state of the art automation to the manufacturing centre.
Flo-Max, as the name suggests, is a computer conveying system that automatically delivers and sorts all the two thousand cut components from the “Blade” linear saw to the recently installed “Auto- Set jig” for on time and accurate assembly of Roof Trusses.
Other benefits of this technology are improved production capabilities and increased product accuracy while reducing the impact of lifting and handling raw material on our production staff members.
The installation and commissioning of Flo-Max will take up to two weeks.
