Laser Setup System

In the past, increasing your production capacity meant adding more floor space, new table systems, and increasing manpower with overtime or hiring additional builders.

AV Birch Limited Timber Engineering have teamed up with SL Laser Gmbh to provide an innovative and reliable solution to timber roof truss assembly.

Incorporating the ProDirector 6 Laser Projection System to the Birch Press Table to increase productivity and precision whilst decreasing costs and setup times by using laser light patterns as work templates.

The systems utilises truss engineering files to generate a full scale laser image of the truss profile on to the table work surface.  The image can then be positioned anywhere on the table for efficient use of space, allowing operators to accurately set jigs to the projected truss outline.

The truss projection system reduces the time of training new, seasonal, or temporary labour. An unskilled worker can be trained to place components to the laser template in a matter of minutes.

The ProDirector 6 uses green laser light, which is 4 to 5 times more visible to the human eye than red laser light. Your truss builders won’t have to work in dim light or wear special glasses to see a green laser.  The SL Laser is accurate to 0.35mm over a 4.0m height and can project up to 8.0m on a table length from a height of 5.1m.
