The 3 Steps for a Good Installation

  1. Position of the gripper
    The number of grippers depends on the position and the length of the boards

  1. What kind of gripper to use
    Each lumber industry has his own specifications
    There are different internal and external designs to fit each need:
    External:  the bodies of the grippers are made with different materials and designed to fit with the                             working environment
                                                    ·Flush:  the most common one, available in steel or aluminum
                            ·Pan:  recommended in the sawmills or pallet industries or where extreme conditions                                                        exist, the perimeter flange provides a very strong and safe design in case of collision
        · Internal:  all are equipped with the Joulin Wave System™ for energy savings and non-sensitivity
               to  dust and moisture

  2. Lifting Capacity
    Once lumber specifications are known, the number of grippers and design will be selected
    Different foam materials, patterns and hole sizes are available

    What is the grade?
    Industrial: rough lumber or panels
    Severe: heavy dust present
    Extreme: extra heavy-duty design for oversize beams or extreme installation conditions
