Rail sections could be joined end-to-end using standard bolted dovetail clamps to form the required 9m runs on either side of the conveyor. Engineering components that are resistant to the ingress of wood dust are crucial to the reliability of a new automated production line being built by 3think This Halifax-based company has designed, manufactured and is currently installing a bespoke automated line at a large timber engineering company. This special purpose machine automatically produces frames for timber framed houses and these can be up to 6m long and 3m wide. The process requires up to eight nails per second to be fired into the frame. Sections of TMT Speedy Rail have been supplied for the bridge across the conveyor that carries the nail gun. Despite its light weight Speedy Rail is exceptionally strong and easy to install. Resistance to weld splatter has made it suitable for car manufacturers who specify Speedy Rail for lift-and-carry transfer lines for car body panel welding. The Speedy Rail beam is a heat-treated aluminium alloy profile with hollow cross-sections that give it high strength under torsion and deflection stresses. The profiles are manufactured by a special extrusion process then surface hardened and given a finishing treatment. Quiet operation is assured as the Speedy Rail rollers are encapsulated in a sintered plastic compound shell that is resistant to pollutants. TMT Speedy Railallows the reliable running of the nail gun carriage in a hostile environment. Rail sections could be joined end-to-end using standard bolted dovetail clamps to form the required 9m runs on either side of the conveyor. The rails are provided with a dovetail groove on both sides of the profile to accommodate any fixture attachments without the need for drilling or welding.
