The alignment conveyor improves log feed to Kadant Carmanah's stranders used in the production of OSB.
The product provides operators with improved wood yield, strand quality, and higher production throughput. The design incorporates a series of rolls and lobes that rise and fall from underneath the conveyor through a bed plate with corresponding slots. As these implements rotate, they advance and align the logs in the infeed chamber. The rolls and bed plate are supported by heavy steel framing to allow years of low maintenance and trouble-free operation.
