Czechmate: International Success for AV Timber Engineering
Apex Truss Press delivered and installed to award winning pre-fabricated building manufacturer in the Czech Republic.
Leading UK timber engineering machinery manufacturer, AV Timber Engineering recently completed a truss press build and commissioning to Nema in Olešnice, Czech Republic. This isn’t new territory for AV Timber Engineering, the press joins it’s Eastern European siblings who have been making trusses in Latvia and Slovakia for a number of years.
The 35 ton Apex press has a 4.8m throat and a 33m table length, combined with a new, improved pneumatic lifting system. Scott Heyes head of the Timber Engineering Division explains; “The key difference with this installation was the redesigned truss lifter system using a comprehensively planned pneumatic lifting system. This features a remote-control system which allows the press operator to control both sides of the lifters independently from the press control station. The result is a much-improved lifter system, saving time when removing the trusses from the jigging systems.”
Scott continues ‘The projected growth in modular buildings looks very positive for our industry and we are actively looking to bring the efficiencies and safe working practices of our machines to businesses in the sector.”
