ROBOTIC SPRAY BOOTH

PRE-TEC was the first in North America to employ robotic automation in a wood products’ spray system application. Using PRE-TEC's previously proven components in conjunction with a six-axis robotic arm, the booths have greatly increased paint transfer efficiency and dispensing system reliability.

ROBOTIC WRAP APPLICATOR

Our Robotic Wrap Applicator was designed for I-Joist Beams or Stacked Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL), in order to increase the product output and free up manpower for more value added activities. One version of the system applies protective wrapping and end sealant to I-Joist Beams or Stacked LVL, while another is available for use in lumber mills and OSB operations.

In either case, the wrap required in length, width, and height is calculated on the fly by measuring the load dimensions.
