Product Overview

Put covers and fire socks onto laminated mattresses with ease using this automated solution

The pushing machine takes manual force out of assembly. By utilizing a pushing arm to gently guide product into a fire sock or cover, operators don't need to lift or move any heavy product. Four operators usually work at this section with two pushers, one station for the fire sock and the other for the cover.

See how two pushers create the assembly line.

Features

  • Automates material handling so operators don’t need to move heavy product
  • Add one or two pushers to automate your assembly process for fire socks and covers

Where The Pusher Fits In Production

The pusher usually comes after lamination and trim is complete and you have a finished laminate. In assembly, a facility might have two pushers, one for fire socks and one for covers, like you see in this example line.

Closer To Full Automation

Automating this process with the pusher system brings your facility closer to full automation.

No Heavy Lifting

Improve facility ergonomics by reducing the amount of lifting and keeping work within arms reach at waist height.

Stay Consistent

Use the same machinery to add fire socks and covers in the same assembly area.
