New centering log clamp for UPT-250S
The line for processing thin wood UPT-250S is now standard equipped with a centering clamp of a log with updated kinematics. The main purpose of the clamp is to help the operator when positioning the log on the feeding table, the operator does not need to accompany the log at the entrance to the machine. Under the action of a system of levers and shock absorbers, the log is automatically leveled in the middle of the feeding table, which in turn increases labor productivity.
This system is simple and reliable, the new kinematic scheme of levers, shock absorbers and hydraulic compensator provides optimal pressure on moving logs in the diameter range from 100 to 250 mm. The hinged structure is paired with a claw guard, which prevents sawdust and large branches from flying out towards the feeding table.
So that the centering clamp of the log does not interfere when cutting logs with a high degree of curvature and protruding branches, the rollers of the clamp can be quickly fixed in the upper position.
The new design is compatible not only with the UPT-250S thin wood machine, but also can be installed on the previous models of the UPT-250M series.
