Timber


With the ability to sort and stack various lengths and weights of timber, place binding sticks and pick and stack multiple boards simultaneously, SCOTT  can tailor a solution specifically to meet your needs.

With our automated and robotic solutions for the timber industry providing a wealth of benefits, find out how we can help your business:

  • Reduce labour costs
  • Eliminate manual handling of timber and reducing OH&S risks – relieving staff from heavy and repetitive work
  • Utilise a flexible system able to cope with changing product and market requirements
  • Eliminate grade stacking errors

The flexibility provided by an automated and robotic solution allows stacking of short and long timber lengths in one easy-to-use system, eliminating the need for multiple product lines leading to dedicated stacking machines.

Robotic systems can sort and stack in the same process, essentially eliminating the need to pre-sort timber – a major advantage over conventional stacking machines.

Automated and robotic systems have incredibly high resilience, allowing them to work easily in dusty and saw-dust filled environments that are unpleasant or potentially harmful to staff.

This allows staff to be re-allocated to more value adding tasks, reducing the need for heavy physical work whilst simultaneously allowing a safer environment for staff through improved workplace conditions.
