PLC Inc’s Tong Loader heralded a revolution in sorting and loading throughout the world and Acorais proud to bring this unique piece of equipment to Australian sawmills.

The Tong Loader is now manufactured under licence in our Eden workshop to our own exacting standards for Australian conditions, using locally sourced metric components.

We now have eleven units in operation and there are over 400 operating world-wide. The cam-driven Tong Dog design can handle the most difficult sorting operations, at speeds up to 288 lugs per minute. Guaranteed lug fill provides optimal shift production.

 

 

Features:

  • Accurate high speed efficiency
  • Increased efficiency from maximum lug fill
  • Adaptable for all types of production and a huge variety of random lengths and sizes of timber
  • Speeds from 50 lugs per minute to over 250 lugs per minute
  • No hydraulics, no electrics – all simple mechanical parts

The Tong Loader can be fitted into your existing line within a weekend. It has easy installation, easy operation and easy maintenance.
