Long roofing screw untangling and packing unit

Manual loading pre-oriented roofing screws

Objective of this project

Long screws, such as those used for roofing applications, tend to form large balls when placed in bulk bins. Several of our customers used to tip these bins on a table and then operators would untangle the screws using rakes or by hand, wearing special gloves. This process is extremely inefficient and results in poor working conditions.

Project outcome

The untangling unit has proven to work very efficiently and reliably. We have used it in a number of projects, feeding either manual or automatic packing stations. This solution improves the efficiency of our operations and eliminates unpleasant and dangerous manual work.
