Leg machines

Our leg machines nail together wooden or composite pallet blocks with legboards (also known as bottom deck boards). They are equipped with IMH hydraulic nailing tools and pneumatic nail boxes. This nailing system has many benefits when it comes to production of quality legs and these are some of the features that we consider important for an efficient and sustainable production of quality wooden pallets:

  •  Each individual hydraulic nail tool handles large variations in material dimensions while maintaining each nails depth in relation to the material surface.
  • The possibility to use and easily fill up with standard bulk nails in the nail box.
  • Detection of that the nails have arrived in each nail tool with auto-repeat picking if not.
  • Easy and flexible configuration in control panel with possibility to save the settings for each leg type in the OKM-P™ machine.

IMH™ leg machines are available in right- as well as left-versions in order to match different layout solutions. Due to their modular design, they can be used as separate devices or together with suitable conveyors. They can also work as devices in a pallet production line and always with an appropriate level of automation for your needs.

We have two main types of standard leg machines. The OKM™ designed with one board magazine and a pneumatic feeding system for simultaneous positioning of the blocks and legboards in nailing position. The OKM-P™ machine that is more advanced and equipped with two board magazines and two separate hydraulic drive systems for individual positioning of the blocks versus legboards in nailing position. Both machine types are fed with blocks via belt conveyors.

All IMH™ standard machines are based on the 1500-series which means that they generally can produce wooden pallets or pallet legs etc. with a width of roughly 1500 mm (60 inch). For several of our machine types there are optional widths available in the 2000-, 2800-, and 3000-series. Please contact us for more detailed information about our different series.
