Lateral chain moulder feeder designed for end-to-end feeding of surfaced wood strips.

Will accommodate material from:

  •  8' to 16' long,
  • 3/8" - 3 ½" thick and from
  •  ¾" – 12" wide 
  • Feed speeds up to 600 FPM

  • State-of-the-art AC inverters handles the daily rigors of the market allow the BAF to eliminate the mess, inefficiencies and inaccuracies of hydraulics while using only 5 total horsepower @ 480volts.

    The enhanced PLC controls permit effective feeding of random length and resawn material with high operator efficiency. Integral timers allow material to be fed end-to-end, or in a discrete fashion with a desired gap between work pieces.

  • This quote also includes a 5' wide Buffer deck to keep the BAF feed deck constantly supplied while eliminating unwanted side loading of work pieces at the fence which can retard the feeding process. The buffer deck is integrated into the BAF operations via the system PLC


  • The driving force of the feeder is an 8-½" diameter steel roller in the bed of the chain deck directly powered through a heavy duty Cardan-type drive shaft. A 2 HP inverter duty Sumitomo gear motor furnishes superior torque and horsepower and coupled with the intelligence and robustness of the inverter drive system provides unsurpassed capacities for demanding material.

    The urethane pinch roller is controlled by a laser sensor and adjustable timing device to perform the pinching and feeding action necessary to rapidly feed work pieces end-to-end. The machine comes standard with one 2" urethane roller and one 3/4"" urethane roller for narrower strips.

    A speed adjustment knob at the operator’s panel provides easy, precise and immediate control of the feed works.

    Chain Deck
  • The lateral transport chain deck surface of the BAF is approximately 5’ deep x 12' long and has four arms of stainless steel table-top chains running over UHMW wear strips for maintenance free operation. A one-horsepower gear motor with inverter drive provides power and speed control to the chains.
  • The chain deck comes standard with our on-demand operation. In this mode, instead of running continuously, the chain deck of the BAF is controlled by the system’s PLC and runs only when a work piece is needed. This pulsing action of the chains holds and feeds the material on the deck in an orderly fashion while still maintaining end-to-end feeding to the moulder. It reduces side loading pressures while providing superior performance on bowed, warped and resawn material.

  • The on-demand mode is further enhanced by a chain deck delay timer which allows the piece being fed to the moulder to completely clear the deck before the next piece is moved to the fence. This smooth and highly reliable feed system permits the feeding of short and random length material while eliminating the need for the operator to straighten material that has shifted on the deck allowing him to focus on proper grading and orienting of strips onto the chain deck.

    System Requirements
  • Electrical — 5 amps @ 480 Volts
  • Pneumatic — approx. 4 scfm @ 80 PSI

    System Details
  • A specially programmed PLC controls all operations of the system. An HMI panel on the control top gives the operator easy access to all timers and includes a troubleshooting screen for all sensors and timers.
  • The electrical and pneumatic systems are shipped complete and ready for immediate hookup to your plant supplies.
  • All machines are built on precision, heavy steel welded frames manufactured to stringent standards.
  • The BAF is completely assembled and tested in our plant and then shipped ready for immediate installation at your site.
