  • The RoofTracker IIITM roof truss roller press represents the latest evolution of the long-running RoofTracker series of roller presses. After employees assemble a truss, an operator mounts the operator platform, presses a button, and rolls the press over the truss to embed the plates. It's that simple and easy to operate. After the truss leaves the table, MiTek® Stand-Alone Conveyors move the truss through a MiTek® Finish Roller to complete the embedment of the plate.
  • The press now includes two laser scanners as standard features. The laser scanners continuously check for obstructions while the press operates. If a laser scanner detects an obstruction, it slows the press. If the obstruction remains, the laser scanner activates an emergency stop. The laser scanners eliminate the light curtain system while offering an advanced safeguard to prevent injuries or damage.
  • The press has options to integrate it into any existing system and fit various workflows. It is available in three lengths and five voltages. It accommodates side-eject systems as a standard option but may also accommodate end-eject systems by using a gantry lifter. It features the option of a bottom-chord operator platform or a top-chord operator platform depending on preference.
  • The press features a cutting-edge variable frequency drive that controls the powerful 15-hp motor. Moving at up to 148 feet per minute, the press rolls quickly and efficiently to provide the initial embedment so that the truss moves quickly to the next stage.
  • The press functions alone or in conjunction with other MiTek® presses, such as another RoofTrackerTMpress, a RoofGlider® press, or an AutoPressTM head.
