Ideal for small to medium size truss plants where productive space is at a premium. The MiTek Gantry press is designed to work with flow-through style jigs, providing the pressing capably to any jig setup. The MiTek Gantry press hangs from the building's roof structure so it requires no addition floor space around the jig. The MiTek Gantry press comes standard with a regenerative (regen) valve to speed up the pressing cycle and an auto-retract feature so the operator doesn't need to manually open the C-Frame press before moving on to the next joint. These two features minimise pressing time and maximise output.

The Gantry press' lack of floor mounted frames and tracks means the truss production area can be maximised. Placement of cut component, nail plates and finished trusses can be as close to the jig as the operators want, reducing steps taken by the operators and therefore increase productivity.
