KwikSet Bottom Chord Press Overview Video

Play Icon

The Kwikset Bottom Chord Press consists of a C-Frame press head mounted onto a carriage.

This travels manually between the pressing points of the truss bottom chord set up on a flow-through style jig.

The bottom chord press works alongside a standard Portal or Gantry press system, where the existing press head is used to press top chord nail-plates.

This halves the pressing time of each truss, significantly increasing production.
Designed to work fast, this press is very safe and simple.

It can be supplied with a new press and flow-through style jig, or installed in an existing system.
