We are leaders in the market for providing best range of PRIMARY INDUSTRIAL FILTERS, high pressure blowers, TRUCK BINS, Control Panels and finger jointers
The WP baghouse filter is built for large industrial dust collection applications and requires a support structure. This filter is a primary dust collector with bag section on top which uses reverse air for cleaning of the bags. Dust is pulled from inside the bags and blown back into the cyclone section at the bottom of the primary filter.
Western Pneumatics designs high pressure pneumatic conveying systems which use positive displacement blowers to create the air and pressure needed to move product efficiently. Blowers are pumps sized specifically for air volume (CFM) and pressure capacity. High pressure systems use low air-to-material ratios to move product to a single or muliple locations on a plant site in an energy efficient manner.
The WP truck bin is the heaviest well built bin in the marketplace. Storage capacities range from 15 units to 42 units for single bins. Truck storage bins can be placed end-to-end to create as much storage capacity as required. Leveling screws, compactors, hanging and hydraulic baffles, and wind enclosures can be added to the truck bin to suit your specific needs.

The model GR3500 is a fully automatic grinder designed to grind your side, top and bottom knives in the head. 4-AXIS CNC CUTTER GRINDING The table travels automatically using a linear ball screw. 4th axis to automatically feed the grinding wheel down. QUICK ADJUST PROBE The mechanical probe indexes from the cutter and is simple to setup. Provides solid backing to the knife being ground. HEAVY DUTY CARRIAGE The carriage traverses on a heavy duty linear recirculating ball nut and rail system. Workhead and the head carriage have their own guide bearings for added capacity.ADDITIONAL FEATURES The grinding wheel automatically infeeds the amount the operator selects. Programmable wheel wear compensation feature. There are 10 savable cutter grinding scenarios for quick setup. AC frequency inverter allows infinitely variable speed selection between 1725 and 3450 RPM. Workhead travel, cutterhead rotation and wheel infeed are all controlled by Servo Drives allowing for a more precise grind. Grinder is fully enclosed for coolant containment and safety. Coolant gaurd opens for top load of large heads.
The automatic board stacker is a unique modular unit capable of stacking multiple length boards end-to-end, or single-length packages up to 24' long directly out of a finger jointer board press, or any type of lumber processing system, with no manual handling. Manual adjustments are provided to vary package widths from 42" to 48" with variations in lumber thickness automatically compensated for by optical switches. System control is provided by a PLC with an operator's push button station to start and stop the system as well as provide manual override controls. The stacker operation is fully hydraulic which allows for user-friendly, fully adjustable speed and operation control. Hydraulic power is provided from a state-of-the-art, fully protected, pressure-compensated pump unit. Additionally, packages are built on a roll top scissor lift which can be powered for optional automatic discharge. A 20' long accumulation roll case is also available to store finished packages.
