The Easyset Multi-head Jack-jig has been designed specifically for the fast manufacture of hip and jack trusses. This machine incorporates several features which provide an advantage over production of similar trusses using table presses or drop hammers.

A specially designed jig is used incorporating a fixed bottom chord rail and top chord rail that is adjusted in a few seconds to the pitch and span of the truss.  This ensures that all trusses in a job are speedily setup up and retain the same shape. Multiple C-frame press heads can be positioned as required anywhere along the jig rails enabling all nail plates at every panel point to be pressed simultaneously. Operators are not required to handle nail plates during the truss setup and pressing processes. Nail plate cartridges and feeding system are used to automatically position nail plates on the press platens in readiness for the next press.
