Automated Drywall Corner Trim Applications
From Structus Building Technologies
Structus Building Technologies will unveil its latest innovation at the 2008 Intex Expo.
The company’s new Autoslam™ machine automates drywall corner trim applications by using a single 500' roll to produce outside/inside corners, off-angles and L Trim to specified lengths. Autoslam™ allows contractors to input large sets of specified corner trim lengths and profiles at one time, making it ideal for multi-unit buildings and large commercial projects. Once data has been entered, the machine automatically applies joint compound, and produces and cuts those corners within seconds. Run time averages 120 linear feet of corner per minute.
The machine is the brainstorm of entrepreneur and CEO Tim Smythe, and has been in development for more than two years.
