HOMAG’s new screw separator system enriches timber construction

Published on : Monday, July 1, 2019

HOMAG has launched the new screw separator system to increase efficiency of timber construction. Endless possibilities may be explored with the new automatic separator system for loose screws. The separator system is able to handle both stand length screws as well as long screws those with a length of 160 mm, 220 mm or 250 mm or even longer.


Generally frame works as well as elements are attached with screws. It is expected that EU will nearly Zero-Energy Building Strategy 2020 will be implemented with the help of double walls. Producing such a façade requires screwing the frame works of the two wall elements together. Now this lengthy, complex process can now be carried out in a shorter amount of time and with less expense with the power of automation. Several Swedish companies have decided to screw the plates together.

To provide the right solutions to meet these requirements, automatic screw units are available for both the frame work station and the multifunction bridge. These units will streamline various processes and make them more economical, including:


  • Screwing of plates and studs in an angle of 45° with screws (190 mm length)
  • Automated change of screws for the automated screwing of roof elements with 160 mm scres in an angle of 90°
  • Attaching gypsum plaster board to the wood frame construction – Screwing the installation level to the interior of the element
  • Screwing the substructure for ventilated facades using long screws


According to Managing Director Hansbert Ott – someone who considers the screwing process “as much a topic for the future as the automated insertion of insulation” – these screws could be implemented in numerous areas of wood work in the long term. The new technology could even inspire timber construction companies to come up with new designs that are superior to traditional ones, whether this be in terms of their statics, fire protection or other qualities.
