Bronco Assembly System Features Powered Gantry
Bronco Pallet Systems has developed a new automated pallet nailing system, the Mustang 4000 Pallet Assembly Machine. It features a powered nailing gantry that moves from side to side.

The Mustang 4000 gantry nails the pallet bottom on its first pass, hesitates while the operator turns the pallet and positions the top boards, and then nails the top as it returns to the original home position.

The power nailing tools are always firing when the gantry is in motion. The machine holds coils of 3,000 collated nails, which means less time is spent reloading nails.

The Mustang 4000 is adjustable for different size pallets and skids, including wing pallets and pallets made of three or four stringers.

Finished pallets are stacked automatically when the operator activates a foot-controlled switch. A Rollout Modification and Accumulator Table reduces demand on the forklift operator and causes less interruptions to the operator of the pallet assembly machine.

The Mustang 4000, which comes with a full five year warranty, requires only 120 psi and 110 vac.
