SteadyScan© Log Transport System (US Patent # 6,811,022 B2)

Stop lying to your optimizer! Give it a chance to get a true scan by installing the ASM SteadyScan© Log Transport System. This system tracks arrow straight and rock steady, and is the only conveyor that can take full advantage of today’s high performance log optimization software. After all, what good is a sophisticated optimization systems if you can’t hold the log steady though the scan zone?

  • Each chain flight can be equipped with replaceable nylon wear pads. The nylon pads help the chain to run incredibly smooth and quiet while also reducing the horsepower required to drive the system. A steel-on-steel guide system is also available.
  • Our SteadyScan© chain runs on precision machined, replaceable stainless steel V and flat raceways.
  • Each section of raceway is bolted down to a machined and keyed surface in the bottom of the chain trough. This allows the sections to be replaced without having to realign the system.
  • ASM's large-scale CNC milling machines allow us to machine large conveyor sections in one set up. This creates a much more accurate and easy to assemble log line.
  • All chain is heat treated and assembled with 1-1/8" diameter pins.
  • 40" diameter head and tail sprockets reduce excessive chain articulation, which can shorten the life of the chain.
  • Vector drives on each SteadyScan© provide very precise log positioning.
  • Every SteadyScan© system is pre assembled at our facility to ensure precise fit before it arrives on your jobsite.

Chain Lube System:

The ASM Series 513 high pressure chain lube system meters out the precise amount of lubricating oil needed to ensure maximum chain life without wasting oil. Approximately one gallon of lube oil per hour is applied at critical points on the Log Transport system. The lube system is activated* on timed intervals, which are synchronized to the chain running speed and operating time. The lube system applies oil only when chain is actually moving, thus conserving lube oil and eliminating unnecessary clean up.

* Lube oil pump- is activated by the customers PLC system.

ASM Series 820 Rotary Log Kicker:

  • Fairfield Torque-Hub® Gear Reducer mounted inside the kicker body, out of harm's way.
  • Low cost, readily available hydraulic motor mates directly into the torque hub. Belt drives, roller chains, and couplings are completely eliminated.
  • Floating Torque arm/mounting flange isolates the drive system completely. All end loads are supported by an oversized tapered roller bearing.
  • Simple, Clean, Tough!
