Mosca supports continuing growth at sawmill

Leading UK sawmill AJ Scott Ltd has installed a second Mosca strapping machine as part of an investment in a new production line to meet growing demand for its product ranges.


Established in 1960, AJ Scott is one of the country’s leading hardwood round timber merchants, providing hardwood of all species and qualities to customers of varying sizes. The company supplies sawn timber, principally for use in outdoor and garden products, fencing, landscaping, DIY, and pallet and packaging sectors.

The new strapping machine, a Mosca KOF-611, is helping AJ Scott in the production of large volumes of high quality products for its diverse customer base. The semi-automatic model incorporates an optional manual baton inserter and SoniXs sealing head.

The SoniXs sealing head uses patented sonic technology to create the seal between the two ends of strap. The head can be used with either PET or PP strap and offers a seal that is much stronger and far more resistant to tearing than traditional friction seals. It reduces sealing time and requires no heating time which results in a strapping speed that is increased by 50%. There are no fumes or smells produced and there is no residue built up due to melting strap that needs to be disposed of.

The manual baton inserter provides an effective spacer between the packs. It is inserted underneath each pack prior to strapping and this enables a stacker truck to get underneath the packs for efficient stacking, which is more cost-effective than placing them on a pallet.

In addition, the KOF-611 features variable strap tension and has an adjustable working height.

AJ Scott already has a Mosca ROMP-5 stand-alone strapping machine and the high levels of customer service and support provided by Mosca were instrumental in the company selecting the KOF-611 to support its further business growth.

Managing Director of AJ Scott, Robert Scott, states that they are very happy with the machine which is running with, “no problems at all.” Mosca’s team of specialist engineers ensured that any minor hitches during installation were quickly resolved. “The machine runs smoothly and is delivering exactly what we wanted,” says Mr Scott.

Mosca KOF machines are German manufactured, top of the range strapping machines and are available in the UK from its wholly owned subsidiary, Mosca Direct Ltd of Cotgrave, Nottingham. They fit easily into existing lines to replace old or inefficient machines or as part of a new project to improve throughput due to speed and efficiency.
