The new Welker Part Presentation Slide offers a cost and space saving alternative to feed conveyors. Utilizing electric actuators, they deliver a 90% reduction in energy usage compared to long stroke pneumatic slides. Constructed of heavy duty aluminum extrusion, slides are suitable for harsh environments. A single motor unit can drive one or two slides. Dual slide units allow push/pull bin presentation, which buries load time in the cycle.  Slides can be outfitted with trays for standard part bins or floor mounted to pull dunnage carts. Presentation slides can also be used vertically, loading from the mezzanine is the ultimate floor space saver. Providing no pinch points or catch points, the part presentation slide is safer for the operator than indexing or accumulating conveyors.

Applications: nested part presentation; end effector storage/retrieval; weld or clinching guns; model select; tip dresser shuttle; and overhead shuttle when used with the DB4 lifter. For more info visit
