This option allows the RTA unit to serve as a surge table or 90° transfer unit between conveyor cells. This capability reduces the need for attended operation in production lines that intermittently stop and start.
The stationary fence attaches to a guide assembly that is installed beneath the turntable; this acts to keep the fence in one place above the disc perimeter as the table turns. The fence position is easily adjusted, to allow for different products or operations to be handled from the single work cell.
This option can be ordered with new RTA units. It is not available as a field retrofit.
