The Rota-Rack is a device that enables any bar-fed CNC lathe to run unattended for extended periods of time. The unit indexes each time a finished part exits the machine, safely collecting and protecting finished workpieces. It consists of a heavy-duty, welded steel turntable, a solid-state PLC control and an optional integrated conveyor. All contact surfaces are covered with a high-lubricity plastic for workpiece protection. The one-meter diameter turntable provides over 850 square inches of usable surface area and has a payload capacity of 700 lbs.  
 
The design of the device enables it to be used with any CNC lathe that is equipped with a parts catcher. The unit, which operates on standard 110 V electrical power, can be mounted either to the left or right side of the machine and can be adjusted to heights ranging from 11" to 50".
