Automated Cells & Equipment introduces the latest version of its WS8100 Workstocker. The system features a greater part-handling range, increased processing speed and the ability to handle both raw and finished parts, all while using less floor space.

The flexible part-storage system can be used with machine-tending automation. When coupled with a robot or pick-and-place device, the system is said to free up operator time by providing a continuous stream of parts to the production system.

Access for loading the system occurs outside the automation cell, promoting uninterrupted part load and unload of the machine tool. Zero Clearance sliding doors are featured so that additional floor space is not required during the part loading process. The product is equipped with eight stations with 18" of usable height and a 100-lb capacity each. The rapid-adjust, three-pin magazine handles 1.25" to 7.3" part diameters when OD located, and 2.5" to 8.5" part diameters when ID located. The system may be used as an eight-station, raw-parts supply system or as a four-station, raw-parts supply with the remaining four stations utilized for finished parts.
