The Rota-Rack Parts Accumulator indexes each time a finished part exits the machine, and is designed to safely collect and protect finished workpieces.
The company said benefits Rack include the ability to run a second or third shift with existing equipment and no additional employees, providing first-shift employees free time to handle more productive tasks, reducing risk of part damage and keeping parts in order for quality control purposes.

All contact surfaces are covered with a high-lubricity ultra-high molecular weight plastic to optimize workpiece protection.
