The Rota-Rack Parts Accumulator is a lean, cost-effective device that enables any bar-fed CNC lathe to run untended for extended periods of time. The unit indexes each time a finished part exits the machine, collecting and protecting finished workpieces. Benefits of the Royal Rota-Rack include the ability to run a second or third shift with existing equipment and no additional employees; first-shift employees are freed up to handle more productive tasks; risk of part damage is reduced; and parts are kept in order for quality control purposes.

The rack consists of a heavy-duty welded steel turntable, solid state PLC control and optional integrated conveyor. All contact surfaces are covered with a high-lubricity UHMW plastic for optimum workpiece protection. A 1-mm diameter turntable provides more than 850 square inches of usable surface area and has a payload capacity of 700 lbs.

The design enables the Rota-Rack to be used with any CNC lathe that is equipped with a parts catcher. The unit can be mounted either to the left or right side of the machine tool, and it is height-adjustable from 11-50 inches. Programming takes approximately 20-seconds with the intuitive touch screen PLC control, and no machine tool interface is required.
