The Super Ario from Tecnara is a compact and portable workpiece accumulator for Swiss machines and small CNC lathes. Super Ario does not require any special interface with the machine and can operate unattended for many hours. For additional protection, the parts tray can be filled with washing fluid to remove oil and prevent damage from abrasion between newly manufactured parts. 

With conventional setups, workpieces dropped from the emitter belt are often scratched, dented and scuffed because they fall onto other pieces in the receptacle tray. Still more damage can occur as the parts pile up and abrade one another. Repair of scratches, nicks and scuffs is a costly manual process that adds significantly to costs, detracts from perceived product quality and can delay shipment. 

The Super Ario is easy to set up and operate. The device is placed to enable the machine’s emitter belt to feed the workpiece onto the collection ramp. The piece slides down the ramp onto the center of the Super Ario receptacle tray. As the turntable rotates clockwise, the work is moved from the center of the tray to the perimeter, providing a clear space for the next workpiece to drop onto the tray. This process repeats until the end of the run. 

If the tray is filled with rinsing fluid, each workpiece is rinsed individually when it arrives on the tray. This also removes any chips or debris from the receiving area. When workpieces fill the receptacle tray, it is manually replaced with a replacement tray and the run continues. Unattended run length depends on workpiece size, processing time and the holding capacity of the receptacle tray. The rotation speed can be set to accommodate the job’s production rate. 

Four Super Ario models are available and are suitable for a range of workpiece sizes, work emitter heights, production rates and run durations.
