Welker Part Presentation Slides
"Move the part, not the robot"
The Welker Part Presentation Slide offers a cost and space saving alternative to feed conveyors. Utilizing electric actuators, they deliver a 90% reduction in energy usage compared to long stroke pneumatic slides. Constructed of heavy duty aluminum extrusion, slides are suitable for harsh environments. A single motor unit can drive one or two carriages. Dual slide units allow push/pull presentation, which buries load time in the cycle. Slides can be outfitted with trays for multiple presentations. Floor mounted slides can pull dunnage carts.
- Nested part presentation
- End effector storage/retrieval
- Weld or clinching guns
- Model select
- Tip dresser shuttle
- Overhead shuttle when used with the DB4 lifter
