RamTough Automation automatically feeds baskets into and through Ramco immersion washers. The system handles multiple baskets in synchronous transfer. The transfer mechanism consists of an articulating walking arm with pneumatic drive and air-over-oil controls. The walking arm moves left and right on Thomson linear bearings over hardened steel shafts and articulates ninety degrees at the beginning and end of each cycle. The walking arm assembly has multiple shifting arms corresponding to the number of processing stations. Transfer is accurate and smooth.
