WS8100 Workstocker Mate for Robots

The Model WS8100 Workstocker Mate for robots is a compact part storage and presentation system, which is ideal for use with machine tending automation. When coupled with a robot or pick and place device, the WS8100 Workstocker Mate frees up valuable operator time. This device may also be used to store finished parts.

How Does It Work?

The WS8100 has two operating modes a normal mode whereby parts are presented for pickup by a robot or other device and a raw/finished mode is used to both dispense raw parts and accumulate finished parts.

To use normal mode, select from the HMI and load a stack of raw parts onto each of the WS8100’s eight stations and then press the cycle start push-button. The WS8100 Workstocker will then indexes and elevates a stack of parts to a fixed position for unload by a robot or other automation equipment. Each time a part is removed from the top of the stack, the stack is raised presenting the next part for pickup.

To use raw/finished mode, select raw/finished from the HMI and load a stack of raw parts onto ever other station of the WS8100’s 8 stations and then press the cycle start push-button Note: The lifter plates usually different between raw and finished stations. The WS8100 Workstocker Mate will then index and elevate a stack of raw parts to a fixed position for unload by a robot or other automation equipment. Each time a part is removed from the top of the stack, the stack is lowered and the WS8100 indexes and elevates the plate from the adjacent station for placement of finished parts and then lowers, bringing the next part up for pick.
