Ramco Automation Systems automatically feed baskets into and through a Ramco immersion system. The automation is designed to handle multiple baskets in synchronous transfer. The transfer mechanism consists of a patented articulating walking beam assembly with pneumatic drive and air-over-oil controls. The arms move left and right on Thomson linear bearings over hardened steel shafts and articulate ninety degrees at the beginning and end of each cycle. The articulating walking beam assembly has multiple shifting arms corresponding to the number of processing stations. Transfer is accurate and smooth.
