Front and Back Transfer Systems address conventional limitations.

The need to retrofit existing presses with servo transfers posed new challenges to transfer suppliers. Conventional “through the window” designs limit the range of products that can be run on a press. The maximum part size is dictated by a combination of press window size, transfer bar width and transfer clamp stroke required. Valuable press bed area is not fully utilized. The Wayne Trail Model WTTBD Front and Back Mounted Transfer System was specifically developed to address these production limitations.

Front and Back mounting allows parts to be run that are virtually the full width of the press window. Press mounting brackets attach in areas that do not interfere with existing coil feed or conveyor equipment. Commonized lift/pitch/clamp modules are mounted to these brackets on both sides of the press. Modules are designed to minimize motion and weight, thus keeping inertia to a minimum. The standardized design allows manufacturing in quantity, which enables quicker deliveries, lower costs and continual product improvement. The units can be moved ‘offline’ quickly and easily, providing excellent access for die maintenance or change-over.

The Wayne Trail Front and Back servo transfer system provides a high performance solution that is affordable and easy to implement.
