Wayne Trail has been providing “through the window” style transfers to the industry for over a decade. The design has been proven through millions of cycles in factories around the world.

This type of transfer design provides maximum visibility in the die area and enables a variety of coil, blank and finished part handling options in stations that can extend within or even beyond the confines of the press window areas. A rugged, high precision drive train provides accurate, repeatable positioning. Transfer bar options and finger/gripper configurations can be customized to solve a limitless range of die and part handling requirements.

The through-the-window system can be mounted on either new or used presses. Various control packages are available to optimize integration, or suit customer preference. As with all Wayne Trail transfer systems, a touch-screen PC based operator interface with full featured prompts, diagnostics and fault logging capabilities, is standard.
