Receive parts in perpendicular loading
Finger columns are steel formed towers containing fingers that support parts during transit. These fingers automatically move out of the way when the parts are removed to allow unimpeded exit from the stillage. Similarly the next finger is automatically presented when one location is activated.
Finger columns are a versatile solution for packaging having advantages such as;
Vertical finger columns
Vertical finger columns hold parts in a vertical manor, these are the simplest form of the product and accommodate parts at a pitch as small as to 30mm.
Diagonal finger columns
For parts that do not nest in a linear fashion the diagonal column allows for parts to stagger on increasing the pack factor compared to a normal rack.
Counter Balance finger Columns
This type of column uses weights to allow the finger to pivot back naturally to create the automatic aspect of this product. This is the more common product in our range.
Torsion Spring finger columns
When Space is in short supply the size of the finger column can be decreased down to a minimum using the torsion springs to create the automatic fingers.
