In automated handling of parts and manufacturing subassemblies, it is necessary when dealing with small parts to provide trays to support the parts and thereby easily handle many different kinds of parts with the same handling equipment. The storage trays of parts need to be stacked for efficiency of space and yet be capable of moving the trays by means of conveyor lines.
