a member supported between chains in a slat conveyor. The series of slats form a conveying bed.
One of the supports used to support the material you are machining. They are typically disposable. An alternate to slats, or a complement to them, is to use ceramic balls. It appears to be a good technique, especially for small parts that might otherwise tip or fall in-between slats. A more popular method for accomplishing this is also water jet brick. A common question is, "If the abrasive jet can cut just about anything, then how come the slats don't get cut?" The answer is that they do. As the jet cuts the parts, it goes right on through, and cuts the support slats. However, the slats are thin in the horizontal direction, and very thick in the vertical direction. What happens then, is that the jet gets part way down the slats, and then skips to the side, and does not cut the slat all the way through. Eventually, the slats wear until they look like a bunch of rusty needles. At this point, they are rotated to a less frequently used area of the table, and / or flipped upside down. Finally, the slats will eventually cut in half, at which point they are replaced. See also: Water jet Brick
