Innovative Usage of Feeders – Rotary Feeder for feeding of Coins
Elscint Automation has developed a innovative Rotary Feeder for feeding of coins. Various Coins having different thickness and diameters can be fed through the same Rotary Feeder with slight changeover tooling. The Rotary Feeder has a rugged design and is made in cast iron and lined with suitable material for better rigidity. An AC geared motor of Elscint make having variable speed is used. This helps adjust the feeding speed according to the actual requirement of the user. The advantage in case of a rotary feeder as against a vibratory parts feeder is that rotary feeders work at much higher speeds and thus a better feed rate can be achieved. Other parts that can be fed through a rotary feeder are bottle caps, cylindrical rollers, needle rollers etc.
