Innovative Usage of Vibratory Bowl Feeders – Feeding of Nozzle Body
Elscint recently manufactured a bowl feeder for feeding of nozzle bodies. There were two types of nozzle body components with the tail diameter being different in them. Elscint designed a bowl feeder to ensure that both these parts were fed without any changeover tooling required. Secondly, Elscint ensured that even the last component in the bowl came out without any manual intervention. The parts were very oily and hence, Elscint not only provided a rough PU coating on the bowl of Elscinthane material but also provided a stainless steel tray for collection of excessive oil below the stand made for the bowl feeder. A drain was attached to ensure that the oil gets accumulated and collected for re-usage. Additionally, a noise enclosure lined with acoustic foam was provided with a see through top acrylic cover. The stand was designed in such a way that the loading height for the operator was just 800 mm (with a 50 mm up and down adjustment). The oriented nozzle body components were taken out in a steel tube.
