Innovative Usage of Vibratory Bowl Feeders – Feeding of O Ring vertically
Elscint recently supplied a vibratory bowl feeder for feeding of O Rings in vertical orientation. The size of the O Ring was dia 18 x 1 mm thk. Elscint used a stainless steel conical bowl for the same. Ahead of the bowl, a gravity chute was provided to get the parts straight forward in rolling orientation upto a distance of 220 mm from the bowl periphery (as required by the customer). Thereafter, the oil seals flowed vertically down, perpendicular to its previous path. The chute was 150 mm down from the bowl feeder mounting plate.
