Innovative Usage of Vibratory Bowl Feeders – Feeding of Rivets and Screws without stoppage at high speed
Vibratory bowl feeders can be used to feed rivets and screws at a very high speed. Such components are usually required to be fed in head up orientation. The orientation is usually done on a Slot. Though this method is good for orientation, it reduces the speed of operation and requires usage of pneumatic air for increasing the feed rate and removal of unoriented rivets / screws and also requires a sensor for stopping the vibratory parts feeder when the chute is full. However, the vibratory parts feeder developed by Elscint Automation not only achieves a very high speed or feed rate but also does away with the usage of pneumatic air for orientation and removal of Component as also the sensor. Either of the five models of Elscint vibratory parts feeders can be used for this purpose depending upon the size and loading capacity required. This unit has a lot of applications in varied industries.
