Preventive maintenance of a Vibratory Bowl Feeder
Good Vibratory Bowl Feeders are generally maintenance-free. They should only be thoroughly cleaned when they are considerably dirty or after fluids i.e. oil / coolant / water etc. have been spilled over them.
- While doing this, first unplug the mains plug.
- Remove the Cover (Guard) covering the Base Unit / Drive Unit of the Vibratory Feeder.
- Clean the inside of the Vibratory Bowl Feeder, especially the gap between the Coil and Magnet
- Check the Gap between the Magnet and the Coil. It should be maintained as given in the maintenance manual of the manufacturer.
- Tighten all Screws, as they have a tendency of getting loose due to Vibrations over time.
- After mounting the Cover (Guard) and plugging in the mains plug, the Vibratory Bowl Feeder is ready for operation again.
