Elscint Vibratory Bowl Feeder for feeding soft Plastic Bottles
Elscint recently manufactured a vibratory bowl feeder for feeding of plastic bottles having diameter 27.5 mm x 55.50 mm length with a open mouth on one side. The requirement was to get the bottles in open / mouth side up orientation. The dimensions of the bottle were such that the bottles moved in the bowl feeder in axial or lengthwise direction. Hence, Elscint employed certain tooling to ensure that the bottles got into the required orientation of standing with the mouth up. It was ensured that any bottle which in any other direction fell back into the bowl. A speed of 80 bottles per minute was achieved very easily. Elscint used its Model 400 with a stainless steel step design bowl with a track width of 50 mm and suitable pitch. A digital controller was also provided with the equipment. The bottles were for pharmaceutical purpose and hence a stainless steel bowl was used for this purpose. You can watch the video of the Elscint Bowl feeder for feeding the plastic bottles.
