Elscint completes 12 Vibratory Bowl Feeders for terminals

Elscint recently completed orders for a total of twelve vibratory bowl feeders for feeding of 6 different types of terminals. The orders were from five different customers. The basic terminals remained the same though the dimensions and structure as well as the requirements from the customer were different. However, all the bowl feeders had a 400 to 600 mm long linear track. Four of the bowl feeders also required singulation ahead of the linear track for ease of pick up by the pick and place unit of the customer. The required speeds ranged between 40 parts per minute to 80 parts per minute. Elscint has developed special expertise in the handling of terminals which make manufacturing these types of bowls fast. The construction being modular, Elscint has become the go to bowl feeder manufacturer when it comes to terminal feeding. All the bowls were made of cast aluminium with the tooling being in stainless steel. The bowls were coated with Elscinthane PU coating. Model 250 with a 3 liter bowl capacity / 12 kgs by weight were used for all these applications.
