Elscint, recently manufactured and exported a vibratory bowl feeder to feed O Rings having diameter 20 mm x 1 mm thickness to Spain. The requirement was to feed the O rings in “Flat” orientation at a speed of 50 O Rings per minute. As it was being exported to Europe, the aesthetics was very important. Elscint used its Model 250 for this purpose and used a Stainless steel / Inox cylindrical bowl for this purpose. The output achieved was 200 O rings a minute, much more than the requirement. Further, proper overflow arrangement was provided in the bowl feeder with a return tray. The outlet point was required to be at an angle of 15 degrees and was made in a machined part which was attached to the bowl. The bowl feeder was completed and exported in just 20 days from receipt of the order and was sent by air freight to the customer.
