Elscint recently provided an auto loading feeding system to a reputed Duplex Grinding Machine manufacturer for feeding of bushes having dia 14 mm x 30 mm length to their duplex grinding machine. The bush ends were to be ground and hence the orientation required was “rolling”. The bushes used to come in axial direction in the bowl feeder and hence Elscint provided a special mechanism to ensure that the bushes stand up and then the same were twisted in a gravity chute to make them rolling. Proper poka yoke was provided to ensure that the components come only in the right direction. The scope of supply included, a stand to mount the vibratory bowl feeder, twisted gravity chute, noise enclosure, level control to provide indication about less parts in the bowl and a control panel with isolating transformer as the customer provided 3 Phase supply from their machine. Elscint not only supplied the equipment on time but also provided commissioning of the same at the customer’s factory.
