Elscint recently manufactured and supplied a high speed vibratory bowl feeder for feeding of metal pins to a company in the USA. There were various sizes of pins having head size 2.8 mm to 3.6 mm and tail size 1.2 mm to 1.8 mm. The length varied from 14.50 mm to 19.50 mm. The orientation required was head up and expected speed / feed rate was 250 parts per minute. The major requirement was that there should be ease of adjustment between the various sizes. Elscint provided a very versatile tooling for this purpose, which made the changeover very easy. The speed or feed rate achieved was between 300+ parts per minute. Elscint also supplied the linear vibrator with a track of 400 mm length along with controllers for the bowl and the linear vibrators. A sensor was placed on the linear track to switch on / off the bowl feeder when the linear track was full. As the equipment was to be shipped to the USA, it was to run on 110 V / 60 Hz supply. This was made possible with the special coils which Elscint manufactured. You can watch the video of the equipment.
