Elscint Vibratory Bowl Feeder for feeding small Pumps

Elscint recently manufactured a bowl feeder for feeding of two sizes of  pump which is used in cosmetic bottles. The sizes of the pumps were 30 mm and 25 mm  in diameter with the tube being 50 mm and 40 mm respectively. Both these pumps were to be fed in the same bowl with no changeover. Additionally a gravity chute with sensor was required to ensure that the bowl feeder got switched off once the chute got full. The speed required was 80 parts per minute and Elscint could achieve speeds of more than 120 parts per minute. A small air jet with flow control was used for the orientation. The component being highly polished, a cast aluminium bowl was used with Elscinthane PU coating. This ensured that there was no contact of the pump with the metallic bowl surface, thus eliminating the chances of scratches on the highly polished surface.
