Elscint vibratory feeder for feeding Bullet Cartridges

Elscint recently completed a project which had three bowl feeders. One was Model 400 while the other two were of Model 250. The requirement was to feed bullet cartridges in multiple rows. One side of the brass cartridge was open while the other side was closed. The requirement was to feed the same with the closed side forward. The diameter was the same (dia 10 mm) for all the cartridges but the lengths varied. In case of Model 250, the lengths varied between 10 mm to 20 mm. Two outlets were required in both the bowl feeders with the closed side forward. The open end of the cartridges were uneven makin
In case of Model 400, the lengths varied from 23 mm to 40 mm (total 6 sizes). The no. of rows in this case was 4. Having multiple rows with such orientation is always a challenge and Elscint provided easy changeover tooling for the same. The changeover took just 2 minutes. Outlet in all these cases was given in flexible tubes which the customer could attach to his press where the parts were fed for further drawing. Elscint used its Model 400 with a cast aluminium bowl with Elscinthane polyurethane coating for this application.
