6 Outlet Vibratory Bowl Feeder with Hopper Elevator for feeding razor cartridges

Elscint recently completed an order of feeding systems for a leading multi national shaving products manufacturing company. The scope of supply included two vibratory bowl feeders with 3 outlets each for feeding of the razor cartridges along with covers, an extra capacity hopper elevator feeding to both the bowl feeders, stand, a noise enclosure along with a 6 outlet linear track of 1 mtr. Length. Elscint used its Model 630 vibratory drives with a outer track bowl for this purpose. Each bowl was almost 1250 mm in diameter. Thereafter the cartridges where fed onto a 1mtr. length linear track mounted on Elscint LF IV linear vibrator. The total equipment was mounted on a table and a single enclosure was provided to ensure noise reduction and safety. The enclosure was lined with acoustic foam and a 10 mm top polycarbonate cover was provided at the top. For feeding to the vibratory bowl feeder, a vertical elevator was provided, which ensured less floor space and convenient loading height for the operator. Almost 15000 cartridges could be accommodated in the hopper of the elevator. The elevator had two outlets which were fixed with pneumatic cylinders to ensure that either one or both the bowls could be replenished based on the level of cartridges in the bowls. In case both the bowls were full, the elevator was switched off. The complete electrical panel was mounted separately on a totally different stand. This resulted in the controllers not being affected by the vibrations of the vibratory feeders. The complete equipment was built and shipped to the customer’s location in North India and commissioning and installation too was completed immediately.
