Elscint recently manufactured and supplied a vibratory bowl feeder for feeding of stainless steel balls and having a diameter of only 3 mm. The speed required was just 2 balls per minute. However, the customer required singulation for the same i.e. one ball to be released on receipt of a signal. This required highly accurate singulation mechanism. This was provided with the help of a Festo make cylinder. A highly accurate sensors were also required to ensure, the bowl feeder is switched off once the tube carrying the balls is full and to provide a signal to the customer once a single ball is singulated. For both these, a ring type sensor was used. The equipment was completed within the customers timeline and successfully installed at the customer’s place. You can watch the video of the vibratory ball feeder.
