Usually vibratory bowl feeders are mounted on rubber grommets or anti-vibration pads. These have female threading at the bottom. If one wants to mount the vibratory bowl feeder on a plate, then you need to screw them from the bottom. This increases work. Secondly, being mounted directly on the rubber grommets or anti-vibration pads, the rubbers grommets have a tendency to shear over time or due to any extra pressure. Plus as they are unprotected, oil / coolant etc. can further damage the same. Elscint provides an extra mounting plate for the vibratory bowl feeder below the rubber grommets / anti-vibration pads. This helps in making mounting of the vibratory bowl feeders on plates or stands very easy but also protects the rubber grommets from coolant / oil and other residue which can reduce their life. This extra base plate is below the rubber grommets and is non-vibrating. Furthermore, the cover or the guard of the vibratory bowl feeder is affixed to this base plate and hence it does not vibrate, further reducing the noise of the vibratory bowl feeder.
