Elscint recently manufactured a special and small vibratory bowl feeder for feeding of saffron pieces. Saffron is a highly costly item and needs to be packed in very minute quantities from 1 gm onwards. The end use was for weighing and packing of the saffron pieces and hence high accuracy and very accurate and precise feeding was required. Elscint used its Model 160 with a stainless steel cylindrical bowl for this application. The specially designed bowl ensured that a very minute quantity was dispensed but the speed at which it was dispensed was very high. Additionally, a frequency controller was provided with the provision for varying the speed of the vibrator through a PLC so that the packing machine manufacturer could use various speeds to fill the required quantities of saffron at high speed
