Elscint, recently manufactured a bowl feeder for feeding of large spouts in the orientation Cap up / Tail down in three rows. The spouts were having a cap of dia 32 mm and length of 37 mm. Elscint manufactured a step type bowl having diameter of 1100 mm to be used with its Model 630 drive unit which is a four coil version with 1500 VA rating. From the single track, the spouts were bifurcated into three rows and taken forward. The requirement was to get the spouts in tail down position. Most of the spouts came in different directions and they were turned into the right orientation. Afterwards, the spouts were taken forward on a linear vibrator of 850 mm length and a centre distance of 80 mm was maintained between each of the spouts. Speed required for 60 spouts per minute per row and Elscint achieved a speed of 70 spouts per minute per row. A sensor was provided on the innermost row of the linear vibrator (which was the slowest one). This ensured that the bowl feeder could be switched off, reducing noise and power requirement. You can watch the video of the equipment.
