Elscint recently manufactured and supplied a vibratory bowl feeder and hopper elevator for feeding of sintered parts. There were a total of three parts which needed to be fed through a single bowl feeder. The parts were round and orientation with respect to the face as required. There was a slight collar on one side and this collar was required to be at the bottom. In the bowl feeder, most of the parts came in reverse direction. Hence, orientation was done with the collar on the top and then the parts were reversed in the bowl feeder itself making them collar at the bottom. The speed required was 80 parts per minute. However, Elscint provided a speed or feed rate of more than 150 parts per minute. Also included in the supply was a cubical stand with (+/-) 100 mm ht. adjustment and a gravity chute with a sensor attached to it. The loading ht. of the bowl feeder was 2 mtrs and hence, Elscint also supplied a 75 ltr. Elevator feeder for extra buffer and also to ensure that the loading ht for the operator was restricted to 500 mm only. A level controller in the bowl ensured that the elevator worked only when the quantity in the bowl reduced below a set level. The 75 ltr. Hopper elevator also ensured that the loading frequency in the bowl was reduced. The equipment was supplied to a reputed manufacturer in the South of India.
