Elscint recently manufactured a Vibratory Bowl Feeder for feeding of rubber tips / bungs. The requirement was to feed the tips in 8 outlets at a speed of 30 tips per minute per row. This came to 240 tips per minute. The tips were to be oriented in head down orientation. Elscint used Model 250 with a outer track bowl for this application. A single row was taken from the bowl and oriented. Thereafter, the same was bifurcated into 8 rows in the bowl itself. Thereafter the same was taken onto a linear vibrator with 800 mm length which had eight outlets. The requirement being pharmaceutical, the bowl, linear track and all the parts touching the rubber tips were made from Stainless steel grade 316 L. The assembly was mounted on a Aluminium extrusion stand with a mild steel plate which too was provided sstainless steel cladding. Elscint achieved a speed of 40 parts per minute per track (320 parts per minute) through the eight outlets. You can watch the video of the bowl feeder.
