Elscint recently manufactured a vibratory bowl feeder for feeding of small diamonds, having size 1.2 mm to 4 mm. The requirement was to feed them with the table side down. Most of the diamonds came lying down and thus could not be used. Only the ones which were with the table side down were used and rest were recirculated inside the bowl. A major requirement was to get all the diamonds out of the bowl within as less a time as possible. The bowl was completely machined out of stainless steel as there can be no crevasse where any diamond can get stuck or remain. The outlet track too was machined and welded to the bowl. It takes high precision work, both machining as well as tooling for manufacturing such parts where the orientation is difficult. Fortunately Elscint has high end 5 Axis CNC Machines available to do such a job and further this is backed by highly skilled and experienced bowl toolers which make Elscint the go to feeder supplier. Though the speed required was less, it was pertinent that each and every part comes out of the bowl feeder. You can watch the video of the bowl feeder here.
