Elscint recently manufactured a vibrator bowl feeder wherein the requirement was to feed small needles having diameter 1 mm with lengths ranging from 25 mm to 50 mm to a centreless grinding machine. The feed rate or speed required was just 15 parts per minute but the small diameter of the needle created a problem as the needles would tend to overlap or jam at the outlet point of the bowl feeder. Due to this reason, most bowl feeder manufacturers had regretted the part. However, Elscint took up the challenge and completed it within time. The output was provided in a tube. Ahead of the bowl feeder, a linear vibrator was provided to take the needles upto the work-rest of the grinding machine. This ensured that the needles were fed continuously and with the same pressure which is most important in case of a grinding operation. Further, the equipment needed to be mounted on a stand. Hence, such a stand was provided along with (+/-) 100 mm ht adjustment. The equipment was completed within 2 weeks of receipt of the order as the customer wanted it urgently. You can have a look at the video of the same.
