Innovative Usage of Vibratory Bowl Feeders – Feeding Diodes

Vibratory bowl feeders are used for feeding and orienting of small components. There are numerous uses of these feeder bowls. Even diodes can be fed in a vibratory part feeder and that too in rolling orientation. Diodes being very thin having diameter of dia 1 mm and length of 50 mm have a tendency to come out of the Vibratory Bowl Feeder in Axial manner. However, using innovative ways of orientation, one can get the Diodes in rolling orientation. Additionally, singling or escapement can be provided which in turn helps in releasing the Diodes one at a time. In fact, Elscint has perfected this type of feeder bowl and a speed of approximately 100 Diodes per minute can be easily achieved.
