Innovative Usage of Vibratory Feeders – Feeding of Plastic Caps

Bowl feeders are regularly required for feeding of Plastic Caps, mainly for feeding to Automatic Capping Machines as well other Special Pharmaceutical and Consumer Goods feeding Machines. These caps have to be oriented in one particular direction, which can either be Open side facing Sky or Open Side facing Ground or even the open side facing center of the Bowl or away from it. Speeds in such cases are very high, in the region of 60 to 300 pieces Per minute depending upon the size of the Plastic Cap. Caps of even upto diameter 120 mm or more can be fed in a vibratory bowl feeder. In most cases, in addition to a bowl feeder, a gravity track is required for taking the caps from the bowl to the conveyor / capping station which the cap is placed on the bottle. Further a stand too is required for mounting of the bowl feeder
