- Elscint Vibratory Bowl Feeder for feeding dia 2.64 mm x 2.8 mm part with 1 mm chamfer
Elscint recently manufactured a vibratory bowl feeder for a small part having dia 2.64 x 2.8 mm length. One side had a small chamfer of 1 mm. The chamfer end was required to be forward in a tube. Most bowl feeder manufacturers regrated this as it was in fact even difficult to observe the chamfer easily by an naked eye. However, Elscint took up the challenge and completed the bowl feeder in less than the quoted time. A speed of 100 parts per minute was observed as against the requirement of 10 parts per minute. The output was given in a tube and a sensor was also provided to switch off the bowl feeder once the tube was full of components. A completely CNC machined bowl was used for this critical application. The bowl had a diameter of just 120 mm and the model used was Model 100 which incidentally also has a drive diameter of 100 mm only.
