Bulk Hoppers / Elevators / Singulators
Elscint offers bulk hoppers for providing higher capacities. Usually, the number of components which can be loaded in a Vibratory Bowl Feeder is constrained by the Weight and the Volume of the components. In order to increase the loading capacity, usually Auxiliary Hoppers are provided. The disadvantage of Auxiliary Hoppers is the extra space which they occupy and plus the extra cost and electrical consumption and wiring required for the same. As against this, Silos offer the advantage of increased loading capacity and they do not require any Electrical Supply. The increase in height is also nominal. The overall Table size also does not increase to that extent. Though the Silo has a lot of advantages, it cannot be used for all types of components and this is where the Bulk Hoppers come into play.
Elscint can offer bulk elevators for providing higher capacities. Usually, the number of components which can be loaded in a vibratory bowl feeder is constrained by the weight and the volume of the components. In order to increase the loading capacity, usually auxiliary bulk elevators are provided. The disadvantage of auxiliary bulk elevators is the extra space which they occupy and plus the extra cost and electrical consumption and wiring required for the same. The advantage is the ground level loading which is possible with bulk elevators. The loading height in case of bulk hoppers increases but in case of bulk elevators, reduces substantially. Bulk elevators are most suitable in case the vibratory bowl feeder is kept at a higher height.
Elscint offers a unique pneumatic escapement. It is designed in such a way that on receipt of a signal from a relay / sensor or PLC, the escapement is actuated and a single component is released. While releasing one component, the one behind that component is held in place. The best part of the Elscint pneumatic escapement is that it works on just one pneumatic cylinder as against two pneumatic cylinders which most manufacturers offer. Results not only in saving the running cost but also the initial cost. The Elscint pneumatic escapement is optionally provided with Elscint vibratory bowl feeders. However, Elscint can also sell only the pneumatic escapements which customers can integrate at their end. The full Elscint pneumatic escapement comes with a FESTO make cylinder (other makes are also available), a F/R/L unit and solenoid valve. Additionally, Elscint provides all the electrical inputs like transformer and other circuitry so that using it becomes very hassle free and easy for the customer. Elscint has got two models of the pneumatic escapement and depending upon the component dimensions, the correct type of escapement can be recommended by the trained application engineers at Elscint. Due to the very high popularity of this concept, the Elscint pneumatic escapement is kept in stock and can be provided within a short period and at a very competitive price.
