Elscint Rotary / Centrifugal Feeder for Battery Parts

Elscint recently manufactured a rotary / centrifugal feeder for feeding of assembled battery caps having diameter 10 mm x 4.5 mm ht. The requirement was to feed the same at a very high speed with the metal part up. Unassembled parts too were to be removed as there were chances of mix up.

The Elscint Rotary / Centrifugal Feeders have a very unique design which is rugged and highly robust for feeding of parts which require high speed feeding. The build quality too is excellent with all the components touching parts being made in stainless steel. Elscint uses a dual drive for its Rotary Feeders. Three Phase AC Geared Motors of Elscint Make are used for this purpose. Standard units come with a Variable Frequency Drive so that variable speed can be offered, which helps adjust the feeding speed according to the actual requirement of the user.

Accordingly, Elscint used its dual drive Rotary Feeder with a stand and enclosure for the same. The top cover of the enclosure was of polycarbonate sheet. As the number of parts dumped in the rotary feeder is less vis a vis the speed at which it operates, Elscint provided a 50 ltr. hopper feeder for the same. A level controller was provided to ensure a start / stop arrangement, so that the number of parts in the rotary feeder is the same at all times. This results in a better flow and operation of the rotary feeder. The rotary feeder as well as the hopper was mounted on a single square tube stand. Proper arrangement was provided to segregate the unassembled parts as well as the ones which were not properly assembled.

The customer’s requirement was for as high speed as possible. Elscint could achieve a speed of 1500 parts per minute in the rotary feeder
