Normally vibratory bowl feeders are made for either bolts or nuts due to the intrinsic nature of the tooling required for each type of component. Both cannot be fed in the same bowl feeder. However, this is now possible with the help of a very complicated tooling but with slight changeover tooling. Bolts from size M 4 to M 14 and Nuts from M4 to M30 can be fed through the same vibratory parts feeder. This can help fastener manufacturers attain a lot of flexibility and adaptability with regard to their vibratory bowl feeders. In order to feed the nuts, the tooling for the bolts needs to be removed and replaced with a different type of tooling which will be used for feeding of the nuts. Of course, side adjustments for accommodating various nuts and bolts will still have to be done for the various sizes
