Elscint Vibratory Bowl Feeder for Syringe feeding

Elscint recently manufactured a Vibratory Bowl Feeder for feeding of a syringe with top diameter 14 mm and length 123 mm. The top side slightly bigger and hence it was possible to hold the same. There were three types of springs having varying diameters and lengths which needed to be fed in the same bowl feeder. Along with the bowl feeder a linear vibrator with 800 mm length track was provided and ahead of the same a sector type gravity track was provided ensuring that the syringes came out horizontal. The speed required was 180 parts per minute and hence a vertical high volume 100 ltr. elevator was provided for extra loading capacity and also ensuring lower input height along with a level controller for the same. The equipment was mounted on a stainless steel stand to ensure adherence to GMP standards. For the various syringes extra changeover tracks were provided with easy and fast changeover. This ensured minimum time lost in the changeover. Against the requirement of 180 parts per minute, Elscint could achieve 200+ speed for all the three sizes of syringes.
