Vibratory Bowl Feeder for Plastic Pen Caps in two rows

Elscint recently manufactured a Vibratory Bowl Feeder for feeding of pen caps in two rows. These pen caps are made of plastic and are light weight due to which orientation was very difficult as the open side has to come forward. In addition to this, there was a small clip on one side which was required to be on top. Elscint perfected the orientation of these parts and hence can provide feeding at a very high speed of even more than 60 pieces per minute (for the 40 mm length caps) per row with correct orientation. Further, the parts coming in the wrong orientation were turned to achieve more feed rate. The unique orientation concept perfected by Elscint was provided at two places to ensure that even a single wrongly oriented component does not come out of the bowl. Additionally, a gravity chute is provided, where too the clip does not lose its orientation. Elscint used a cast aluminium bowl with its popular Elscinthane PU coating in green colour. The tooling was made in stainless steel with full argon welding.
