Elscint Vibratory Bowl Feeder for large Plastic Caps
Elscint recently manufactured a vibratory bowl feeder for feeding of large plastic caps. There were two sizes of caps, one having diameter 76 x 16 mm ht. while the other one was having dia 69 x 14 mm ht.. The bowl feeder was for a large machine manufacturer in Belgium. The requirement was to feed the caps with the open side facing ground and use a linear vibrator with 850 mm long track and to keep the caps ready for pick up by the customer robot. The speed required was just 15 to 20 parts per minute but Elscint achieved a speed of 50 caps per minute for the smaller size caps and 40 caps per minute for the larger caps. Proper overflow arrangement was provided for the bowl feeder and both the units were mounted on a single base plate for easy integration on the customer’s table. Model 400 HD with a diameter 800 mm bowl was used for this purpose along with Model Elscint II linear vibrator for mounting the 850 mm long track. Both the bowl and the linear track were manufactured in stainless steel. The equipment was completed in record time within the Christmas holidays of the customer and shipped by air freight to the customer’s location in Belgium.
