Rotary Feeder for feeding of Needle Rollers
Elscint has developed a unique Rotary Feeder for feeding of Needle Rollers. This unit finds application for feeding of needle rollers to centerless grinding machine. The requirement for this application is for a very high speed feeder (feeding at a speed of above 20 meters per minute). A big factor for most users is that they need to feed a variety of needle rollers in this Rotary Feeder. The design perfected by Elscint ensures that sizes from diameter 1.5 mm till diameter 20 mm can be easily fed in the same Feeder with very less changeover. In fact, the only part to be changed is the outlet tube. The construction is such that the tube can be easily changed without any adjustment required when the needle roller size changes.
The Rotary Feeder has a rugged design with excellent build quality, which is the hallmark of all Elscint products. It is made in Cast Iron Casting and lined with stainless steel for better rigidity. The top is covered with a see through polycarbonate sheet. The loading capacity is almost 20 kgs. The diameter being 390 mm, the equipment is very compact and more versatile than a vibratory bowl feeder. An AC Geared Motor of Elscint Make having Variable Speed is provided with this so that the speed or feed rate can be varied as required. This helps adjust the Feeding Speed according to the actual requirement of the user. The advantage in case of a Rotary Feeder as against a Vibratory Parts Feeder is that Rotary Feeders work at much higher speeds and thus a better feed rate can be achieved. Further, this Rotary Feeder makes negligible noise as compared to a vibratory bowl feeder. The maintenance too is very less, with only greasing of the gear box to be done as routine maintenance. These type of Rotary Feeders are available with Elscint Automation at a very attractive price and fast delivery.
