Innovative Usage of Vibratory Bowl Feeder – Elscint Vibratory Bowl Feeder for feeding Plastic Bottles
Elscint recently manufactured a bowl feeder for feeding of small plastic bottles having diameter 21 mm x 48 mm length with one side closed and one side open. The requirement was to get the bottles in closed side facing sky orientation. The dimensions of the bottle were such that the bottles moved in the bowl feeder in axial or lengthwise direction. Hence, Elscint employed certain tooling to ensure that the bottles got into the required orientation. Thereafter, proper tooling was employed to make the bottles with the open side facing sky fall back into the bowl. A speed of 80 bottles per minute was achieved very easily. The bottles were used for storing homeopathic tablets and hence a stainless steel medical grade bowl was used for this purpose.
