Innovative Usage of Vibratory Bowl Feeders – Elscint Vibratory Bowl Feeder for feeding large inclined plastic caps
Elscint recently supplied a vibratory bowl feeder for feeding of large inclined plastic caps. The caps were having a diameter of 35 mm. The height on one side was 50 mm while on other side, it was 43 mm. Due to this there was a tendency of the caps getting locked or falling down in the inclined gravity chute. The requirement was to feed the caps at a speed of 130 caps per minute in “open side down orientation”. Elscint used its Model 400 HD with a bowl diameter of approximately 800 mm for this purpose. Additionally, a gravity chute, mounting stand and a 125 ltr. extra capacity elevator feeder with a PU slat belt was provided. Usage of air was allowed and air was used to change the orientation from axial to standing with open side. The caps were then twisted in the bowl itself to make them all upside down (open side down).
