Innovative Usage of Vibratory Bowl Feeders – Orienting, Feeding & Blow Feed of Shoe Holder Pin
Elscint recently supplied a vibratory bowl feeder for feeding of Shoe Holder Pin in two outlets. The pins were having dia 8 mm one side and dia 4 mm on the other side with the middle pin being dia 2 mm. The length of the pin was 30 mm. The requirement was to blow feed the pin with the bigger diameter forward in two outlets. Elscint used Model 250 with cast aluminium bowl having two outlets for this purpose. The pins were then oriented with the bigger diameter side on top and taken forward onto a linear vibrator, namely Model Elscint III. Thereafter, a fixture was designed to push the two pins with a single cylinder by 20 mm on one side and the pins were then blown up with air jets into flexible tubes to be used by the customer at two separate places. Elscint provided a complete solution with pneumatics and other elements so that the customer could give just a 24 V DC signal to activate the blow feed.
