Innovative Usage of Vibratory Feeders – Vibratory Bowl Feeder feeds Nuts and Bolts together
Normally Vibratory Bowl Feeders are made for either Bolts or Nuts due to the intrinsic nature of the tooling required for each type of component. However, Elscint has developed a special type of Vibratory Bowl Feeder which can feed various types of Nuts and Bolts in the same Vibratory Bowl Feeder with slight changeover tooling. Bolts from size M 4 to M 14 and Nuts from M4 to M30 can be fed through the same Vibratory Bowl Feeder. This helps fastener manufacturers attain a lot of flexibility and adaptability with regard to the Vibratory Bowl Feeders. The changeover tooling is made in such a way that a range of bolts and nuts are fed in the same bowl feeder. The outlet of the nuts is blocked while feeding the bolts and while feeding the bolts, the outlet of the nuts is blocked. This makes the changeover tooling very easy.
