Innovative Usage of Vibratory Feeders – Vibratory Bowl Feeder for small balls
Elscint recently manufactured a special and small vibratory bowl feeder for feeding of small balls having diameter dia 4.76 mm. The customer required three outlets with gravity tubes for each of them. Balls have a tendency to roll back in a bowl feeder and do not move up the track. However, in the special type of bowl designed by Elscint, this does not take place. A bowl having diameter 250 mm was fabricated and a speed of 200 balls per minute per outlet was achieved. There being 3 outlets, proper overflow was required for each of the outlets and the same was provided by making a special arrangement. The tooling ensured that even the last ball got fed. Flexible tubes of 1 mtr. Length were attached to each of the outlets for connection to the customer fixture.
