Elscint delivers Vibratory Bowl Feeder for feeding metal parts in two rows to Israel
Elscint recently supplied a vibratory bowl feeder for feeding of a sheet metal component in two rows to a customer in Israel. The requirement was to feed this component in separate orientations (legs away and legs towards the bowl centre) in either of the rows. The speed / feed rate required was 20 to 30 parts per minute per row while Elscint could achieve 45 parts per minute per row. A cast aluminium bowl with stainless steel tooling was used for this purpose. The bowl was coated with Elscinthane PU coating for long life and better performance. Ahead of the bowl feeder, a linear vibrator was provided to transfer the components upto the equipment of the customer. Elscint provided the whole system on a single base plate to ensure easy integration at the customer’s end. Further, two separate sensors were provided on each of the tracks so that the bowl feeder could be switched off once both the tracks were full. Additionally, in case any one track was full, air jets were activated inside the bowl to ensure that the components in that particular track fell off the track into the bowl, till the other track too got full (where in the bowl feeder got switched off). Elscint completed this equipment much before the required timeframe and supplied to the customer in Israel by arranging for door delivery by air freight.
