Elscint Flame Proof Vibratory Bowl Feeder
Elscint recently completed a project where in the requirement was for feeding of plastic caps in open side facing ground orientation. Along with the vibratory bwl feeder, a 800 mm long linear track was also required for conveying the caps to the assembly station of the customer. The speed required was 70 parts per minute. The main requirement was that the vibratory bowl feeder was to be flame proof as it was to be kept in a combustible environment. Hence, Elscint provided the controls and coil connections in a separate electrical panel, which was housed in a flame proof control box. The vibratory feeder as well as the linear vibrator too was made flame proof and all cables were insulated accordingly. Elscint achieved a speed of more than 100 parts per minute for the diameter 22 mm x 10 mm height caps.
