Vibratory feeder bowls are the most versatile type of parts feeder. These feeders handle parts with a size range from approximately sixty cubic inches to parts that are very small.
Vibratory feeders occupy a minimal amount of space while orientating, selecting, and sorting parts in the most cost-effective manner possible.
The most common types are straight-wall designed with outside construction. Other variations such as funnel feeders, ball bearing feeders, and spiral cascades are also available.
Hand fabricated tooling presents parts in a set position. This positioning is accomplished by either a mechanical cam/sweep or air assistance.
Tooling construction uses a combination of forces such as gravity, balance, and rotational vibration to deliver a specific orientation as required.
High-Speed Drive Units: High-speed drives are used on systems with extreme rates per minute. They're built stronger and can withstand higher speeds without breaking apart. Larger drive unit springs, coils, and bases are supplied.
Low-Profile Drive Units: Low-profile drives provide the vibratory feed motion for our custom-designed bowls. An electromagnetic coil that drives the leaf springs positioned around the circumference of the drive unit creates the motion.
Tray Feeder Drive Units: Tray feeder driver units are designed for use with vibratory bulk hoppers. This unit feeds parts from the hopper to the feeder and can be utilized on any particular hopper requirement for moving bulk material.
Straight Line Drives: Straight line drives are used for horizontal tracking of parts from the feeder to the workstation. These drive units provide smooth forward motion on an inline to transfer oriented parts along the track at desired rate of speed.
Pneumatic Drives: Pneumatic drives are used for feeding and orienting parts in highly sensitive conditions, such as flammable or explosive environments.
