Vibratory Feeder for Plastic Cap Assembly

PROJECT:

Medical vibratory feeder take parts from bulk, orients them, & delivers them for placement in an assembly.

Situation:

At Hoosier Feeder Company, we take pride in producing reliable and highly efficient vibratory feed systems and components. In this project, we were contracted by a customer in the medical industry who required a vibratory feeder for plastic caps. This machine needed to be able to take parts from bulk, orient them in the correct and repeatable position, and deliver them to a robotic cell for placement in an assembly. The system required a number of different components, including a hopper/elevator prefeeder, vibratory parts feeder, horizontal air conveyor, lexan sound enclosure, and a precision ground machine base with vibration isolation leveling feet.

Solution & Results:

Constructed of stainless steel, this precision vibratory feeder works with very tight tolerances (.020") to select and orient the part for presentation. Our client trusted our reputation as a leader in feeder system design and engineering, selecting us to build this challenging machine. When completed, the new parts feeder system consisted of 4 lanes, each running at 25 ppm, for a total of 100 parts per minute. We designed, manufactured, and installed this project for our California client with a turnaround time of just 12 weeks. Our customer was impressed by the highly accurate output of this machine, and has ordered a second system for the same part.
