Centrifugal and vibratory feed rates recede and flow from moment to moment, meaning in some seconds the parts are back to back, and in other seconds there are gaps and inconsistent part line-up. The Hoosier Feeder power feeder wheels are designed to contact each part, rotating at a specific speed near the feeder discharge to pull separation and/or slow the part flow down so that the next machine receives the exact number of parts per minute it requires.
This mechanism, widely used for various kinds of inspection, is perfect when back-to-back part flow creates issues for your automated system. For purely inspection purposes, it can be important to provide a camera or sensor with enough time to assess and execute whatever action is programmed. If your system needs a regulated part feed, Hoosier Feeder Company can help find the right power feeder rollers for you whether you are looking for rubber power feeder wheels or plastic power feeder rollers.
Almost all automated processes will utilize some sort of parts feeder, but in order to correctly implement one, it is important to know the major differences.
