One of the most common questions we’re asked at Hoosier Feeder Company is how fast a part can be fed in a bowl feeder system. The answer, as you might expect, isn’t as easy as solving a simple math problem. Several factors determine the speed a part can be fed during assembly, including the following:
After we’ve considered the factors above and better understand the current process, we can then begin to determine the best concept for a bowl feeder system. A large vibratory bowl feeder can move 45 to 50 feet of parts per minute, or 600 inches per minute. A centrifugal feeder can move as much as 3000 inches per minute.
As you can tell, designing a system to meet your company’s unique requirements requires extensive consideration. In the end, however, a feeder system from Hoosier Feeder Company will be extremely efficient and reliable.
