HFC Feeds Parts for Vision Inspection

May 3, 2018
Hoosier Feeder Company builds feeding systems for a vast number of different processes in the manufacturing realm. One process that is not immediately associated with manufacturing is part inspection. Extremely large companies and companies that require a large number of high-precision parts, often fasteners, look to automate the inspection process itself which provides a new set of parameters for us to build to. Inspection companies look for a variety of qualities in the parts they inspect, and it is our job to prepare and present the parts precisely the way they need.

Choosing the Right Kind of Hopper or Elevator

April 10, 2018
The functionality of any feeding system stems from, of course, the vibratory or centrifugal style feeder itself. Even though a hopper or elevator is sometimes an overlooked accessory to the system, it can play a very important role in the overall performance of a feeding system. With that, there are many different factors to consider.

Vibratory Feeder Vocabulary

February 18, 2018
At Hoosier Feeder Company, part feeders are our “bread and butter”, and we interact with these machines every day. As the parts feeding industry has grown over time, so has the language that is used to communicate within it. We try to communicate about a projects inner workings as clearly as possible but sometime, we confess, those conversations get a little “wordy”. Here are some vocabulary words that may help shed a little light into your next vibratory feeder project.

Why Vibratory Feeder Projects Fail (And how to prevent it)

February 16, 2018
Vibratory feeders appeal to many applications, however there are some that prove to be more troublesome than others. At Hoosier Feeder Company, we like to ask questions up-front to fully understand the application and easily avoid total project failure (i.e. building the feeder and system to find out that it does not work). When we consider project failure, realistically, it comes down to how seamlessly our system is integrated into our customers production line. You, our customer, can take steps along with us here at Hoosier Feeder Company to ensure your new feeder system easily adds value to your automation project.

Our HFC Vibratory Feeder was Delivered. Now What?

January 31, 2018
In many cases, the arrival of a feeding system to a machine-build is an important stepping stone, as many parts used in the process originate from these feeders. Additionally, the pressures of an aggressive build schedule can be exaggerated when new equipment arrives because that usually means another tier of work is now ready for attention. Despite these pressures, it is important to carefully integrate your new feeding system into your production line to avoid causing more trouble than necessary. Luckily, with some due diligence, many common issues upon receival of a feeder system can be avoided.

From consumable products, to tools and automobiles, the products made in large quantities for the masses must be manufactured in way that is financially reasonable, and Hoosier Feeder Company feeders help our customers do just that.
