Our Most Versatile Feeder

August 21, 2019
Hoosier Feeder Company / Hoosier Conveyor Company unveils its most versatile centrifugal feeder, the School Lunch Kit Feeder. A robotic industry customer emphasized two implementations that the feeder must hit by the end of its creation. It needed to be a multi-product feeder where it allowed them to feed wrapped spoons, sunflower seeds, packaged chips, cheese sticks, snack bars, crackers, meat sticks, and much more. The other implementation was that the feeder needed to be robotically compatible.

HFC Releases Heavy Duty Feeder

July 5, 2018
Centrifugal, or rotary, feeders are not typically known for their ability withstand heavy, hard, or sharp parts. Rotary style feeders generally thrive with light-weight plastic parts that would deform before causing damage to the feeder system. Of course, a part is not automatically considered suitable for a vibratory feeder just because the part will not work in a centrifugal feeder.

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.
