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.
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.
