Don't Let Height Constraints Hinder Your Production

March 17, 2023
In a recent vibratory feeder project, surrounding equipment presented height limitations that prevented the use of a standard hopper. To accommodate the space constraints we designed a custom solution with an integrated hopper and conveyor prefeed elevator system. The result? A reliable and low-maintenance system that effectively singulates and orients metal push nuts within a compact space.

Vibratory bowls are naturally noisy. The electromagnetic coils that pull and release metal blocks beneath the bowl typically operate 60-120 times per second. The continuous movement causes the parts to vibrate against the bowl and other parts. The system becomes even louder based on the type of product being circulated.  Depending on the part material and shape, the noise level of a feeder system can quickly become harmful to unprotected ears.

Here are some vocabulary words that may help shed a little light into your next vibratory feeder project.
