2 Simple Ways to Reduce Vibratory Bowl Noise

November 10th, 2022
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.

HFC Releases Heavy Duty Feeder

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.

Mentorship at Hoosier Feeder Company

by

For years, there has been a growing shortage of skilled labor in virtually every industry. The well-intended countrywide push to educate young people was pigeonholed to college degrees and bypassing most labor, which now seems like a shortsighted plan. The feeder industry was built by craftsmen that take pride in their work and thrive on translating cerebral activity into physical form. Although the issue of limited skilled labor is slowly being addressed across the country, Hoosier Feeder Company is taking proactive steps to educate youth in that regard. Mentorship, especially in the niche industry of parts feeding, is integral to the survival and imminent growth of the manufacturing industry and we full-heartedly believe in practicing just that.

HFC Feeds Parts for Vision Inspection

by Anna Frick

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.

Robotics in the manufacturing industry has changed the way we make our things as a society. From programmed welders on car assembly lines to palletizing robots at the end of a packaging line, robotics are becoming more and more involved in our manufacturing processes. Hoosier Feeder Company wanted to supplement the steady increase of their use and offer a parts handling machine that was optimized for use with robots. After spending time in various manufacturing plants using the growing technology, we found our opportunity and are excited to present the Hoosier Feeder Company Flex Feeder.
