Ideal in many automated assembly, packaging, and inspection processes. These machines are durable, most of which are made from stainless steel and other high-wear materials and contain very few moving parts, also making them extremely reliable if build and implemented correctly.
Linear feeders convey oriented components from bowl feeders over short or relatively long distances, thereby creating a buffer storage.They enable a consistent flow of orientated components from the bowl feeder to escapement devices creating product accumulation prior to a machine or handling unit.
Vision systems use cameras and controls to orient parts that could not otherwise be oriented using conventional techniques in vibratory feeder bowls and centrifugal feeders. Vision systems analyze each part that passes the camera and based on the desired orientation, the part can be allowed to pass or the controls can actuate an air jet or mechanical cam to either properly orient the part, or send it back into the feeder for recirculation.
