If you think hand-selecting and inspecting parts is a tedious process, then it’s time you got introduced to vibratory bowl feeders. These machines are widely used to feed individual components in an automation line. These self-contained instruments comprise a parts-orienting bowl that is mounted on a drive unit that vibrates. This drive unit consists of a variable amplitude controller to control the vibrations that help move components placed in the bowl. As the bowl vibrates, the parts placed in it move through a circular track which is inclined at the desired angle. These bowls are specially tooled to sort and orient the parts to meet the requirements of the production line.

This machine is also known as a vibratory feeder since it feeds components into the production assembly line with the help of a vibratory mechanism. Let’s take a look at the advantages of using such a feeder:

1. Hand selecting and sorting components is a very labor intensive and time consuming task. It is also a very repetitive and monotonous task that subjects laborers to motion injuries.

2. On the other hand, using a vibratory bowl for feeding is one of the quickest and cost-effective ways in which you can select and orient parts. This is especially useful for those operations that require a continuous supply line of oriented components. For instance, it is best suited for machining, packaging, assembly, inspection, printing etc.

3. Such feeders can also be integrated with other parts handling equipment with the use of some auxiliary equipment. Systems integration can be carried out for equipment such as supply hoppers, gravity power tracks, positioning devices, tables, sound enclosures among other things.

4. These machines are a great way to give you a competitive edge because they not only help you improve your production time, but also help in lowering labor costs. This step will ultimately add to your bottom lines.

5. Speaking of the overall advantage of installing a vibratory feeder in your production line will help you achieve a better product and lower rejection rates. A better product would mean a better competitive edge over other players in the market.

6. Such feeders can be used with components of varied sizes, shapes and mass.

A bowl feeders is increasingly used in industries such as pharmaceuticals, electronics assembly, metal working, food processing and packaging and the fast moving consumable goods sector. You can talk to your chosen manufacturer or dealer about the necessary track coatings depending on the parts to be fed with the help of such bowl feeders. These coatings protect against traction and damage to the part in question. It’s important to choose the width, depth and length of your track in order to achieve the most optimum productivity.
