Bowl feeders are integral to several manufacturing processes. You will find them being used in industries such as electronics, packaging, automotive, glass, foundry etc. They help in speeding up processes such as assembly and packaging hence they are heavily relied upon, which explains their rising demand.

1. What exactly is a bowl feeder?

A bowl feeder or a vibratory bowl is a machine that helps achieve a regulated rate of flow, count, sorting, feeding etc with the help of vibration and gravity. These components are usually fed into another process or machine. While the vibration in a feeder helps establish a predetermined flow rate, gravity helps to establish a particular direction so as to feed the various components. With the help of such feeders, various components can be fed up, down or sideways. Needless to say, it is mostly dry components that are fed with the help of such feeders. Depending on the material to be fed, such feeders come in various sizes and shapes.

2. How a vibratory feeder helps?

The feeders are an apt example of automation machines and they help in reducing manual effort and time taken to complete a particular process. The continuous vibrations help ensure that the small components to be fed do not get stuck anywhere during the feeding process. This is also why such feeders are also used in the construction industry to help maintain a steady flow of construction materials such as cement, sand or gravel. Linear feed rates of such bowls could range anywhere between 10 and 30 or more feet per minute. Components that are small, thin or difficult to orient owing to their shape or size tend to feed slower than larger or heavier parts.

3. Uses of a vibratory bowl feeder

The most typical applications of such bowls are sorting, counting, continuous feeding, controlling the flow rate of components and orientation of components in a predetermined direction. They are often used in various industries including but not limited to the steel and construction industry, packaging industry, metal working sector, electronics industry, pharmaceutical industry, food and beverage industry (for processing as well as packing) among other manufacturing industries.

In case these vibratory bowls are being used in the food and beverage industry, they can be coated with special material to make them safe with food products and to meet FDA requirements. In addition, they can also be coated with special materials in order to control abrasions and noise.

Apart from saving time, bowl feeders help save manual labor and this enables you to engage your available manpower in other productive tasks. However, it is always advisable to purchase automation machines from a reputed manufacturer to ensure optimum value for money.
