Vibratory Feeder Bowl System with Center Discharge

Vibratory_Feeder_Bowl_Center_Discharge

This vibratory parts feeding system was designed to feed two sizes of a part used in air conditioner desiccant systems. The simple cylindrical shape of the parts allowed the use of a “cascade” type bowl feeder, where all part orientation is performed within the inside diameter of the bowl. This eliminated tooling construction on the outside of the bowl, which along with the right-angle discharge into the vibratory track, resulted in a compact vibratory feed system that met our customer’s space requirements.

Vibratory Feeder Bowl System Feeds Parts with Two Orientations

Vibratory_Feeder_Bowl_Two_Orientations

The assembly operation required two parts being placed simultaneously with the bushing flanges facing away from each other, as shown here. This would normally require two part feeding systems: One feeding the part with the flange up, and another feeding the part with the flange down. We saved our customer the expense and space consumption of a second feed system by designing a single vibratory parts feeder bowl that discharged two lines of parts with one line on top of the other.
