Centrifugal Feed Systems

Centrifugal feed systems (also known as "rotary feeders" or "descramblers") use rotating discs driven by electric motors to move parts. In a centrifugal feeder, the feeder bottom and side wall rotate to drive parts to the outer edge of the bowl rim for orientation selection. Performance Feeders uses centrifugal feeders for applications with special requirements such as high feed rate and gentle part handling.
