Our centrifugal cap feeder
is designed for high outputs and smooth handling of small plastic parts for feeding assembly machinery and other industrial processes. The disk feeder
is able to singulate items such as plastic cap and value components at speeds of up to 1000 items per minute.
We feed both our intermittent and continuous motion assembly machines in this way where the component is suitable.
Centrifugal feeding bowls
Bulk components are delivered into the systems at a high level, either from the floor above, a pneumatic conveyor or a floor based bulk hopper with an elevator. They fall into a channel where are large disc with format specific cutouts separates them into individual items. They are then brought upwards to where they are orientated, resulting in a single lane feed of sorted plastic components for the assembly system.
We supply bulk hoppers with component elevators ( utilising a food grade flighted belt) for feeding the disc sorter. Typically the bulk hopper volume is 120l., but other capacities of hopper can be supplied according to the size of the component to be assembly and the speed of the down stream assembly machine.
Bottle cap component feeding systems
The main application for this sorting technology is feeding our continuous motion assembly machines with round or small plastic components such as caps or spray pumps parts to be assembled or plastic parts for medical device applications.
