Recirculating Feeder

We designed and built this parts feeder as a component of our automated assembly and packaging solutions.  This feeder is an ideal replacement for traditional bowl feeders because it has no part-specific guide hardware.  It is extremely flexible to multiple part styles or changes in part design.  The feeder consists of 4 variable-speed conveyor belts, 2 rotating brushes or combs, and a vision system.  The various belts and brushes/combs meter and separate the parts before they travel beneath a camera.  The vision system passes the part locations to a robot which picks them from the belt downstream of the camera.  Parts that are not picked are recirculated through the feeder and back to the camera and robot for another try.  The feeder features sanitary stainless steel construction.  It is encoder-synchronized with the robot so that parts are picked while the belt is in motion.  The belt materials, brushes, combs and vision lighting (top, side or backlight) can be configured at order placement.  The feeder is easily purged and changed over to run new parts in only a few minutes.
