What are conical bowl feeders
A conical bowl feeder is an industrial automation device that is used to efficiently sort and orient small parts for further processing. These feeders are designed with a tapered, cone-shaped bowl that spins at a controlled speed. As the bowl spins, the parts are gently lifted and tilted, causing them to move along the bowl’s surface and into the desired orientation.
Typical use cases of conical bowl feeders
A common example of a typical use case for a conical bowl feeder is in the filling and packaging industry. In this application, the feeder is used to sort and orient caps with a bigger diameter then the heights, longitudinal parts, bigger caps and atomizer, spray-pumps, drop-counter used in the filling and packaging. The feeder’s cone-shaped bowl is specifically designed to accommodate the unique shape of these parts, ensuring that they are properly oriented and ready for packaging.
Conical bowl feeders are an essential piece of automation equipment for many industrial applications. They are designed to sort and orient bigger and elongated components quickly and efficiently, making them a cost-effective and time-saving solution for many manufacturers.
