Feeding systems

A feeding system selects, orients and positions the parts to facilitate and enable their subsequent handling and assembly. Vibratory systems or feeding systems receive the bulk parts, position them in the required position and supply them to the next step of the production process at the frequency and rate necessary for the proper functioning of the process.

THE PARTS OF A POWER SUPPLY SYSTEMTHE DECISION TO AUTOMATE

Dynamic feeding contemplates all the requirements derived from handling the parts from their bulk reception to their positioned delivery, one after another, to their automatic processing.

This process is the result of combining several specific techniques:

1) The driving force which is the basis of the equipment used, for providing the parts with an advancing direction.

2) The selection-positioning-rejection of the parts along their advancing path, with a view to ensuring a final flow of these, always delivered in the same position.

3) That inherent to transporting the parts, i.e. the configuration and handling of the sliding surfaces along which the parts must advance, based on their geometry, their asepsis requirements, etc., and their subsequent image features.

4) That of the interrelationship of complementary equipment to obtain autonomous systems for automatic feeding to machines or process lines, which basically consist of a Selection Unit, Autonomy Unit and a Transfer buffer Unit.

A feeding system is the interrelationship of two or more functional units that configure a homogeneous whole susceptible to accepting all physical and sequential resources available. Selecting, guiding and positioning the parts to enable their subsequent handling and assembly. The vibratory bowl feeder receives the parts in bulk from a tank or container (autonomy unit), places them in the required position and supplies them to a transfer buffer unit until reaching the handling unit of a machine.

Two types of power supply systems are defined:

The basic system consisting of a positing units (vibratory feeders) and a transfer buffer units (linear vibrator) mounted on a plate or support table. It is an ideal feeding system for implantation purposes (link function), and allows statistical variations in cadence to be averaged (buffer function).

The basic systems also allow the introduction of additional controls to avoid excessive pressure, reduce noise, equipment wear, inadequate treatment of parts, machine micro-stops, etc…
The complete system consists of three pieces of equipment: the autonomy unit, the positioning unit and the buffer link unit interrelated on a plate or support table. With the various combinations, it is the ideal formula to meet all kinds of requirements.

TAD feeding systems are at the forefront in terms of part selection, orientation and positioning, offering a high degree of quality and reliability for all sectors (pharmaceutical and healthcare, cosmetics, electronics, automotive, locksmith, toys, food and beverages) and vibrating industrial processes (machining, assembly of assemblies, insertion of inserts in plastic injection, welding, packaging, die-cutting, printing, riveting).
