Feeding sensitive parts
In low-frequency feeders, the material being conveyed does not rise from the conveying track but slides forward with very little noise. Use of these systems provides a means of conveying and sorting that guarantees absolute protection for the parts and an absence of wear.
As the conveying speed of these devices is lower than for a vibratory bowl feeder with micro ejector technology, these devices are suitable for simple sorting tasks in the lower performance range with a main focus on protecting parts and reducing noise.
FMB is the sole worldwide supplier of these systems to two major corporations for engine parts.
A low-frequency feeder essentially comprises the following components:
- Low-frequency sliding conveyor drive of type BGF
- Control electronics
- Sorting bowl top with orientation facility
- Coating (according to goods to be conveyed)
