Low Profile - Bi Directional Belt Feeder with Reservoir Conveyor

Our low profile series belt feeder provides the ultimate solution in producing high production rates, with extremely gentle parts handling and minimal noise level. Our versatile feeders are sized and configured to suit your specific requirements. Belt Feeders can be furnished with rubber belt, plastic chain or steel chain with a wide variety of drive options.

Separate bulk supply loads product into reservoir conveyor as required. Product is conveyed on inclined reservoir conveyor, gently transferring parts on to horizontal orientor conveyor, traveling in the opposite direction.  Parts transfer along tooling wall, mis-oriented parts are guided off orientor tooling, gently sliding into reservoir conveyor for part recirculation.  Correctly oriented parts pass through orientor tooling discharging off end of orientor conveyor.

Features:

  • High Production Rates
  • Floor area space saving
  • Gentle feed operation (one of the most gentle feeders available)
  • Easily accessible adjustable tooling to accommodate a wide range of parts
  • Conveyor construction varies dependent upon application (typically Belt, plastic or steel Chain)

System Benefits:

  • Economical automation
  • Quiet non-vibratory operation
  • Reduces manual labor Options:
  • Allows increased production
  • Eliminates hazardous manual handling/loading

Options:

  • AC Motor 120Volt or 230/460 Volt 3-Ph drives
  • DC Motor adjustable speed control
  • Right hand or left hand discharge
  • Manual purge gate to quickly empty the system for change over

Space Saver Bi-Directional Belt Feeder with Elevating Belt Storage Hopper

This newly designed Bi-Directional Belt Feeder is unique in today’s parts feeding market, designed  to compete with vibratory bowl feeders. Our spacing saving Belt Feeder meets the high production rates that parts feeding demands. Featuring gentle product handling with low noise level and reducing overall plant floor space.  With our integral storage bin area the need for an additional bulk storage area is eliminated.

Our spacing saving Belt Feeder has the ability to feed a large variety of parts by the use of a cleated inclined storage conveyor traveling in the opposite direction of the orientor conveyor. Our versatile feeders are sized and configured to suit your specific requirements. Belt Feeders can be furnished with rubber belt, plastic chain or steel chain with a wide variety of drive options.

Parts are stored and elevated on an inclined cleated conveyor, transferring parts onto a horizontal orientor conveyor traveling in opposite direction. Parts travel along tooling wall, mis-oriented parts are guided off orientor tooling, falling back into product storage area for part recirculation. Correctly oriented parts pass through orientor tooling discharging off the end of orientor.
