Vibrating Bowl Feeders

Vibraplant can offer a range of automation and controlled feeding equipment for use in production lines and assembly systems where component handling and manipulation are required.  The range of controlled feeding equipment includes vibrating bowl feeders, vibrating linear feeders and vibrating hopper feeders.

All units are typically driven by linear electromagnetic drives and configured to suit the requirements of the application.  Capable of handling and manipulating lightweight or heavy components with simple or intricate designs, they can be used for a wide range of industrial applications such as plastic components and fastener manufacture, automotive, packaging, food and pharmaceuticals.

We identify your business requirements to develop cost effective solutions through design and manufacture.

The range of automation and controlled feeding equipment includes:

VBF – Vibratory Bowl Feeders

Used to orientate component parts and deliver a constant flow to production and component assembly lines.  All bowl feeder tops are fabricated from stainless steel or cast aluminium with stainless steel tooling being used to provide high resistance to wear although additional hardened materials can be fitted if necessary.

VLF – Vibratory Linear Feeders

Can be used individually or as an extension of the bowl feeder system to provide a constant controlled feed or maintain component orientation.

VHF – Vibrating Hopper Feeders

Designed for mass storage of components and used to provide a controlled, trickle feed into bowl feeders.
