VIBRATORY FEEDERS

Orientech are experts in the design and fabrication of vibratory feeders that provide you with simple cost-effective solutions. Over 25 years experience in providing the automation integration industry with premium performance.

Orientech is renowned for providing solutions that will work as promised.

Optimal performance requires the right materials in the construction, such as :

  • Stainless steel bowls
  • Stainless steel bowls for pharmaceutical applications
  • Cast aluminum
  • Hard-anodized to protect against wear

The design of a vibratory feeder starts with your parts. The needs assessment is a critical part of the process. We highly recommend letting us validate the output of a component prior to locking in the design the remainder of the line.

Orientech analyses your parts to determine the vibratory feed characteristics required since each vibratory feeder bowl is ultimately designed to progressively stabilize, sort and verify the parts as they are being fed.

Characteristics of your parts may often require smooth and careful handling for these to move within the vibratory feeder.

The appropriate finish is used for your specific application, such as :

  • Rubber
  • Teflon®
  • Epoxy
  • Brushlon®
  • Cork
  • Anodization
  • Electro-polishing
  • Surface-texturing
  • PTFE coating (polytetrafluoroethylene)

Several industries, local regulations, and/or GMP require respecting a certain decibel rating.

Orientech offer Sound enclosures when needed.

Interchangeability is achieved with quick tool change-over parts, designed from the beginning of your project. It is critical to provide all the desired parts from the beginning, including the color or material, even if it comes out of the same tooling. Not all parts react the same way when on a vibratory feeder.

Most common options order with Orientech vibratory feeders include :

  • Mounting stands;
  • Dust covers;
  • Sound enclosures;
  • Discharge chutes for “quick dump”;
  • “Go/no-go” gates to control the flow of parts;
  • Dust extraction points;
    • to remove fine particles that may have become mixed with product.

CENTRIFUGAL FEEDERS

Orientech centrifugal feeders have been engineered to rapidly deliver a wide range of pieces at high speeds. Centrifugal applications are chosen depending on the part’s characteristics.

Orientech is renowned for providing solutions that will work as promised.

The design of a centrifugal system starts with your parts. The needs assessment is a critical part of the process. We highly recommend validating with our engineering team, the required output of a component prior to locking in the design the remainder of the line.

Orientech centrifugal feeders are designed to meet industry 4.0 standards and may communicate with your existing equipment.

Final design options vary, depending on the speed required, as well as the fragility of your parts, include :

  • Diameter of centrifugal feeder
  • Single disk centrifugal feeder
  • Double disk centrifugal feeder
  • Regulatory requirements, such as FDA

Typically centrifugal systems are ordered within a complete automated assembly system, or other Orientech solutions.

These may include bulk feed hoppers, elevators and orientation devices such as :

  •  Twist chute
  •  “C” chute
  •  Gauge rollers
  •  Conveyors
  •  Spacing wheels

Select material choices used in Orientech centrifugal feeders:

  • Built on a rigid, welded and painted steel frame
    • Available Stainless Steel for certain applications
  • U.H.M.W. center disc
  • Unique cast aluminum bowl
    • hard anodized to protect against wear
    • features a curved profile allowing the central feed disk to be set at infinitely variable angles to maximize feeding efficiency
    • designed to accept larger than usual parts

Also available :

      • Caster
      • Stainless steel
      • Teflon®
      • Dust covers
      • Safety features
