A vibro feeder is an instrument that uses vibration to “feed” material to a process or machine. It use both vibration and gravity to move material. Gravity is used to determine the direction, either down, or down and to a side, and then vibration is used to move the material. They are mainly used to transport a large number of smaller objects.
Versatile and rugged vibratory bowl feeders have been extremely used for automatic feeding of small to large and differently shaped industrial parts. They are the oldest but still commonly used automation machine available for aligning and feeding machine parts, electronic parts, plastic parts, chemicals, metallic parts, glass vials, pharmaceuticals, foods, miscellaneous goods etc. Available in standard and custom designs, vibratory bowl feeders have been largely purchased by varied industrial sectors for automating high-speed production lines and assembly systems.
