Centrifugal Feeder orientates and feeds Caps

RNA have designed and developed a centrifugal feeder bowl system to feed and orientate caps.

RNA skills:-

  • Machine building and integration
  • Machine and process control
  • Centrifugal feeding
  • Project management
  • Developed with GAMP Pharmaceutical standards

Product:

Plastic caps (⌀70mm)

Performance:

400 components per minute

Sequence of Operation:

Components are loaded into an RNA inclined-belt hopper with a filling volume of 800 litres and dosed into a centrifugal feeder which feeds and discharges components onto an outfeed conveyor. An orientation sensor is fitted to check caps orientation. Miss-orientated components will be detected and recycled back into the hopper via a vacuum air system; Correctly orientated components are fed onto the customer’s existing line.
