Centrifugal Feeding System with Vision Inspection

RNA have designed and built a centrifugal feeding system to feed and orientate filled capsules. The task required capsules to be orientated with major diameter leading and discharged end to end all one way at a speed of 300 parts per minute.

RNA skills:-

  • Centrifugal feeding
  • Vision Inspection & Quality Control
  • Assembly & Testing
  • Machine building and integration
  • Machine and process control
  • Pick and place
  • PLC control
  • Project management




Due to the nature of the products, it was impossible to mechanically check the orientation of the capsules. Therefore, a vision system was applied to meet the requirements of this application perfectly.

The filled capsules are stored and transferred by bulk feeder on demand to a centrifugal feeder, then discharged from the feeder to the conveyor out-feed. An orientation station (camera station) is fitted with the conveyor out-feed to check capsules orientation. Correctly orientated capsules will pass through the station and continue along the conveyor out-feed; Incorrectly orientated capsules will be detected and recycled back into the bulk feeder via a vacuum air system.

Key Features

  • Bulk feeder
  • Centrifugal feeder
  • Conveyor out-feed
