Sort-Flex Linear Feeder with 3D printed Bowl

High Performance

Linear feeders convey oriented components from bowl feeders over short or relatively long distances, thereby creating a buffer storage. They enable a consistent flow of orientated components from the bowl feeder to escapement devices creating product accumulation prior to a machine or handling unit.

Linear feeders from RNA enable a linear sorting (linear sorting track). They can also be used for the orientation of components and provide higher outputs with a mulit-track design. Misorientated components are returned to prefeeders via a chute and vibration tray. In addition to horizontal conveying of components, linear feeders can be used to handle irregular supplies of parts from upstream equipment, creating a buffer store and smooth flow for further processes.

Sizes can be up to 2 metres long and are available to suit every possible application. RNA linear feeders share bowl feeder drive units multi magnet design, are robust, compact and virtually maintenance free.
