Gentle parts handling
RNA Step feeders have been designed to be robust and reliable for handling bulky heavy components, oil and other harsh materials on the surface of the product are possible for feeding and orientation.
The RNA step feeder is a compact low noise alternative to a bowl feeding system and in many circumstances components can be tooled without the aid or air.
The RNA step feeder is manufactured in such a way that the static hopper, which has a very low filling height, can be loaded manually. The components are collected from the hopper by elevating plates, pre-sorted and fed to the top without any further feeding technique until they reach the desired transfer height.
Key features of the RNA step feeder are that it operates quietly and without vibration.Benefit
|Quiet operation||Low maintenance|
|Metered feeding||Vibration free feeding|
|Low load height||Little damage to parts to be handled|
Our experienced staff are available to provide advice and offer this system to you which can be adapted and integrated with multi-lane tracks to meet your requirements.
Standard Step Feeder hopper sizes range from 10 to 60 litres capacity and on request can be made to suit your individual requirements.
Available in 2 different sizes (Step width 220 and 320); For each size, a stationary hopper is integrated, with a low filling height allowing manual filling. Band hoppers are available for larger quantities of parts.
Hopper volume, the maximum filling weight, the numbers of steps and the step depth are configurable.
The step feeder – in combination with the linear selection section – supplies product from bulk storage to your production line in singulated, properly oriented condition, and at uniform rates. The parts enter the selection section smoothly without much movement to ensure gentle handling and quiet operation.
