As a basic device in the feeding of parts, the step feeder is built so that the associated stationary hopper can be filled by hand with its low filling height. The size of the hopper can be adjusted, depending upon the application and component parts. The parts are conveyed upwards by means of counter-rotating lifting plates from the hopper bin and thus reach the desired transfer height without further conveyor technology. Due to the transport upwards and the shape of the lifting plates, pre-sorting of the parts already takes place.
The step feeder FlexType ST works with quiet and vibration-free operation. With a range of linear sorting integrated with the FlexType ST series, RNA offers a powerful overall concept for certain specific tasks where a traditional feeding systems may not be appropriate. And high output rates even for parts with the smallest features for orientation can be handled by the step feeder FlexType ST.
