BULK STORAGE HOPPERS
Vibratory bulk storage hoppers are used to load parts into a bowl feeder, giving large storage capacities and providing several hours running time. The hoppers can also be used to trickle-feed awkward components (i.e. components that easily tangle) into bowl feeders, therefore increasing feed rates and efficiency from the feeder. These units are best applied when the bowl feeder is situated at comparatively low level. Various sizes of hopper are available, to suit most bulk storage needs.
Where our standard range of hoppers can not be utilised, due to either floor layout constraints or loading capacities, then special units can be manufactured. These units can be of virtually any shape of size, and either manufactured from standard materials or to pharmaceutical specifications.
