WHAT ARE LINEAR FEEDERS?

A Linear Feeder transports already orientated components in the horizontal plane.

They work alongside a bowl feeder; thereby keeping the bowl fill-height level at a minimum.

They also provide a buffer storage.

LINEAR FEEDERS MIGHT BE THE SOLUTION

Linear feeders are used to transport parts from the bowl feeder to the next stage of a production line.

Transport orientated components

Use multiple drivers in tandem

Keep bowl-fill height at a minimum, allowing easy access

Provide a buffer storage & reduce potential for jamming

Reduce noise by automatically switching off the bowl feeder (via a sensing device)

Perfect for feeding delicate components

Linear feeders can help reduce the likelihood and impact of any jamming.

Primarily they transport your orientated part to the next stage of the production line, but they also provide a buffer storage and allow bowl feeders to run at a lower bowl fill height.
