Polyamide Bowl Feeders
As North America's leading manufacturer, VTR's bowl feeders are an ideal choice for applications that require accurate material accountability and consistent repeatability. Our polyamide bowl feeders are designed with a calmer drive unit, which ensures they operate quietly and with minimal vibration, making them suitable for use with a variety of parts.
Designed with material accountability and exact repeatability in mind.
Designed with 3D SolidWorks software and machined on a 5-Axis Trunnion CNC Mill, VTR offers machined bowl feeders equipped with a lifetime warranty. Our bowls are manufactured entirely by machines, allowing these units to be 100% repeatable. They are available in white or blue with FDA certification or black for automotive applications.Get Started
VTR's machined bowls remove variability found in hand-crafted feeder art, and come with a lifetime warranty. If the bowls fail under normal operation, VTR will replace them free of charge within days.
VTR's systems are fully designed using 3D SolidWorks software and are machined using a 5 Axis Trunnion CNC Mill. If a replacement bowl is required, our customers can simply swap the counterpart bowl by loosening a center bolt and re-installing the new bowl on dowels, without the need for a service technician.
VTR's bowls use a calmer drive unit to help parts travel smoothly through the orientation features. With a higher frequency drive unit, there is no aggressive vibration transfer. Our bowls also have a smaller footprint compared to traditional hand-fabricated bowls.
PROCESS INTRICATE PARTS
Spring Detangler Available
Our machined bowls can have an integrated Spring Detangler that is specifically designed to feed springs more effectively. Spring feeder systems often struggle with tangling or jamming. VTR’s Spring Detanglers solve these issues by separating the springs and reintroducing them into the system without a large recirculation system. This helps ensure that the springs are untangled consistently, without causing jams or disruptions to the overall cycle time. The Spring Detangler is integrated into the bowl feeder itself, allowing for seamless integration into the overall system without any additional setup or maintenance. This feature can help improve the efficiency and reliability of the feeder system and ensures that springs travel into the storage track untangled and ready for processing. Our systems come with an ejection system for difficult springs.
Hoppers, Colours & Controls
Multiple Styles Available
VTR’s bowls have been designed to be flexible and can be integrated with a variety of different hopper types and accumulation devices. This allows us to tailor the feeder system to our customers’ specific needs and requirements. The different hopper types that can be used with VTR’s bowls include elevator hoppers, stepper hoppers, live bottom systems, and vibratory hoppers. Each of these hoppers has its own unique features and benefits, and selecting the appropriate hopper will depend on the specific application and the parts being fed.
In terms of accumulation devices, VTR’s bowls can be integrated with various types such as vibratory, pneumatic or conveyor based. These devices are used to collect and store parts that are fed from the bowl before they are released into the next stage of the manufacturing process. The accumulation device chosen will depend on the specific application, the parts being fed, and the desired level of automation.
VTR’s bowls are also available in different colors including black for the automotive, while white or blue, for consumer, medical or pharmaceutical. In addition, the bowls can be fitted with a control panel for a turn-key solution, which is especially useful for multilane applications and more intricate part handling. This makes it easy to quickly integrate your new system into the facility and start using it immediately.
