Spring Feeder (PR/SPR Series)
Our parts feeder specialized for coil spring can disentangle and orientate any coil springs without stopping your antomation assembling line by error of spring feeding. Even 0.5 x 2mm of coil springs are possible to feed correctly by unique 3 structures and a patented technology has succeeded to automatically remove "overlapping springs" which generally had been difficult to remove in automation.
We can disentangle, separate and orientate all conditions of coil springs
The first step is named "Drop Zone". All springs coming to here is struck on a wall of this face by air blow. Its impact disentangles most of big masses of springs to small masses or single springs and they are dropped into the bottom of bowl again or go to the next step.
After Drop Zone, small masses and single springs come to the second step named "Line Zone". It is fully and pecisely custom-designed for individual spring of customers and doesn't allow any springs of incorrect dimensions to pass. Most of problematic springs are separated at this step.
The final step named "Gate Zone" is an unique patented process. Even after Line Zone, some overlapping springs which has the same diameter as single springs are reaching the outlet. An unique sensor at Gate Zone detects such overlapping springs and keeps them staying before outlet until air blow strikes them back to the bottom of bowl again.
