Problem: The customer was in need of a feeder system for delicate ceramic parts. The system had to move the parts without scratching or damaging them.
Solution: Fortville designed a bulk hopper and vibratory feed system all overlaid with a Surlyn coating. A mushroom deflector was utilized to aid in the elevation drop out of the hopper which helped keep the part from breaking. The non-abrasive surface allowed the ceramic parts to be sorted and placed in an online track without damage due to friction against the hopper or bowl.
