What is the difference in feeder bowl tracking systems? Why would you choose one over another? Here are some of the benefits of each type of system used with our feeder systems.
Air Tracks are the gold standard in tracking systems. As the name implies, they use pressurized air (shop compressed air or electric blower) to move parts at a high speed (up to 1200 ppm.) The parts float on an air stream that is emitted through small, angled holes in the track that both lift and accelerate the parts. Air tracks are gentler on parts, since there is virtually no friction when the parts are gliding on air. They also hold parts in a tighter confinement. Air tracks also reduce noise in tracking. They work best on lightweight parts and pieces that have a good surface area so they can be lifted and moved down the track. Air tracks perform very well when you need an extended tracking system to move parts over a long distance quickly.
We produce two types of air tracks.
Horizontal In-line Tracks use vibration to move parts. Parts are oriented and confined one after the next as they move down the track. Horizontal tracks are ideal for sturdy, heavy or odd-shaped parts.
Conveyor Tracks are used to move long parts gently with or without confinement. They can accommodate a long overhang to deliver parts into the next cell. They can be geared to your specified linear inch per minute configuration. Conveyor tracks are much quieter than vibratory tracks.
Gravity Tracks are used to deliver parts down an angled track. Tracks can be angled up to 45º or more. Gravity tracks use the weight of the parts to move them. Gravity tracks are a great solution for heavy duty parts that can withstand sliding friction while moving down line and the end destination is close to the feeder bowl.
