Magnetic Core Feeding and Cleaning Apparatus

This apparatus provides magnetic cores to test equipment and can be substituted for the conventional vibratory feeding bowl used with core testing equipment. The apparatus has a relatively high feeding rate.

Multibladed wheel 20 is suitably pivoted and driven by apparatus not shown. Each blade of wheel 20 includes a slot 22 to accommodate magnetic cores 24. At the center of wheel 20, mounted externally, is a slotted pickup station. A blade is aligned with the pickup station at the 10 o'clock position as each blade rotates past such station. The blade transfers the cores to a standard probe pickup station 28 shown in the lower drawing. The blade rotates within chamber
30. This includes a screened floor 32 suitably fastened to its interior. Air jet apparatus 34 is directed toward and cleans a slot 22 of each blade as it rotates.

Cores 24 are loaded into cage 32. Wheel 20 is driven to rotate in a clockwise direction. As each blade passes through chamber 30, magnetic cores 24 are picked up and held in the grooved portion 22 as shown in section B-B. When the blade reaches the 10 o'clock position, cores 24 are fed by gravity into passage 26 and delivered to pickup probe 28. The latter delivers cores 24 to testing apparatus not shown. The revolving blade continues and is cleaned by air jet apparatus 34 which is activated by suitable apparatus not shown. Any dirt on the blade falls through the screened area and collects at the...
