Abstract

This article describes a method of designing a circular or straight line vibratory parts feeder in which pins will be delivered in a single line without stacking. Fig. 1 shows the output end of a feeder designed to feed pins as shown. Normal practice is to construct adjacent tracks or grooves in which more than one pin can travel as shown in Fig. 2. By spacing the track 2 apart and cutting away the track material to form openings 4, a trestle 2 is formed, as shown in Figs. 1 and 3. This trestle is designed to allow only one pin to proceed as there is no support to allow stacking. Fig. 3 shows pin 6 proceeding through the trestle sections while pins 5 fall off and are recycled.

Horizontal Pin Feed Mechanism

      This article describes a method of designing a circular
or straight line vibratory parts feeder in which pins will be
delivered in a single line without stacking.  Fig. 1 shows the output
end of a feeder designed to feed pins as shown. Normal practice is to
construct adjacent tracks or grooves in which more than one pin can
travel as shown in Fig. 2. By spacing the track 2 apart and cutting
away the track material to form openings 4, a trestle 2 is formed, as
shown in Figs. 1 and 3.  This trestle is designed to allow only one
pin to proceed as there is no support to allow stacking. Fig. 3 shows
pin 6 proceeding through the trestle sections while pins 5 fall off
and are recycled.
