This vibratory feeder is ideal for feeding fragile materials

The new line of K3 vibratory feeders (photo) features a unique, patent-pending drive system combined with an advanced control package, resulting in gentler product handling, higher accuracy and quicker product changeover with no residual material. The key to the K3 vibratory feeder achieving high accuracy is the ability to deliver a continuous, even product discharge with minimal pulsations. Conventional vibratory feeders use rubber or spring shock absorbers, which allow movement of the drive in all directions, resulting in rotational motion of the tray. The unique flexible pendulum technology of the K3 vibratory feeder controls the tray movement and eliminates wasteful motion. This resulting parallel motion ensures an even material flow of the product along the entire length of the vibratory feeder tray. Standard and hygienic designs are available. — Coperion K-Tron, Salina, Kan.
