The V200 Hygienic Design Vibratory Feeder (photo) is suitable for gentle handling of bulk solid materials, including fragile and problematic materials, such as finished friable food products and ingredients and glass fibers. The vibratory feeder is also suitable for abrasive materials, such as course powders and granules, as well as sensitive products like uncoated tablets. The unit has new design features, including an improved high-accuracy and patent-pending drive technology. The new K3 line of vibratory feeders features a modular design, including several quick-change tray options for faster product changeover. The new K3 vibratory feeders will be available in a standard design and a hygienic, easy-to-clean design, as well as a design suitable for pharmaceutical applications. — Coperion K-Tron, Inc., Salina, Kan.
