Parts Feeders

We custom design bowl feeders to your product to allow the part to flow into your printing production line smoothly and efficiently.  Bowl feeders as well as other parts-handling technologies have applications in both industrial inkjet as well as pad-printing solutions.  Indeed, automated parts handling such as bowl feeders are particularly cost-effective for the long production cycles typical of pad-printing solutions to product-marking, as in such cases, parts-handling is frequently the production bottleneck.

Some applications include:

  • Bottle caps
  • Syringes
  • Erasers
  • Electric components
  • Plastic parts
  • Any parts that can be bowl fed

Linear Shuttle

Linear Shuttle Image

The linear shuttle comes standard with 500mm of travel length. This shuttle is programmable for a single part fixture, with an adjustable stop position between each pad station using the machines touch screen operator controls. Separate sequence changes are quick to program if necessary.

This type of shuttle is mainly used in four or five color pad machine applications with or without independent pad descents. This shuttle also works well along with robotic preload or unload applications.    

  • Electrically operated by a brushless servo motor
  • Orthogonal table with XY registration and +/-5 degree rotation, allowing the placement of a part holder
  • Configurable for automated product loading and/or unload stations
