Case Studies

SO14431 – Model 1700-220 Automatic Bar Feeder
Feeds from a manually stacked floor mounted magazine. Hot rolled steel bars are escaped rolling from the magazine one at a time to the customer’s conveyor.

SO17580 – Model 2224 Elevating Hopper Feeder
Feeds steel billets from a manually loaded, floor mounted hopper. The billets are elevated from the hopper via a cleated belt, carried over the top of the elevator and accumulated in a continuous, diameter-to-diameter stream. An air-operated escapement discharges one billet at a time into ABP induction air-operated pusher feeding an induction heater.

SO17836-17837 – Model 2250 Elevating Hopper Feeder w/O6W-02-11 Discharge Conveyor
Feeds sheared steel billets from a manually loaded, floor mounted hopper. The billets are elevated from the hopper via a cleated belt and carried over the top of the elevator and deposited onto a rear mounted, accumulation ramp in a continuous, diameter-to-diameter stream. An air-operated escapement device loads one part at a time onto discharge conveyor equipped with an air-operated pusher device to qualify billet length entering channel furnace heater.

SO18083 – Model 2240 Elevating Hopper Feeder
Feeds steel tubes from a manually loaded, floor mounted hopper. The tubes are elevated from the hopper via a cleated belt, carried over the top of the elevator and deposited onto a rear mounted, accumulation ramp in a continuous, diameter-to-diameter stream. An air-operated escapement device loads one part at a time onto rear mounted, v-nest for customer’s robot pick-off.
