Dual Lane Orienting Conveyor

Bi-directional dual belt conveyorModel 1500 Dual Lane Orienting Conveyors are designed for gentle/non-mar orienting and non-orienting parts feeding. This feeder is easily adjusted for various part size ranges. Part shapes may be disc, ring, cylindrical, shaft type, solid or tubular. Parts are loaded from tote pans, bulk floor metering hoppers or by conveyors from a previous operation. These conveyors may be used to feed grinders, selective induction hardeners, thread rollers, forging and extrusion presses, assembly machines and many other parts feeding applications.

Steel sleeves are accepted from customer’s manually loaded totes at random onto a Bi-Directional Conveyor. Tubes merge from the in-feed (load) lane onto the orienting lane conveyor and discharge in a continuous, end-to-end stream to the work rest of a Centerless Grinder.

Project Details
Feeds steel tubes from customer’s bins at random onto a bi-directional feed conveyor. Tubes merge from the load lane onto the orienting land conveyor in an end-to-end stream. Tubes are then transfered one at a time to a customer-supplied input chute 50″ from the floor. The feed rate is 20-30 parts/minute.


Case Studies

SO17394 – Model 1500 Bi-Directional Orienting Conveyor
Accepts frozen food packets at random from a bulk feed conveyor. Packets merge from the in-feed lane onto the orienting lane. The packets are oriented in a continuous end-to-end stream.

SO17605 – Model 1500 Bi-Directional Orienting Conveyor w/3,000# Vibratory Metering Hopper, TC-38-84-3,000# Hydraulic Tub Dumper & GLH-3.5-4 Exit Conveyor
Feeds parts from a random loaded floor mounted hopper. The parts are then metered from a vibratory hopper on demand and spilled at random onto a bi-directional feed conveyor. The parts merge from the infeed conveyor lane onto the orienting conveyor lane and exit in a continuous end-to-end stream to an automatic, air operated slug pusher device. The pusher device loads one slug at a time into an air-operated rotary actuator equipped with a pneumatic gripper. The rotary actuator presents the slug with axis vertical with the bottom of the slug.

SO17609 – Model 1500 Bi-Directional Orienting Conveyor w/0600 Elevating Bulk Hopper Feeder
Feeds from a manually loaded, floor mounted bi-directional conveyor. Steel strikers are manually dumped from a basket (30” x 18” wide x 6” deep) onto a bi-directional orienting conveyor. Strikers merge from the in-feed conveyor lane onto the orienting conveyor lane and exit in a continuous, end-to-end stream on to a 45-degree discharge chute. Customer has mounted an eddy current tester to the end of our chute.

SO17616 – Model 1500 Bi-Directional Orienting Conveyor w/GLH-3.5-4 Exit Conveyor
Feeds from a random loaded floor mounted hopper. The parts are metered from a customer supplied elevator on demand and spilled randomly onto a bi-directional feed conveyor. The parts merge from the infeed conveyor portion onto the orienting conveyor lane and exit in a continuous stream to an automatic air operated economy style transfer device. Then the parts are loaded in a diameter-to-diameter stream into an existing load chute.

SO17801 – Model 1500 w/Vibratory Metering Hopper
Feeds parts from a drop bottom tub stand. The parts are then be spilled randomly onto a bidirectional feed conveyor. The parts merge from the infeed conveyor portion onto the discharge conveyor. The parts then escape one at a time onto a customer supplied pick-n-place unit.

SO17816-17817 – Model 1500 w/Bulk Loading System
Feeds constant velocity inner and outer race walls from a random loaded bulk feeding system. Bulk feeding system accepts blanks from an existing parts washer and spills them randomly onto the bi-directional orienting conveyor. Blanks merge from the in-feed (load) lane onto the orienting lane. Once oriented in a non-face-select, end-to-end stream, the blanks enter the Discharge Conveyor equipped with an air-operated escapement device. The parts are escaped one at a time into dual two pick-up stations. Once both pick-up stations have a part, the conveyor shuts off for vision controlled robotic pick-up and load into coining press.

SO18044 – Model 1500 Bi-Directional Orienting Conveyor
Accepts steel tubes from customer’s conveyor at random onto a bi-directional feed conveyor. Tubes merge from the in-feed (load) lane onto the orienting lane conveyor and discharge in a continuous, end-to-end stream.

SO18108 – Model 1500 Bi-Directional Orienting Conveyor
Accepts steel sleeves from customer’s manually loaded totes at random onto a bi-directional conveyor. Tubes merge from the in-feed (load) lane onto the orienting lane conveyor and are discharged in a continuous, end-to-end stream to the workrest of a centerless grinder.
