Dual Lane Orienting Conveyor.
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.
12″ to 20″ tubes are hand stacked, bundle loaded or with modifications to the hopper loaded from a conveyor from a previous operation. This type of feeder is very suitable for non-mar applications when parts are finished or in a pre-heat treated state. Noise levels are very low due to zero recirculation of parts.
