A welcome addition to DEPRAG’s list of feeding technology options, the system eacy step feed exhibits particularly gentle handling of fasteners. Vibration is only used in the vicinity of the linear feed rails. This gentle part handling and low-friction feeding guarantees that particle build-up is kept to a minimum. The high feed rate, long life-span and compact size – specifically for longer screws – provides an alternative to vibratory bowl feeders and sword feeders.
A brushless electric motor, controlled by the smart energy-efficient PFC100 controller, is used to drive the feed plates. The controller also regulates conveyor speed, supporting the gentle feeding of parts.
The complete system, comprising a storage container, material-handling technology, linear conveyor, separator, housing and controller – specially designed for longer screws – offers hassle-free, reliable operation with 24V technology, independent of house voltage and frequency.
