The feeding system eacy step feed exhibits particularly gentle handling of feed material. Vibration is only used in the vicinity of the linear feed rails.
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.
This gentle part handling and low-friction feeding guarantee that particle build-up is kept to an absolute minimum. However, there is also the option of adding vacuum suction equipment to boost technical cleanliness at
specific interface points. The DEPRAG CleanFeed concept is also available for each processing step of the eacy step feed system – from component handling and feeding to fastening – prevent, reduce, and remove abrasion.
The step feeder can also be optionally combined with DEPRAG storage systems. They are the ideal complement for optimal processing, ensuring a constant fill volume and extended re-load intervals. Eacy step feed is, of
course, also compatible with DEPRAG’s other automation components, such as the DEPRAG Feed Module DFM, the DEPRAG screwdriving function modules, and DCOS, the DEPRAG Controller System.
The high feed rate, long life-span, and compact size – specifically for more extended feed parts – provides an alternative to vibratory spiral feeders and sword feeders.
