Description

The A10 Vibratory Bowl Automatic Screwfeeder With Hopper:

An Automatic Screw Feeder System Engineered To Suit Your Application.

To prevent tampering, we’ve engineered our automatic screwfeeder bowl tooling so that there are no mechanical adjustments. All parts are machined to the specifications of your particular fastener, and dowel pinned in place. This make maintenance of our vibratory screw feeders easy: the escapement can be taken apart for cleaning, and it will go back together precisely as originally manufactured.

Our track level sensor is custom made for the Carlson escapement, ensuring superior accuracy & fastener compatibility. This sensor mounts to the escapement track and requires no positional adjustment, like the rest of our tooling. The sensor’s sensitivity is preset from the factory, and in most cases does not require adjustment.

To prevent fastener jams:

We have engineered a 3 Step Fastener Alignment Verification into each of our automated screwfeeders & screw presenters.

One of the most frustrating challenges caused by modern vibratory feeder bowls is the frequency of fastener jams. To solve this, we have engineered a unique 3-step fastener alignment verification process into our automatic screw feeder machines.

1.

First Step:

Non-Adjustable Sorting Air Jet

The first step in our 3-step fastener verification is our Non-Adjustable Sorting Air jet – a highly pressurized stream of air that ejects misaligned fasteners from the track. This is our first line of defense in the prevention of feeding misaligned fasteners into the automated screw feeder machine’s blow-feed tube, or from reaching the screw presenter pickup area.

2.

Second Step:

Non-Adjustable Qualifying Track Cover:​​

The second step is a Non-Adjustable Bowl Track Qualifying Cover, which prevents misaligned fasteners from entering the escapement. The simple construction of this feature, coupled with there being no need for adjustment, makes it a powerful addition.

3.

Third Step:

Escapement-Level U-Bracket Optic Sensor​

The third step is our U-Bracket Optic Sensor – a laser-accurate sensor which controls the escapement track level, effectively preventing fasteners from being vibrated towards an already-fully-loaded track. When the escapement is full, the bowl will cease vibrations, stopping the flow of fasteners to the escapement. This prevents back pressure in the bowl.

Screwfeeder Anatomy & Features​

The A10 Series of vibratory bowl screwfeeders comes complete with hardened tool steel and stainless steel escapement tracks and track cover.

Optic controls switch the bowl vibration on and off to prevent excessive wear and over-pressurization of escapement and tooling areas as seen on other manufacturer’s systems.

The unique Carlson Fastener Hopper design sits snugly above the vibratory bowl, unlike competing manufacturer models that site adjacent to the device. This causes less footprint, leaving more valuable floor or table space available.
