Description

The A18 Vibratory Bowl Screw Presenter With Hopper:

An Automatic Screw Presenter Device Engineered To Suit Your Application.

To prevent tampering, we’ve engineered our automatic screw presenter systems so that there are no mechanical adjustments. All parts of our screw presenters are machined to the specifications of your particular fastener, and dowel pinned in place. This make maintenance of our screw presenting systems 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 screw presenter systems.

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

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 misaligned screws 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.

Screw Presenter System Anatomy & Features

The A18 Series of vibratory bowl screw presenters comes complete with hardened tool steel and stainless steel escapement.

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.

  • Resistant to wear & tear damage
  • Standard polyethylene bowl coating
  • Optional hard anodize or urethane bowl coating
  • 3-Step fastener alignment verification prevents jams
  • Hardened & heat-treated durable tool steel composition
  • Less pinch points & no mechanical adjustments for enhanced safety
