Our Products and Capabilities

At VFI, we provide standard as well as custom solutions for automotive manufacturing. Customers can choose from standard products or a custom combination to suit their needs. Some of our offerings include:

  • Bowl Feeders:
    • Our cascade bowl feeders are designed with outward spiraling tracks that can efficiently move and orient small components likes screws, bolts, and dowels.
    • For larger components, we recommend outside track bowl feeders. These allow for high feed rates and precise part orientation. They can also be designed with multiple feed lines.

  • Supply Hoppers:
    • We provide standard and straight front supply hoppers. Each type provides specific advantages to an application.

    • Standard supply hoppers are designed with paddle switch sensors, and adjustable feed rates and vibration amplitudes. They are extremely suitable for feeding of bulk parts.
    • Our straight front supply hoppers consist of a wider tray opening, which allows for controlled feeding of parts with greater lengths and widths.

  • Drive Units:
    • For automotive applications, we usually recommend the use of pneumatic drive units.
    • Our high inertia units are capable of supporting 5 to 18-inch-diameter cascade bowls and 6 to 12-inch core-diameter outside-track bowls.

    All our products can be customized to meet your specific application requirements. Our products adhere to the regulations laid down by Canadian Standards Association (CSA) and Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG).
