- Check the Spring Pack : A spring pack is situated within every vibratory bowl feeder to support the weight and functionality of the bowl and track. The spring pack consists of multiple springs of varying thicknesses. The different springs provide the spring pack with the exact capacity to handle the total weight and movements. This capacity is provided by your manufacturer. If the load placed on the bowl exceeds this limit, it could cause the springs to break and the equipment to fail.
- Check the Functioning of the Coil : The coil in the vibratory feeder could also cause problems. Generally, the distance between the turns of the coil could increase causing gaps, reduced functionality, and excessive heat. Problems with coils are often associated with lack of strength. This is a common misconception. However, the functioning of a coil as well as the gaps in the coil can be checked to ensure that the coil is in proper working condition.
- Monitor the Output : Make sure that the voltage and frequency output expected from the machine, and the controller used to provide the output match perfectly. Find out if your machine requires an AC or DC output, and buy a controller accordingly.
- Choose the Right Input : In continuation of the above point, the input of the machine should be carefully chosen and monitored. If a machine requires a 240 Voltage input, it will not function well with a lower or higher input. Initially, the performance will be erratic and eventually, the system will overheat and breakdown.
The above-mentioned steps can be incorporated to ensure that the vibratory feeder system works without a hitch. However, if you come across any problems you can’t solve, or have any trepidation regarding any process or part functioning, you must contact your supplier or maintenance service provider. Getting a seasoned professional on board will help you in resolving small issues, which if left unchecked, could lead to bigger problems in the future.
