Centrifugal Feeders

The Aylesbury Automation Centrifeed is a centrifugal parts feeder, specially engineered for high speed feeding requirements.

Delivery speeds of the Centrifeed can be varied from a few, to thousands of parts per minute, depending upon the specific characteristics of each part and the individual requirements for each application.

Our machines are also available with automatic loading from bulk storage to ensure uninterrupted high speed delivery of product.

Centrifeeds operate on an economical low maintenance mechanical principle.

The rotor is driven through an electronic control, which provides infinitely variable speed to suit each application.

Centripetal force drives the components around the outer edge of the rotor, where precision-engineered tooling picks off the parts and orientates them to the delivery track.

Track shapes and designs, and the escapement and detecting devices can be custom engineered to ensure a smooth, controlled delivery of parts. It is also possible to engineer multiple delivery tracks from the Centrifeed to feed more than one machine.

Orientation of some parts can be achieved with vision systems eliminating complex tooling.

A range of diameters provide capacities to accommodate differing component shapes and sizes. All models can be supplied with either clockwise or counter clockwise rotation and are also available without tooling.

Stands can be supplied if desired, to match track discharge dimensions to suit customers requirements. A noise reduction and safety interlocked cover is fitted as standard.
