Q&A Frequently Asked Questions

Q.What are differences between the bawl feeder and the automatic nesting machine?

A.

Bawl feeder:

  1. The quantity of handled parts is not so large.
  2. In most cases, the attachments in the bawl and the feeding devices are dedicatedly designed for specific parts, so it is very difficult or impossible to replace them for different parts. Even if possible, it would require a long setup time.
  3. It is very difficult to take preventive measures against jams and other problems occurring due to deformed or mixed parts.
  4. In such a case as one automatic assembly machine uses several part feeders, just one trouble gives progressive decrease to the whole production.
  5. Additional attachments, devices or mechanisms are required to convey the parts from the supply chute to the next process.

Automatic nesting machine:

  1. The quantity of handled parts is large (capacity: 10,000 - 100,000 pieces/hour).
  2. Practically any type of parts is acceptable by simply changing pallets.
  3. No problem occurs even if deformed parts or foreign matters are mixed.
  4. The machine is never down.
  5. Since the parts are aligned on a pallet at a specified pitch, pallet-by-pallet assembly work can be carried out in the next process.
