What are the Advantages of Puck Feeder Systems

Many who hear the term puck feeder system do not know what that is. The two most common feeding systems are vibratory and centrifugal, but that does not mean that puck systems are weak or inadequate. Puck systems allow us to deliver solutions to a wide range of manufacturing needs. Puck feeders are similar to centrifugal feeders, and they can operate with continuous motion. They have been designed to move parts that cannot stand up during tradition orientation and feeding processes. Puck feeds are one of the best options for controlling the motion of parts within the feeder. There are many advantages to using puck feeder systems, which include: Systems are built with a round carrier that stabilizes parts that move through various stations within the automated system. Pucker systems can hold thin and long pieces vertically. These devices can operate at high speeds. They can also work inside complex systems. Parts do not leave the puck until they are fully assembled. On average a puck feeder can move up to 120 pieces per minute. Systems are known to work much faster than that when need be. It might be hard to tell if a pucker system is right for your business and application, so give us a call to have an in-depth conversation. Contact us to learn more about automated assembly systems.
