Step Feeders Product Specification

Step Feeders are ideal for sorting and feeding cylindrical and symmetrical parts — like pipettes, tubes, nails, screws, rings, washers, bushings, and caps.

parts oriented and sorted

Each step captures parts that would fit on the step in an ideal pre-oriented position, and then carried to the next stage up. The pneumatic actuator can be adjusted to different speeds, and the pressure controller can be adjusted to the speed at the end of the stroke to decelerate the parts allowing a soft drop into the orienting track.

Our models allow for different step. Thicknesses range from 6 to 50 mm to capture a wide range of parts from small needles to large pipes of up to 80 mm in diameter.
