A large manufacturer of metal shelving was experiencing a parts flow problem on a sheet metal press. The parts being stamped were plugging the die which caused frequent quality problems and “die” damage.
A temporary solution was to have a worker stand on the other side of the press and manually pull hung-up parts with a hook – a tedious, costly, and potentially dangerous solution.
MARTIN® Vibration Systems designed a vibrating chute using two MARTIN® CD™ Series 18-70 Electric Vibrators. Parts now flow without trouble. Since using our vibrators, the manufacturer has been able to increase production and move their workers to a much more needed and productive role.
