A consumer goods manufacturer customer was assembling products that required the placement of a button cell battery into the product with a specific orientation in order for the product to be operable. The customer also needed the process to be highly efficient so that they could move products quickly and maximize profits.
They purchased and started using a bowl feeder equipped with a MARTIN® Series NTS™ Pneumatic Linear Vibrator and insulated by blade springs. The bowl feeder was designed to move with enough precision to sort and correctly position the button cell batteries. As a result the process of placing the batteries into the product was automated, yielding a higher throughput without compromising accuracy.
