A customer that manufactures metal tweezers found that, as the items came off the production line, they were frequently interlocked with each other. In order to put them into boxes for delivery, they had to be separated into single tweezers. This step, if done manually, is time-consuming, inefficient and expensive.
To automate the process, the customer purchased a MARTIN® NTK® Pneumatic Linear Vibrator with adjustable amplitude and installed it on the conveyor. The vibrator produced a high-amplitude, low-frequency vibration that workers could adjust as needed, automating the process of separating the tweezers.
