Product Announcement from Arthur G. Russell
High Performance Vibratory and Rotary Feeders
VibroBlock® High Performance Vibratory Feeders are equipped with automatic servo controls,adjustable vibration angle and feed rates up to 150 feet per minute. Bowl diameters vary from 6 to 34 inch diameter, in cast aluminum (CNC machined) stainless steel and composite materials. Special tooling is provided by our skilled technicians, many with 30 years experience. Linear vibratory tracks can be constructed in any length, with feed rates up to 40 feet per minute. High performance rotary feeders with feed rates up to 1800 parts per minute.
Automation Innovator Since 1945
Since its founding in 1945, Arthur G. Russell has been an innovator in the field of automatic assembly equipment. At that time the lack of adequate parts feeders and reliable automation components limited assembly speeds and equipment reliability.
In response, AGR developed a line of vibratory feeders based on the modular Vibroblock® that was state of the art both electrically and mechanically. These engineered feeders could deliver parts at much higher rates, which raised the bar for automatic assembly systems.
Feeder performance was further enhanced with AGR's introduction of closed loop vibratory control and variable frequency operation. Other AGR innovations included modular mechanical devices including cam driven pick and place units, grippers, part escapements and rotary and linear actuators.
Appropriate application of these technologies led to literally thousands of successful automation projects.
Our ability to feed and handle parts at high speeds led to specialization in the ultra high volume medical device and consumer products industries where for over 40 years we have been designing, building, installing, and supporting world class assembly, test, inspection, and packaging systems.
Continued application of more sophisticated controls, servo systems, sensors, and inspection equipment have allowed our systems to keep up with increasing customer demands for higher speeds, zero defects, and unprecedented reliability. AGR is committed to constantly being aware of the latest technologies, knowledgeable regarding their proper use, and creative in ways to apply them to maintain our leadership position in the ever evolving automation market.
