   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Feeder Type       
   Your choices are...         
   Centrifugal Rotary Feeder       Centrifugal feeders use a bowl that spins and forces parts to the outside of the bowl. At the outside edge of the bowl, the parts are channeled into receivers when the parts are in the right orientation. From the receiver, they go onto a track that moves the parts to the next stage of production. Centrifugal feeders are usually faster and less noisy than vibratory feeders. They also tend to mar parts less than other types of feeders. 
   Inside Feature Feeder       An inside feature of the part is used to guide the part into the process. 
   Pneumatic       The part is fed by means of a pneumatic piston, operated by hydraulic (liquid) pressure along tubes. 
   Sword Feeder       A slotted blade is used to capture and orientate the part. 
   Vibratory Bowl Feeder       The vibratory bowl feeder is the most common parts feeder. The bowl has a helical track which climbs the inside wall of the bowl. Parts are dumped into the bowl that vibrates and turns. As the parts climb the track they encounter obstacles that orient the parts in a certain way. 
   Other       Other unlisted or proprietary feeder type.

Features
   Bowl Configuration:       
   Your choices are...         
   Cascade Bowl       Also known as an inside track bowl.  Cascade bowls are primarily used for feeding easily oriented parts like screws and dowels.  They are often quieter and less costly than outside-track designs. 
   Outside-track Bowl       Outside-track bowls are used when more intricate tooling is required for proper part orientation, for higher feed rates, or for multiple lines of feed.  The outside track is pitched downward allowing parts to separate and be more easily oriented. 
   Other       Other unlisted or proprietary bowl configuration. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Programmable?       Programmable parts feeders are more flexible than traditional parts feeders. They can be programmed to change the way they isolate or orient parts. Programmable feeders have been built or proposed in several different configurations. These range from programming the frequency of vibrations in a traditional type of feeder to sensor driven actuators that reorient parts. Robotic feeders that use sensors and manipulators to orient parts have also been explored and used. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Sterilizable?       The bowl of the feeder is sterilizable for use in applications such as medical, pharmaceutical, or food processing. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Couples to a Machine Tool?       The unit feeds a machine tool such as a screwdriver or nutrunner. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Parts Counter?       The feeder can also count the parts as they exit the feeder. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
