Step Feeder System Anatomy & Features
About the S3.5 Screw Step Feeder Enclosed With Hopper's design, features, and applications.
The S3.5 Series of step feeder designs come complete with hardened tool steel and stainless steel escapement. Optic controls switch the electric step elevator on and off to prevent excessive wear and over-pressurization of escapement and tooling areas as seen on other manufacturer’s systems.
Featuring an electrically motorized screw elevator assembly that lifts fasteners from the tray into the track, Carlson Engineering step feeders are a more silent option for feeding fasteners. The low vibration also helps to reduce the uneven coating distribution of fasteners coated with loctite or other substrates that are sometimes seen in vibratory bowl feeding.
