Vibratory bowl feeding

Custom-engineered for your production process.

Vibratory bowl feeders designed for automated fastening manufacturing applications...

Carlson automatic screw feeder bowls automate the screw driving and assembly process by providing a steady stream of screws to the screw driving unit using a pressurized stream of air flow, enabling extremely short cycle times and automated, hands-off automatic run times.

When combined with an automatic hopper feeder, our screw feeder systems can potentially run for hours unsupervised with confidence and precision. For applications in medical device manufacturing industries, or other industries requiring cleanroom environments for assembly automation, we also offer a sound and dust-proofing enclosure for our blow feed automatic screw feeder machines.

What makes our screw feeder devices so unique is the level of attention to detail that goes into the prevention of fastener jams. Jams along the track and in the screw escapement are one of the leading causes of frustration for automation engineers and assembly line builders when implementing screw feeders or presenters, so we have managed to build a fool-proof series of mechanisms, which we call the 3-step fastener alignment verification process, directly into the track. It is virtually impossible for a screw to become jammed along the track of a Carlson feeder, as there are too many precautions in place to allow for this to occur!

Carlson screw feeders are engineered to work for hours without errors or fastener jams.

Error Proof Screw Feeders - Sorting Jet

Step 1: Sorting Air Jet

The first step in our 3-step fastener verification is our Non-Adjustable Sorting Air jet – a highly pressurized stream of air that ejects misaligned fasteners from the track - our first line of defense.

Error Proof Screw Feeders - Qualifying Track

Step 2: Qualifying Track Cover:​​

The second step is a Non-Adjustable Bowl Track Qualifying Cover, which prevents misaligned fasteners from passing underneath its clearance and moving down the escapement track in the first place.

Error Proof Screw Feeders - Optic Sensor

Step 3: Optic Sensor​

When the optic sensor notices that the escapement is full, the bowl will cease vibrations, stopping the flow of fasteners to the escapement. This prevents back pressure in the bowl, stopping jams before they occur.
