About The Project

Bellco designed and manufactured three custom vibratory feeder bowls and bulk parts hopper to feed an automated assembly machine that produces insect repellant products. The three products were different sizes and geometries and all needed to be fed at the same rate. 


  • child proof caps
  • inspect repellant container
  • fabric wick

Bellco Feeders worked with the automating engineers at the OEM to design the systems within the footprint allotted and with the

Each vibratory feeder bowl system included:

  • custom welded and painted steel legs
  • bulk parts hoppers 
  • linear feeding tracks
  • custom parts escapements 



This was a fun project for our team. We were able to work with the engineering team at the OEM and design custom parts escapements that would feed their pick-and-place applications in their automated machine.

Our team was also able to design all three systems to operate at the same rate which helped the machines overall efficiency. 

Our customer was able to enjoy our quick turn-around and was able to integrate this system into their automated machine within 12 weeks of placing the order with Bellco.
