Custom Flex Feeders from Bellco Feeders

Bellco Feeders' flexible feeding solutions supply parts to an industrial vision-guided robot. With its backlit tray and three-axis vibration technology, our flex feeder provides an enhanced user experience. This technology efficiently moves components in various directions across the surface, ensuring their random scattering.

When the vision system notifies the flex feeder that there are not enough pickable parts on the surface, the hopper and flex feeder will turn on, gently shaking the components again to reorganize them.

We can configure bulk part hoppers that provide a continuous flow of material to the vibrating tray and minimize operator interaction.

Some benefits of our flexible feeding system are:
  • Quiet and gentle operation
  • Programmable vibration sequences with 3-axis vibrating technology to move parts in all directions 
  • Highly adaptable and easily customized - possible to supply a complete range of parts
  • Suitable for parts that have unique geometries
  • Ideal for restoration projects
  • With a compact design that optimizes the operator’s time and floor space
  • Optional backlit pick area to pair with vision guided robotic applications

It is important to remember that flexible part feeders are not suitable for every automation system. Bellco Feeders will work with you to identify and implement the right part feeding system for your specific requirements.

Features and Benefits

Flex Feed Controllers
All our flex feeders are equipped with digital variable frequency intelligent controllers, which are simple to operate and maintain. They operate by turning on and off to randomly distribute parts.
Illuminated Vibrating Tray
Our backlit vibrating tray effectively illuminates the parts to make them easily visible for an industrial vision system to locate and pick them.
Automatic Change Over
Our vibrating table can be programmed to run many different sequences. When you are ready to change to a new part, the changeover process is as simple as choosing a sequence on the HMI.
High Versatility
Our flex feeding systems are highly versatile and can feed almost every type of part, even the most complex geometries.

Designed for Simple Robotic Integration

Our flex feeders integrate easily with your vision-guided, pick-and-place robot applications. The parts can then be placed into the automation equipment directly. You can use our solutions with multiple types of robots, including a vision guided 6-axis or SCARA robot.
