Sawn Steel Billets
like these, are fed to an induction heater at 15 to 35 pieces per minute at an average noise of 85 dB(A).
Parts are dumped from a stock box into a floorbin, then elevated to an orienting conveyor to exit, end to end, via a short track.
Critical space limits required a small feeder footprint.
So a rotary cradle box dumper was fitted over the bin with fender technology to keep Billets from exiting the box until nearly up ended.
Controlled dump action reduces abuse to feeder and parts as well as limiting noise and use of floor space.
