Now you can have: Bulk loading of individual parts, automatic orientation, and a dependable interface to your assembly or process machinery. A wider range of part sizes can be fed with a step feeder versus other feeders such as bowl feeders. These capabilities have never before been available in such a compact, quiet, and reliable feeder.
Quiet Operation Our step feeders are precision made and use permanently lubricated bearings which leads to very quiet operation and no step binding.
Feed a Multitude of Part Sizes Our step feeders feed a range of part sizes with little or no setup. CAE’s adjustable step option allows a larger size range than ever before possible.
More Reliable, Longer Lasting, and Quiet Operation All moving parts ride on precision sealed bearings. This produces a piece of equipment that lasts longer and is more reliable, runs quiet, and requires less power to operate.
Operating Controls Included The standard package includes a stand-alone control panel, which may be used to cycle and monitor the operating status of the unit. The control panel also provides an interface to the process machinery where the parts are delivered.
Cycle Time That Matches Your Production Requirements The step feeder utilizes a variable frequency drive to power the elevating steps. The transfer rate can be tuned to match your production requirements.
Low Operating and Maintenance Costs The entire unit is developed around the time-proven cam principle. This basic design is easy to set up and maintain and does not require repetitive tuning or costly repair components.
Lower Labor Costs Utilizing a step feeder to bulk load components reduces labor requirements to feed parts. The labor resources are then available for other duties. This increased efficiency translates into real dollars saved.
CAE has created a patent pending option available on all of our step feeders that allows a wider range of part sizes to be fed by one feeder. Now one feeder can deliver small to large diameter parts to your equipment giving you even more flexibility than ever before possible.
