The sortimat Birkman feeder technology integrates multiple solutions from receiving the parts to presenting them in the right position at the assembly line. These are made-to-measure, turnkey feeder systems.
Vibratory Bowl feeders
Our bowl feeders store, convey and sort multiple parts of many shapes and sizes in diameters ranging from 100 mm to 800 mm
Rotating Drum feeders
Rotating Drum feeders are ideal for feeding small, unstable parts that can easily entangle or statically charge. Rotating Drum feeders handle parts gently occupying a very small footprint.
Step feeders separate and transport parts through a series of steps. Parts are sorted and oriented on the linear tracks. Robust, quiet and low-maintenance step feeders are ideal for long and thin parts using less space than vibratory bowl feeders.
Linear vibratory conveyors
Commonly known as linear tracks, linear vibratory conveyors transfer parts between the feeder and the production system.
Robust, rapid, and easy to use, shaft feeders ensure uninterrupted, reliable operation, and are easy to integrate. They feed parts efficiently minimizing wear and tear.
Vibratory hoppers and belt hoppers hold large quantities of parts and guarantee the automatic, uninterrupted recharging of feeding units.
Elevators are an ideal solution for moving large volumes of parts from storage hoppers with low filling heights, and help guarantee machine autonomy.
