Coperion K-Tron has announced a completely new K3 line of vibratory feeders for dry bulk solids. This new innovative feeder have a lot of design features with unique, patent-pending drive system combined with an advanced control package.
K3 vibratory feeder is able to achieve accuracies averaging 35% better over traditional vibratory technologies. It offers gentle handling of the bulk material, higher accuracy and faster product changeover, resulting in less product waste, less downtime and better end product quality as well as improved sustainability. Moreover, this feeder is able to do this thanks to a completely new shock absorber design.
This feeder uses a unique flexible pendulum technology which provides shock absorption only parallel to the desired direction of motion, eliminating rotational movement. This parallel motion ensures an even material flow of the product along the entire length of the tray.
Besides that, the power consumption can be as low as 20 Watts for feed rates as high as 6,000 kg/h, thus making it ideal for improved production sustainability and minimal heat dissipation. Vibratory feeders are ideal for the gentle handling of a wide variety of materials, including friable products, abrasive products, glass fibers and etc.
