From the accumulating hopper the cap gets onto the vertical conveyor belt. The belt moves and has “shelves” evenly distributed along the whole length. Since “the shelf” height of the conveyor belt is 2 times less than the cap height, when reaching the vertical region the caps positioned by their bases to the conveyor belt fall down into the hopper under the gravitation force. As a result, only those caps reach the distributing tray, which are positioned with their bases to the conveyor belt. From the distributing tray the caps get into the cap pipe and when it is overfilled, they overflow back to the accumulating hopper. At the same time, when the cap pipe is filled, the cap feeding stops. And when it gets empty – resumes, which allows saving on the electric power.
- Possibility to adapt the positioner for different cap types through replaceable sets
- Floor-mounted hopper for easy visual control of caps availability
- Automatic pausing when the cap consumption stops
