Hoppmann Corp.: Feeder
Designed for integration with vision-guided robots, the FW-4500 feeder from Hoppmann (Chantilly, VA) is suitable for pack-aging applications ranging from tiny parts to 1-lb castings.
Parts are allowed to slide off the tooling ring and gently come to rest on a flat picking area with adjust-able gaps between them. Then parts can be selected by an integrated vision-guided robotic arm that picks up and transports the desired piece.
