Sidel Inc: Cap feeders
Sidel’s Aidlin Eco cap feeders combine energy savings, high speeds and ergonomics, and provide process reliability, "respect for the caps" and lower dust emissions.
Sidel cap feeders take aim at energy consumption by definitively abandoning the use of air, not only for cap propulsion but also for ejection of off-spec caps. Can be used at all production speeds even can process flat caps at more than 120,000 caps/hour. Features the Aidlin cap orientation principle: cleats linked together by an articulated chain carry the caps gently from a large storage hopper towards an adjustable speed bump, which inclines the cleats and causes poorly oriented caps to fall by simple gravity.
