2) Accuracy – Due to the inherent design of the GeoMate vibratory feeder the final batch accuracy will be much greater than that of a screw. As seen during our demonstration the output is incredibly consistent whether feeding at the fast speed or the dribble speed. This creates a very consistent amount of product in “free fall” time and time again, which is compensated for with the control’s preact function. This fact, Instant Off, without Plopping, provides optimal batch accuracies.
3) Investment – The short-term investment of the Geomate vibratory feeder is very similar to a comparable screw feeder, while the long-term investment is much less, as there are literally no wear parts on the feeder! Screw feeders require replacement parts period. Feed screws, sprockets, seals, motor brushes and bearing assemblies are typical replacement parts on a screw feeder system. The GeoMate vibrator feeder comes with a 3-year warranty.
4) Cleaning – The GeoMate vibratory feeder is easy to empty and clean. Remove one quick-disconnect clamp and the tray swings open for complete cleaning.
5) Safety – As there are no moving parts in the Geomate vibratory feeder, there is no potential for worker injury.
