Continuous parts feeding made simple

Easy customisation for a huge variety of parts

A step-by-step approach to system configuration with an easy-to-use wizard makes it simple to set up the feeder to the exact parameters needed for many different part types.
Multi-axis vibration technology for optimised parts control

Versatile parts compatibility

The Epson Parts Feeder series’ flexible feeding supports a wide array of parts and materials, making it ideal for all sorts of different part types. It can brilliantly handle simple and complex parts ranging from 3mm to 15mm, 5mm to 40mm, 15mm to 60mm and 30mm to 150mm in size, as well as delicate materials.

A super-easy setup allows for quick parts changeover too, cutting down development times and reducing cost of ownership compared to typical feeders. Another big plus is that – unlike bowl feeders – our Epson Parts Feeder series can be used for the parts you need today, as well as those you may want to use in the future.

Vision Guide is used with Epson Parts Feeder software to drive feeder motions and optimise parts singulation.

Precision parts calibration with smart auto-tuning

An intuitive wizard also guides users through customised calibration step-by-step, automatically determining the exact values needed for optimum tuning and calibration.

Part pickup regions maximise parts throughput

Easily set parameters specific to each part, no coding required

Configures feeder orientation to properly select pickup area without need to modify physical application layout

Define part pickup area to optimize cycle time

Part calibration (tuning) wizard reduces tuning time

Automatically computes and displays vibration amplitude and vibration time tuning parameters

3 simple steps to set up flip and separate calibration parameters

Integrated image display window to show part separation results

Epson RC+ 7.0 development interface

Powerful, efficient, intuitive

Thanks to its intuitive Windows control interface, open structure and integrated image processing, programming applications is incredibly quick and easy.
