Disentangling and feeding equipment from R A Rodriguez
21 November 2015
The new range of MAFU Automation disentangling and feeding equipment from R A Rodriguez allows users to sort, feed and accurately place non-sensitive parts regardless of their size, material or geometry.
At the heart of the MAFU disentangling is its drum system. Bulk goods such as springs, pins and bent-wire parts are fed into the drum via a funnel and its rotation allows parts to be gently disentangled and released to the outlet.
A variety of hopper systems are available for bulk feeding and also a wide choice of different drum designs and sizes to suit the application. These include antistatic, sieve and acrylic options.
After disentangling, the individual parts are released onto a choice of patented separation systems according to the nature of the product and how it is to be further processed. Examples are output via tube for springs, pins and sleeves; on-rail threading for circlips or rings and on-rail hanging for screws, rivets and nails.
A significant advantage of the MAFU technology is ability for one disentangling system to work with multiple tracks; up to 40 tracks have been installed for a European customer. Additionally the tracks can be equipped with a variety of sensors and image processing systems for process and quality control.
