• 18 Coating and Linings for Bowl and Part Protection
• Glass Bead Finish, Which Is Standard
• Machined Discharges and Part Sorting Selectors

Horizontal Storage Track

Storage Tracks

We offer two basic styles in part storage tracks, a vibrating powered horizontal feeding track or a down angle gravity feed type, that range from 6" to 60" long. Our storage track options include a track full sensor which turns the bowl on and off as required; or a low track sensor which stops the machine operation to allow part infeed problem correction. All parts being fed are pre-orientated in the feed bowl.

Sound Enclosures

Enclosures are created using 1" tubular steel frame with 16 ga. steel outer panels. Optional items available include Lexan® viewing doors and windows. We line all of our enclosures with a sound deadening foam to reduce noise levels.

Sound Enclosure

Operator Control Panel


Available in aluminum extrusion with a Nema -1 rating or a Nema -12 general purpose enclosure, we offer many controller options in both styles to meet your needs. Solid state controllers are smooth and a reliable power source for feeder bowls, horizontal storage tracks, and bulk storage hoppers.
