    Innovative Feeding Technology

    The innovative Afag feeding technology is essentially based on two supporting pillars. The first is the 3D-CAD-supported design and the milling of polyamide, aluminium and special steel. The other pillar of the Afag technology is based on the system of the vibration force balancing of vibratory feeders. The reactive forces are balanced out by vibrating counter-weights. Spurious vibrations are reduced to a minimum. This world-wide patented and unique principle is only available from Afag.

    • 3D-CAD-supported design and manufacturing 
    • Milled feeder bowls of plastic, aluminium and stainless steel 
    • Vibration force compensation of vibratory feeders.


    Reactive force compensation

    Patented drive technology

    • Compensation of reactive forces in the basic drive unit
    • No transmission of vibration to substructures
    • No interaction between different feeder drives
    • Highest precision at interface
    • No readjustment after maintenance work because of fixation
    • Video Compensation of reactive forces (.swf)

    An essential element of the innovative feeding technology is the 3D-CAD feeder-bowl-technology. Polyamide, aluminium or for special applications also stainless steel feeder bowls are designed on 3D-CAD and manufactured on up-to-date 5-axis milling machines. This technology guarantees the precise adaptation to part specific geometries and tolerances and leads to a 100% reproducibility of the conceived solutions.
