Mikron Polyfeed

Component feeding is one of the major factor in product assembly efficiency. When facing difficult parts to be fed or multiple variants, Mikron has the solution : Polyfeed – the high flexible feeding system

You can count on it for unmatched flexibility, short delivery time, reusability and speed. Mikron Polyfeed is a flexible feeding system based on the use of visual recognition and vertical vibration systems to identify parts in their various forms and positions. The feeding speed can reach 80 parts/min, depending on component design, with component sizes from 1 to 50 mm cube size.

From chaos to order in 5 steps

  1. Two different parts can be loaded in bulk into the buffer
  2. Parts drop by vibration from buffer onto a selection plate
  3. The selection plate is vibrated at specific frequencies and amplitudes to agitate the components.
  4. A vision system inspects the components on the selection plate and identifies which are laying in a position suitable for being picked. The coordinates are sent to the 4-axis robot.
  5. The robot picks all identified components placing them in the proper orientation to a part nest. Operations are repeated alternately on two selection plates to ensure a non stop feeding.
