Bespoke disentangling

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

The 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.

Bulk goods such as springs, pins and bent-wire parts are fed into the drum via a funnel. The drum’s 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 feature of the MAFU technology is the ability for one disentangling system to work with multiple tracks.Each track can be equipped with a variety of sensors and image processing systems for process and quality control.
