Regular price $9.00

This tutorial shows the steps necessary to design an centrifugal feeder.


A centrifugal feeder, or ‘rotary feeder’, has a conical central driven rotor surrounded by a circular bowl wall. The feeder separates parts utilizing centrifugal force and the parts revolve with high speed and are pulled to the outside of the bowl.

The design shown in this tutorial is a more sophisticated concept where an inclined revolving disc brings the parts to the rim of a revolving bowl. This concept allows for a series of qualifiers to gently orient the parts for transfer to a downstream process.
