The MSF Mid-range Stick Feeder delivers components to a pick position with a high degree of accuracy and repeatability.
The feeder is designed to integrate easily with the existing Panasonic CM4xx, CM6xx and NPM assembly equipment.
The components are originally stored in Sticks, which are stacked in the feeder magazine. The bottom Stick in the stack is singled out from the rest of the stack.
A small pusher then enters the back of the bottom Stick. It pushes the components out at the front onto the feeder rail where they are lined up.
At the end of the feeder rail is the pick position where the components are offered for further processing.
