Injection molding is widely used for manufacturing a variety of parts for an array of industries. Part sizes range from the smallest component to entire body panels for cars. Along with the functional parts come runners – otherwise known as scrap. When plastic manufacturers have parts and runners mixed together they need to include parts separation as a way to separate the parts from the scrap plastic.
Dynamic Conveyor, manufacturer of the DynaCon modular conveyor system, now offers its customers three options for parts and runner separation. For optimal parts separation no matter the size and shape of the parts and runners, Dynamic Conveyor offers two types of Tumbler Separators (Sleeve and Fin) and a Lift Pin Separator.
The DynaCon Tumbler Separators offer increased accuracy with parts and runner separation. In addition to separating parts and runner combinations not possible with standard tumbler or drum separators, the two tumbler separators offer increased separation accuracy.
The Sleeve Tumbler Separator features a rotating interchangeable sleeve, with custom holes, to allow for parts and runner separation. The sleeve is inserted into a rotating cage that allows the parts and runners to separate while tumbling. The sleeve can be exchanged for another sleeve, with different sized holes, to meet changing parts separation needs. The interchangeable sleeves can be easily switched in and out in less than 60 seconds.
The Fin Tumbler Separator features a rotating case with adjustable fins that allow for optimal parts and runner separation. The adjustable fins can be easily moved and adjusted to meet many parts separation needs.
Both of the DynaCon tumbler separators are available in cage lengths of 2' and 4' with an adjustable part introduction height from 1-1/2' to 4' tall. The parts separator offers a simple design with no complicated gear mechanisms to jam or break. The tumbler separators are powered by an energy efficient 1/30 HP variable speed brushless motor which is also maintenance free.
The Lift Pin Separator is a small conveyor system where the conveyor belt holds adjustable lift pins that are used to separate the parts from the runners. The Lift Pin Separator comes in a variety of widths. The DynaCon Lift Pin Separator easily adjusts to fit with adjacent conveyors, parts receptacles and runner bins.
All of the DynaCon Separators work well with the DynaCon modular conveyor system in meeting parts handling needs. To learn more about all of Dynamic Conveyor’s products, including video of the parts separation options visit http://www.DynamicConveyor.com or call 1.800.640.6850.
