Linear Feeding Systems

Functional principle of the linear feed 

  • Single/multi-track sorting line: One or more linear lines are used for part alignment
  • Grimm linear conveyors as drive
  • Followed by accumulation line or conveyor belt for transport of aligned parts
  • Design, size and scope are individually adapted to customer-specific requirements
  • Part stocking by hopper system
  • Return of incorrectly positioned parts to the stocking unit possible

Characteristics of Grimm linear feeds

  • Ideal for small to medium size parts by weight with calculable sorting criteria
  • Single/multi-track part feed possible
  • High capacities can be achieved
  • Depending on the part type, several parts variants can be fed with almost no setup effort
  • Suitable for subsequent air blasting or supply processes as well as for transfer to subsequent processing machines
  • Very flexible adaptability to customer requirements due to various designs and compact installation spaces
  • Particularly gentle to parts due to low fall heights
  • Consistent parts dosing and extension of the autonomous running time by combination with hopper system
