The operator enters the high and low limits into the controller and then loads bearings into the bulk hopper. Bearings are automatically fed from the bulk hopper to the bearing feeding system. In this case, the customer designated a step feeder. This system may also be provided with a vibratory bowl feeder or vibratory inline feeder. The number of parts in the feed system is automatically monitored and maintained. Bearings in the proper orientation are fed to the bearing diameter sorting station where an LED measures the diameter. Parts are fed from the bearing diameter inspection station to a good / reject part gating system where they exit the system via their respective output chutes.
