Air feeders play a pivotal role in various industrial applications, facilitating seamless operations in manufacturing processes. Delving into the intricate workings of these devices unveils a sophisticated operational principle designed to optimize efficiency and productivity.

At Rest:

When the punch reaches the top dead center and is at rest, the following actions occur within the air feeder:

  1. Deactivation of E-Type Electromagnetic Valve: The E-type electromagnetic valve remains unenergized during this phase.
  2. Inactive Micro Switch: The micro switch also remains inactivated.
  3. Air Valve Activation: The air valve opens, enabling the entry of air into the feeder. Simultaneously, the floating rod, fixed clamp plate, and moving clamp (lower) ascend, while the slide block moves towards the front body.

In Motion:

As the punch begins its descent and is in motion, the following sequence of events takes place within the air feeder:

  1. Activation of E-Type Electromagnetic Valve: The E-type electromagnetic valve is energized.
  2. Initiation of Micro Switch: The micro switch starts to activate.
  3. Air Valve Activation: Similar to the resting phase, the air valve opens to allow air into the feeder. Concurrently, the supporting rod, fixed clamp plate, and moving clamp (lower) descend, while the slide block moves backward.

Moreover, it’s worth noting that the E-type electromagnetic valve can be installed alongside the E1-type electromagnetic valve, offering enhanced versatility and functionality:

  1. Synchronized or Asynchronous Action: The action time of both the E-type and E1-type electromagnetic valves can be synchronized or asynchronous, providing flexibility in operation.
  2. Adjustable Timing: The timing of these electromagnetic valves can be freely adjusted, with their protrusions designed to match the required feeding time, thereby accommodating diverse manufacturing needs and specifications.

In essence, understanding the operational intricacies of air feeders not only underscores their significance in industrial settings but also highlights their capability to streamline processes and bolster overall efficiency.
