Intelligent and efficient feeding with the EACY FEED from DEPRAG

EACY FEED (Efficient, Assembly, Communication, Yield) is the next generation vibratory spiral feeder. Just in time for the AUTOMATICA, DEPRAG Schulz GmbH from Amberg, Germany present their innovative new development: energy-efficient Industry 4.0-capable feeding machines.

EACY FEED devices are distinguished by dramatic energy savings of 80% in comparison to the previous generation of vibratory spiral feeders, which were themselves already very energy-efficient. There is a smart version available for Smart Factory systems. The extremely high energy efficiency of the EACY FEED is achieved through the low power consumption of the drive using 24 V oscillating magnets. The low voltage enables smooth and trouble-free operation and global application of the EACY FEED devices without the need for country-specific alterations, and they are not affected by network disruptions or varying local power supplies (voltage and frequency). The Industry 4.0-capable EACY FEED version communicates with the DPU (DEPRAG Processing Unit) via a specially developed software module which allows, amongst other things, flexible regulation of frequency and amplitude. The DPU is controlled via TCP/IP, which enables access to the DPU from anywhere in the world via smartphone, tablet or PC.

DEPRAG has set the standard for efficient, intelligent and sustainable production of tomorrow with the EACY FEED. The exceptional product quality guarantees the highest system reliability and this, due to the energy efficiency and Smart Factory capability, is set to stay for the future. EACY FEED incorporates the tried and tested specifications of DEPRAG feeding machines, such as fill level dependent self-regulation, high output and user friendliness. Ensuring the simple and reliable feeding of screws, nuts and other small elements in manual work stations as well as semi or fully automatic systems.

EACY FEED is available in three sizes: 0.15 L, 0.75 L, and 2.5 L.

Come and see for yourself - the next generation of DEPRAG feeders at the AUTOMATICA in Hall A6 / 312.
