FA1 Pick & Place Feeder

Originally designed for the TF1, TF1e, and TF1pro blister machines, the FA1 feeder is perfect for low to medium tablet count feeding applications on any blister machine.

The feeder uses gentle rotary flaps to align product in a feed track. Then product is aligned to the blister cavity layout and vacuum picked from the feed track by a servo actuated arm where it is gently placed in the blister cavity.
