If a particular manufacturing process involves parts that have a higher tendency to jam in a conventional hopper, a floor hopper elevator is typically employed.
Prefeeders elevate parts from a floor hopper elevator into the feeder bowl in order to achieve the desired height. Depending on usage, one part or a certain amount of material is released for its part in the process. While this concept is very basic to the manufacturing process, not every system is up to par.
