Glebar already makes the most reliable feeder for Guidewire on the market using tried-and-tested vacuum feeding technology. Now we've transformed it into a stand-alone device which can seamlessly connect and feed parts into existing third-party or Glebar grinders. We've also upgraded the control system and added a 7-inch color HMI for simple and easy access to all aspects of feeder operation, which would traditionally be set from the HMI on the grinder. The feeder allows multiple modes of operation, including a completely standalone cycling mode that doesn't require any signals from a grinder. The Glebar Guidewire Feeding System is designed to feed long products, such as Guidewires, Catheter Bodies and Metal Tubing to secondary process devices like laser marking or stamping machines, into any machine, printer etc.
Compatible Glebar machines are:
TF-9DHD Micro Grinder
The control software is entirely developed at Glebar and is fully customizable to address your application and process. The intuitive touch screen interface allows for ease of use and flexibility. The controls include lot and batch counters, multiple modes of operation and all parameters accessible from full color 7" screen.
The GSF Stand-Alone Guidewire Feeding System features an optical sensor for locating wire tip, a servo-driven pinch roller motor for accurate wire positioning and simple interfacing with third-party or Glebar grinders.
Integrates laser marking process directly into the cell.
Built specific for the part; integrated into the cell.
System engineered and developed by Glebar to separate the incoming parts and inspect each part individually at a fast rate (as fast as 2 parts-per-second in a recent case study) after exiting the vibratory bowl as a continuous row of parts.
Provides the capability to grind nitinol wire directly off a spool. The feeder pulls and cuts wire to user determined length, and feeds it to the grinding machine.
Wire loader and unloader interfaced to the machine control. Feeder will pick wires out of a bin, load them into machine, stage next part during grinding and unload finished part.
Material staging trays for preground and finished ground wire
