Feeding of Small Components Using the Surface Tension of Fluids

Abstract : The feeding of components smaller than 1mm2 is a high challenge in an automated manufacturing line. The surface forces affecting these micro components are getting more important and cause problems when handled. A new method is described using the surface forces for separating, sorting and arranging micro components. The surface shape of fluids and the gravity are used for moving the floating components to defined positions. The components can be arranged in a magazine or can be sorted by a channel system.
