How fast can a shape feeder produce products? I need to produce a cylinder at 90 ppm and I can’t seem to get it to run that fast. Should I not be using a shape feeder? If I change the interval down below 1 second it doesn’t seem to have an effect. Suggestions?
The bottleneck is probably the out path on the shape feeder so when you use sub 1s interval you will probably need to modify out path as well. Either increase OutPath::Capacity or OutPath::Speed property and you should see be able to create parts on the requested interval.
Thanks very much - that did the trick. Now I have waaaaay to many parts Now I need to tweak this area some until I get the rate I need.
