Vibrating feeders, more commonly referred to as vibratory feeders, vibrating feeders convey parts or bulk material through various stages of finishing, packaging and recycling by means of vibration. Unlike pneumatic conveying, screw conveying and standard belt conveying, vibrating conveying offers solutions for moving delicate or sticky food materials without causing liquefying or damage due to shearing or rough handling.
Vibrating feeders offer low-maintenance parts and material handling, as vibratory conveyors and bowls use no moving parts except the vibrating drive installed beneath the bowl or feeder pan, away from contaminating materials.
There are two main types of vibrating feeders: vibrating bowl feeders and vibrating conveyors. Vibrating bowl feeders are used extensively by small parts manufacturers as an extremely efficient means of orienting products for further finishing or for distribution. Originally designed by pharmaceutical companies to count, sort and organize pills, bowl feeders also orient fasteners, ammunition, o-rings, molded rubber parts, toothpaste caps and many other small parts for packaging or finishing.
Vibrating conveyors, on the other hand, are used for powder and bulk material handling in a range of industries, including pharmaceutical, agricultural and food processing. Additionally, recycling industries use vibratory conveyors extensively to convey and sort materials such as plastic, wood, crushed cement and metals for reclamation.
Overall, vibrating feeders provide an ergonomic solution to monotonous and physically strenuous sorting tasks.
