Determination of a Vibrating Bowl Feeder Dynamic Model and Mechanical Parameters


Vibrating conveyors also named bowl feeders are a common equipment for conveying goods into production systems. These systems are used for the supplying of a certain number of goods to an individual designed interface and simultaneously arranging a correct orientation of the goods conveyed by the same time. This type of conveyor is used in various industries, such as for example automotive industry, electronic industry and medical industry. The target of this article is to determine a dynamic model and mechanical parameters by means of testing, and a numerical simulation of a ready-to-operate conveyor under standard working conditions.
