Podmores vibratory linear feeders conveyors handle a variety of products, from the finest powders, or the smallest diamonds, to large quarry rocks. Our linear feeders and conveyors bridge the gaps between your existing manufacturing processes and provide you with the maximum control over your required feeding rates. Vibratory linear feeders and conveyors are manufactured in a wide range of shapes and sizes and many differing levels of finish and quality.
Available in high or low frequency varieties constructed out of mild steel, stainless steel or plastic trays; Podmores' vibratory linear feeders and conveyors require minimal maintenance. Feeders can be left open or completely sealed and use dust-tight construction methods making them great for powders. Sound reduction can be incorporated into your vibratory linear feeders to reduce the impact of handling particularly noisy products.
Sieving and grading (sizing) operations can be carried out in the same machine and with the long-life electro-magnetic coils installed you can infinitely adjust the speed of the unit. Woven mesh screens, perforated plates or wedge-wire screens can be used to remove unwanted product if necessary perfecting your automated quality control.
- No moving parts
- Easy to clean, suitable for powders
- Simple maintenance
- Instant start and stop for complete control
- Long-life rugged construction, suitable for 24/7 operation
Podmores vibratory linear feeders come tuned to get the best possible performance for your product. All products handle slightly differently and we use our 80 years of experience to get your vibratory linear feeder running evenly over the whole width. This makes our vibratory linear feeders excellent for feeding into other processes where you need to ensure a continuous supply of your product.
Podmores vibratory linear feeders use only a high-end epoxy fiberglass composite laminate material to provide the best performance. These springs have major advantages over coil springs such as increased life span, no gaps to get fingers stuck in, less noise. When stopping the machine, laminated springs also provide almost no 'wobble' whereas coil springs will continue to move in the path they were vibrating until they come to a natural stop.
Podmores use the correct material for your product. As standard mild steel is used throughout but you can select stainless steel contact parts or a complete stainless steel machine. You can select from a wide range of finishing options, including micron finished suitable for extremely fine powders.
The electromagnetic coil is placed in a sealed housing which increases its performance, protects it and ensures the highest level of safety for operators. Coils come in a variety of voltages and power options to suit your requirements.
As standard a Podmores Smart Controller is used which allows you full control over the operation of the vibratory linear feeder. The controller is IP54 rated and can be configured for different voltages. When you need more control Podmores can supply complete control systems for your entire production line, giving you a centralised control point for every machine. We can also provide our vibratory linear feeders without controls or ready to be used by your existing equipment.
Podmores vibratory linear feeders can be manufactured for ATEX zones. Please get in touch to discuss your particular application and ATEX requirements.
Hoppers can be added to a vibratory linear feeder making them Hopper Unloaders. Hopper Unloaders allow you to easily fill the machine by hand and means there is always a supply of product for the next part of your production line. Fill them up with product and leave them to unload.
Linear feeders are perfect for automated systems and we regularly incorporate them into complex processes. See how your automated requirements can be solved by looking at our automated systems page.
Like our vibratory feeders, but for heavy duty applications. Our Heavy Duty range are ideal for quarry use and heavy or damaging products.
Using the same principle as a vibratory feeder, out screens and graders sort, sift and refine your product.
Turn a box full of your product into organised lanes, ready for all sorts of secondary processes, such as counting, sorting, grading, coating, enrobing etc.
