WORLD-CLASS PRODUCT HANDLING EQUIPMENT

Vibratory feeders are ideal for delivering an even and consistent flow of product between production processes.

Electromagnetic Drives

 

Our linear vibrating feeders are powered by enclosed drive units.

Two types of drives are available:

High Frequency

Our standard unit suitable for most applications. This drive operates at 50 Hz and gives a tray amplitude of 1.5mm.

The high frequency and small amplitude offers greater control when stopping and re-starting product flow.

High Deflection

The more specialized high deflection drive operates at a lower frequency of 30 Hz, and a tray amplitude of 4.5mm.

The greater amplitude is able to convey large and loose particles, which may not move on low amplitude systems.

Key Advantages

  1. Enclosed Drive Units – The drive units are IP54 rated, protecting the internal components from dust and moisture.
  2. Controls – Controller can be supplied loose or incorporated into control panels, set to respond to signals from processing equipment, such as multihead weighers and mixers.
  3. Multi Drive Systems – Multiple drives can be fitted for large systems, all wired to the same controller.

Simple & Reliable

Gough’s inline feeders are designed to operate with almost zero maintenance.

Feeder tray design is kept simple for easy cleaning.

The electromagnetic coil and magnet are encapsulated in epoxy to eliminate movement for trouble-free operation, and long-life composite springs are included as standard.

In the rare event a drive fails, they can be unbolted and a replacement fitted by site technicians, with no need for re-tuning.
