Maximum speed of a Vibratory Bowl Feeder

The speed of a vibratory bowl feeder is usually mentioned in number of pieces per minute. The maximum speed which can be achieved by a vibratory feeder is dependent upon the components being fed, orientation required, the tendency of the parts to come in the required direction, weight of the parts, the size of the vibratory feeder etc. However, the maximum speed at which a vibratory feeder functions is the same for any size of vibrator (if properly designed and manufactured). The maximum linear speed too which can be achieved is the same. A well designed vibratory feeder can achieve a maximum speed of 8 to 10 metres per minute. Even 10 to 12 metres is possible in case the vibrator and bowl are properly designed and also perfectly tuned.
