VB Series Vibratory Tub Basic Operation

When parts and media are put into the tub of the vibratory machine, the counterweights on the spinning vibrator shaft make the processing tub shake on its springs. This shaking makes the parts and media inside the tub vibrate and roll in an organized way. This action causes parts and media to contact each other, achieving a wide variety of finishing applications from deburring, descaling, polishing, cleaning, and even flash removal. You can control the rolling action by adjusting the speed of the vibrator assembly and the amount of counterweight.
