Scrap Shaker

  • The Multi Tray Scrap Shaker

    The Multi Tray Scrap Shaker, sometime known as the Vibratory Scrap Shaker or the Electro Mechanical Scrap Shaker is the right unit for linear scrap removal from many types of presses.

    The principle behind the Vibratory Conveyor or scrap transporter utilizes the ‘table cloth effect’ a slow acceleration in the forward stroke (material is transported forward) and a rapid return stroke material will remain stationary), so ensuring movement in one direction only.

    Due to its compact design, the Vibratory Scrap Shaker may be installed in confined, congested areas. Unlike many other transporters, shuttles or traditional conveyors, the Vibratory Scrap Shaker does not need to be located in close proximity to the tool. The scrap removal trays can be located close to the ‘action’ but the Vibratory Conveyor power unit can be a safe distance away.

    The Vibratory Scrap Conveyor or linear scrap transporter can be used with a long single tray stretching some 10 metres or more depending on width, but is also adaptable for multi-tray installations,such as in the example top right Multiple Trays. The Vibratory Conveyors simple, robust and flexible design ensures safety, reliability, efficiency and cost effective choice.

    The Vibratory Scrap Conveyor is easily adaptable to meet your requirements. A selection of trays can be mounted on the unit. Common ‘low profile’ trays can be used for different tools and applications. The length of the trays presents no problem. If using trays over 3 metres, linear bearing supports can be provided.

    Optional Features Include:

    The Vibratory Conveyor transports parts along an assembly line or removes scrap from beneath machine tools, especially suited where conventional conveyors cannot be used. (Low profile trays).

    The concept of the electro mechanical Vibratory Conveyor or linear scrap transporter was inspired by the needs of the pressing and blanking industry to employ a robust, silent, reliable, safe and effective way to automate material remova from the underside of press tools and dies.l.

    Today, the Vibratory Conveyors or Multi Tray Scrap Shakers can be found in many other applications which are ideally suited for this method of transportation such as in casting, foundry, machine tools and pharmaceutical industries. Many of which have replaced conventional belt conveyors.

    The Vibratory Conveyor or linear scrap transporter is sometimes known as a transporter or shuttle unit, and with the aid of 30 degree angle in the scrap trays, material can be made to be transported to the left or right, alowing part sorting to be carried out.

  • Benefits of the Low Profile Vibratory Scrap Conveyor include:

    • The Electro Mechanical Scrap Shaker is Very Cost Effective
    • No Mechanical Springs. No air required.
    • Continuous cyclical motion of the scrap shaker ensures extremely low maintenance
    • No air consumption – Low noise typically below 69 dbA
    • No conveyor belts to fail
    • Scrap or products are transported at 4.5 metres/minute.
    • Swing away & quick release units – SMED
    • Quick Clamps for fast tray removal
    • Maximum weight of Scrap or Product Trays is up to 50Kg
    • Transports scrap horizontally. No incline needed.

    Having had poor experience with the pneumatic shakers, we purchased our first Electro Mechanical Scrap Shaker in 2006. Due to its robustness we have purchased more and would happily recommend them to others.
