Martin® Smooth Move™ Linear Feeder

All New!

Gentle, horizontal conveying of bulk materials.  No “Throwing”!

The Martin® Smooth Move™ Vibratory Linear Feeder system is designed for gentle, horizontal conveying of bulk material.  Traditional vibration conveyor systems work on the throwing principle, in which a product is “thrown” forward, following a trajectory parabola.  With the Smooth Move, the material gently slides along the conveyor trough instead, which is made possible by a pneumatic linear drive.  The conveyor output can be adjusted to suit the specific characteristics of the material to be conveyed by regulating the compressed air.

The flat design allows applications even within confined space constraints.  The vibratory feeder trays are available in a variety of materials, including stainless steel, steel or plastic.  And it is possible to couple multiple Smooth Move systems together to handle larger loads or greater distances.

The new Martin® Smooth Move™ Vibratory Linear Feeder is the best way to transfer food, containers, powders and other materials with total control over feeding rates and while handling the material in a moderate manner.  And the easily removable tray makes this the industry’s lowest maintenance feeder.

The most versatile conveyor for your application:

  • Gentle and constant conveying
  • Total control over feeding rate
  • Improved quality of your product
  • Low operating costs
  • Very low noise level
  • Easy to clean
  • No moving parts

No Lubrication Required*

MARTIN® NTS™ Linear Vibrators are lubrication-free, eliminating the use of messy, maintenance-intensive lubricators. No oil mist is discharged into the atmosphere. *Lubrication is required when air is dried by refrigerant method.


Noise levels are 60 to 65dBA, well below regulatory limits.

Energy Efficient

The most energy-efficient horizontal conveyor available.  Instant on, instant off.  Continuously adjustable, with frequency and amplitude that adjust independently.

Sanitary Design

Special coating system sheds material buildup, won’t flake off.


Perfect for high wash down areas.
