I am designing a coating system with a conveyor that will dip parts into a solution. Once the part is in the solution, I would like the line and part to vibrate in the solution to make sure the part is coated completely. What do you suggest?

Asked in:

Agitation is sometimes needed in order to coat parts completely. In order for both the line and the part to be vibrated in unison, a rigid mounting system between the part and line is needed. Contact one of our Application… Learn More


We need to vibrate viscous material out of small bottles with small holes. What product would be best for this?

Asked in:

Viscous material is one of the more difficult materials to vibrate due to the product responding to extremely high amplitude, high frequency, or a combination of both. Testing with the material would be required before a recommendation could be made.… Learn More

We fill aerosol cans that require vigorous shaking to mix the product. Currently, we either have people on the filling line pick up the cans and vigorously shake them, or we put cases into a 5-gallon paint shaker and shake them for about 3 minutes. We’d like to automate the shaking in-line during the filling process. Is this something you can help us with?

Asked in:

Using a vibrator to replicate the motion created by manual shaking or using a paint shaker is extremely difficult. Depending on how the product responds to frequency or amplitude would drive our recommendation. Please contact one of our Application Engineers… Learn More


I am interested in using a compaction table to remove air from large drums of molten adhesive. Is this a good solution?

Asked in:

Vibratory tables are the most effective/efficient way of removing air from shipping containers to ensure that you are not paying to ship air. For this application we recommend using a linear non-impacting pneumatic vibrator such as the NTS™ Series to… Learn More
