Vibratory Feeding of Cylindrical Parts: A Dynamic Model
The vibratory machines are often used to convey materials in the modern industry, thanks to their ability to guarantee a uniform flow of pieces in automated assembly lines. The principles of motion regarding the slipping of a piece on a plane have been thoroughly investigated. In this paper, we present the model of a cylindrical part moving on an inclined vibratory plane, with the aim of investigating to what extent rolling parts can be fed through vibrations. Experimental results are presented to validate the model.
