Vibratory conveyors are often used to align product into rows or lanes, or to orient the product in a certain direction. Classic examples include orienting peach or pear halves into "cup-up" or "cup-down" position for subsequent inspection by people or optical sorters respectively.
  • Drive system can be single- or double-acting eccentric, Ajax shaker, or Vibra-Glide natural frequency
  • Alignment function and size of product determine lane configuration
  • Multiple lanes can converge into one such as when feeding green beans into a transverse slicer
  • Other functions such at pit removal or dewatering can be included in the same machine
