Abstract

Vibration conveyors are technical systems which generate a stream of materials on basis of vibrations. The vibrations lead to continuous change between acceleration forces and friction. In the practical operation high conveying speeds shall be accomplished with a defined use of the driving force. In this article a simulation model in the software SimulationX is introduced which utilities basic mechanical correlations to calculate the conveying speed. With the help of the presented model influences of vibration movement curve on the conveying speed can be portrayed and analyzed.
