Older in design than the round bowl vibratory finishing machine, the tub or trough type machine is rectangular in shape comparable to a traditional bath tub or horse trough. The primary difference between the bowl and tub is that these days’ tubs are generally dedicated to low volume production, large parts finishing. A less fundamental difference of a practical nature is that as a general rule tub machines (unless of the through feed automated type) need to have the finished parts placed manually in the machines for finishing then removed the same way. Fixturing of larger parts means that these machines are capable of finishing large heavy parts -even heavy mining equipment gears and the like.

Tub vibrators can be used to finish very long parts, sometimes over 4000mm in length or the machines can be temporarily or permanently divided into a series of sections called compartments – the sizes of which can be varied longitudinally to suit varying component size.

When very long parts are involved, or more than one type of media is needed frequently tub units are often used.

Both the round and tub vibratory machines have open tops, making parts and media removal simple.

VT Series

Our extensive “VT” range trough machines are constructed and designed for extreme, heavy duty use and comprise a rigid metal tub which is lined with “hot poured” polyurethane.

Voltage-120v Single Phase or 220V CE Single Phase
-415v on VT16,20, & 24
Total Capacity-2 to 24 cubic feet
Machine Construction-The vibratory tub/trough system is an all welded structure manufactured from mild steel and mounted on coil compression springs.  The tub itself is stress relieved and lined with cast polyurethane elastomer with a minimum wall thickness of 18mm and hot cured at 110 C. Shore hardness on wear areas is 65XD with a UTS of 30MPa and UE of 450%.  The material resists all common acids.
Motor-Direct, foot mounted vibration motor.  Fitted as an integral part of the machine, this specially constructed unit is designed for use on either 220/230V/1ph/50-60Hz supply.  Nominal rating is 0.75kW-2.2kW.
Base-Heavy duty SHS construction
Control BoxIP65 rated programmable control unit that is designed to allow the machine to operate from a single-phase mains input. The unit allows variable process control speeds. Forward and reverse functions and incorporates a mains isolator.
