Reducing noise in vibratory feeders

Noise in the workplace is becoming an increasingly important issue these days and it is hard to avoid the constant advertisements from compensation lawyers seeking clients for hearing loss claims. Vibratory feeders have a reputation for being noisy, RNA's feeders include a number of features to mitigate against this problem.

Reducing noise in vibratory feeders

RNA's drive units offer high performance, but with minimal referred vibration and so low noise levels, most of the time avoiding the need for costly and bulky enclosure, although these can be supplied for particularly noisy parts. The coating department can provide special finishes and acoustic coatings to reduce noise. Polyamide bowls and rotating centres can provide similar benefits.

The RNA range of drive units are also available in CSA/UL approved versions; RNA is the only European manufacturer to offer this as a standard option.

Where RNA really excels is in supplying its standard drive units as a tooled system; a typical system comprises a vibratory bowl feeder and linear feeder combined with a mechanical part separation at the end of the linear system. To learn more about RNA's drive units please go to
