A Study on the Modelling and Simulation of Part Motion in Vibratory Feeding
It is known that vibratory feeders are the most versatile of all hopper feeding devices for small engineering parts and play a key role in assembly automation. This work develops a mathematical model of the part motion in vibratory feeding, from which how the part works can be better known. A computer simulation programmed with MATLAB has been made to predict the conveying velocity of the parts in vibration feeding system, and furthermore, experiments have been carried out for verification purpose. The experimental results show that the simulation results are reasonable, and hence can be used to improve the design of vibratory feeding system.
