Premitec Scrap Shakers (Shuffle or Friction Transporters)

Premitec Scrap Shakers (Shuffle or Friction Transporters)

Premitec has been selling scrap Shakers (sometimes known as Friction Transporters) for over 10 years,. They have been sold largely to the stamping and metal pressings industry but along the way have been finding new applications for them.

Their flexibility to allow any number of trays to be mounted to them and with a maximum weight of 50kg means they can move anything from a potato crisp to a piece of iron.

Friction transports

The principle behind the Vibratory or Shuffle Conveyor or scrap transporter is a slow acceleration in the forward direction (thus transporting the material forward) and a rapid return stroke leaving the material stationary ensuring movement in one direction only and along the tray.

In addition to being flexible they robust gearbox design means that no matter how severe the environment they will give trouble free service.

How to remove scrap from the back of four mechanical presses and transport into waiting scrap Bin?

The engineers initial thoughts were to use four individual scrap bins or a 14 Mtr conveyor. This could have meant emptying the scrap bins at different times in the day (Very labour intensive) or using a conveyor which may be  initially costly, and costly for the spare belting.

Electro Mechanical Scrap Shaker

The solution was for a Premitec Electro Mechanical Scrap Shaker, positioned to allow the scrap from each press to fall on the horizontal reciprocating scrap tray, which then, due to its vibratory action, transfers the scrap into waiting bins.

As a result the 14 metre length scrap tray is quiet, no belts to fail, no scrap to become jammed in mechanism or belts. This proves that a Scrap Shaker of any length can be used in any industry.
