This paper presents the conveying velocity on a vibratory conveyor whose track is vibrated by nonsinusoidal vibration. The velocity wave form of the vibrating track is approximated by six straight lines, and five distortion factors of the wave form are defined. Considering the modes of motion of the particle, the mean conveying velocity is calculated for various conditions. Referring to these results, the optimum wave form is clarified analytically. The theoretical results show that the mean conveying velocity is considerably larger than that of ordinary feeders if the proper conveying conditions are chosen. The theoretical results are confirmed by experimental results.
