Things to Stick a Vacuum Mount Vibrator On, Part 1

Recently, Cleveland Vibrator Co. has been working on developing a series of Vacuum Mount Systems for our vibrators.  Typically, these are used for helping flow or clean out on portable hoppers, bins, IBCs, hopper bottom and belly dump trailers, or railcars.  However, our newest release, the Mini Turbine Vacuum Mount series, has a variety of other fun applications that we can demonstrate in our very own plant here.

The first application to look at here is the Vacuum Mount CVT-P-20 being used in our coil making process.  Our line of CM Electromagnetic Vibrators uses encapsulated coils that we make in house.  In that process, we use vibration in order to settle epoxy around the coil in a mold, removing air bubbles and eliminating voids.  Typically, we have used our VJ Vibratory Jogger tables in order to do this.  However, in the video linked here, you can see how the Vacuum Mount CVT-P-20 can be used as well.  While there are some functional differences in this approach (using air power vs electric, and having vibration affixed to the mold rather than jostling or jogging the mold), the results were not dissimilar.  Either approach is very good in making sure our epoxy sets consistently in our mold to totally encapsulate the coil.

Strategic Development at Cleveland Vibrator Co.
Craig Macklin joined Cleveland Vibrator in 2010. His only previous experience with industrial vibration or material handling was infrequent visits to the earthquake exhibit (yes, it was indeed built by Cleveland Vibrator) at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. Though he was previously mired in the world of theoretical, intangible products and services such as Enterprise Content Management and consulting services, he has developed a passion for this industry. His understanding of the value and importance of industrial vibration to numerous industries and applications grows everyday. He enjoys fine, locally roasted espresso drinks and 4-door sedans. He has cried at multiple Browns and Indians games. He once read 2 pages of GEB.
