Vibration Table Applications Across Industries

Many industries use vibration tables to carry out essential daily tasks. Some of these industries include:

  • Construction: Many construction teams rely on vibration tables for compaction and de-aeration. Materials like concrete and fiberglass are prone to air bubbles during the curing process, weakening structural integrity. De-aerating and compacting make the materials more durable. Vibration tables also help construction teams condense their materials for transport to fit more in a single truckload.
  • Mine and quarry: In mining, operations need to recover valuable materials that can have extremely fine particle sizes. With linear vibration, mining teams can separate materials by their density and particle size to remove unwanted debris and find mined materials like copper, gold, coal and iron. Vibration tables are excellent for improving efficiency in this process and help operations increase the quantity of recovered materials. 
  • Pharmaceuticals: Pharmaceutical manufacturing plants use vibration tables for quality assurance. In particular, pharmaceutical products have highly specific purity requirements for safety and function. Separating medication ingredients with a vibration table removes contaminants to reach those purity requirements. Vibration tables can also be used to mix, portion and compress powders into containers.
  • Food and beverage: Many foods require vibration tables during the packaging process. These tables allow manufacturers to portion out delicate food items like chips or candy. With integrated sensors, a vibration table can assess when a portion has reached the right weight and then shake the product into the packaging. Food and beverage operations can also use vibration tables to remove air bubbles from products like chocolate. 
  • Electronics: In electronic development, vibration tables are valuable for quality control testing. Creating a stressful environment through vibration testing helps manufacturers and engineers understand a product’s tolerances and limits. This type of electronics testing is particularly valuable for automotive and defense applications where a product will be exposed to a rugged environment.

Vibration Tables Tailored to Your Application

Deca Vibrator Industries, Inc. makes it easier to match your vibration table choice to the particular needs of your applications by offering a variety of standard and custom configuration options. We also have substantial experience with various different industries and are willing to consult with you on application-specific requirements.

Protect your investment in better quality outcomes for your products and processes by consulting with one of our representatives on the best vibration table configuration and implementation options for your needs.

We also understand that off-the-shelf options are not always right for your application. As an agile manufacturing partner, we adapt to your demands with fully custom and built-to-spec solutions. We offer custom vibration tables for unique applications. 

Our engineering team will consult with you to understand your use cases and develop a solution that increases productivity, reduces operating costs and maximizes ROI. Our stringent quality standards ensure we deliver a lasting product designed to your unique specifications. 

Vibration Tables We Offer

We carry a broad range of vibration tables, including:

  • Series PC: Our PC Series is a bench-top vibrator designed for quality assurance testing in electronic parts and subassemblies. As a small and economical option, the PC Series works well for smaller operations with lower budgets.
  • Series PCM: The PCM Series vibrators have similar use cases to the PC Series with a greater load and force range. These wide-range capabilities make the PCM Series our most popular bench-top model.
  • Series ST: These floor-mounted vibration test tables are suitable for a wide range of quality assurance and settling applications. Common use cases for the ST Series include detecting faulty components, removing production debris and identifying defective solder joints.
  • Series FVFD and DVGT: These series options are flat deck and grid top vibrators available in custom sizes to meet your demands. 
  • Series TR: Our TR Series vibration tables are portable units that can be used individually or in multiples. Uniform distribution of vibration and high load capacity are the most notable benefits.

Vibration Test Tables

Deca’s Standard Series ST, PCM, and PC vibration tables are designed for quality assurance testing of electronic components and subassemblies.

They can be used in a laboratory environment to test prototype designs for performance reliability or to simulate transportation handling conditions for packaging performance testing. Or they can be mounted in your production facility as an integral part of the manufacturing process to test product quality – e.g., loose or faulty components, defective solder joints, poor electrical contact, etc. They are also useful for helping to remove debris – such as solder residue – from finished units.

These vibration test tables are available in a range of sizes and force profiles to accommodate both small components and larger finished assemblies.

We have a vibrating table to suit your needs.

  • Standard sizes range from bench-top units to freestanding units. Customized sizes and configurations are available on request.
  • Standard unit load ranges up to 400 lbs., standard test force ranges up to 2200 lbs.
  • G-Forces can range from 1G to 15G
  • Displacement can range from 0.01″ to 0.085″
  • Frequency ranges of 10-70 Hz with continuous duty motors; 20-150 Hz with Intermittent duty motors

Vibration Compaction Tables – DV series

Unlike vibrators that are selected from a range of standard units, Deca Vibration Compaction Tables are custom-designed and built according to customer specifications. This enables them to meet both the configuration and performance profiles required for your unique application.

The tables are available in flat-deck or grid-top models, designed to solve a wide variety of processing concerns. They are well suited for settling, increasing density, or compacting bulk materials in shipping containers, boxes, or drums. They are also used in food processing or packaging to de-aerate and settle contents, as well as for de-aeration and consolidation of concrete and refractory materials in molds or forms.

Multiple motor (electric, pneumatic, hydraulic) choices, configurations, and adjustments enable you to create the right combination of vibratory force, frequency, and amplitude to suit your production needs.

Synchronous Vibrators

Although Brecon SL Synchronous Vibrators are not vibration tables in their own right, they can be combined with a variety of precast and prestressed concrete forms to provide the same functionality as a vibratory table for compaction.

Their inverter-controlled synchronous motors can be tuned to provide consistent vibration – within 1 rpm across all units – throughout the full length or diameter of a concrete form for consistent, uniform compaction and superior product finish in less time. These synchronous vibrators are compatible with a variety of precast and prestressed concrete forms, including:

These synchronous vibrators are compatible with a variety of precacst and prestressed concrete forms.

  • Large precast, prestressing wall panel forms – Hamilton, Helser, and Ratec types
  • Manhole, box culvert, septic tank and customized specialty products – Besser, DelZotto, Fitzpatrick, New Hampton types
  • Double T & beam wet-cast forms – Bonnybrook, Helser types

Heavy Duty Trestle Vibration Table Beams TR-Series

Portable Deca heavy-duty trestle vibration beams (also called live-beam vibratory tables) provide a more flexible and quieter alternative to fixed vibration tables. They can be used individually or in multi-unit arrangements to expand flexibility for matching specific application requirements and increasing the quality and consistency of molded or settled products.

  • Four length options – from 47″ to 71″ – provide the strength to handle acceleration forces up to 8Gs, at up to 9,000 rpm.
  • Multiple units can be configured up to fifteen feet apart to handle heavier loads and longer objects.
  • Heavy-duty rubberized compression mounts provide superb stability and solid vibration resistance.
