New Video from Eriez® Provides Instructions for Tuning Small Vibratory Feeders

Erie, PA --- A new video from Eriez® demonstrates the basic concepts for tuning Eriez’ small vibratory feeders. The three and a half minute video can be viewed from the Eriez website at or from the company’s YouTube channel at

In the video, Rob Yandrick, Product Manager—Vibratory/Screening, explains that tuning a vibratory feeder is the means of mechanically adjusting the unit, with its tray, to the desired displacement at full voltage. While the video demonstration features Eriez’ 46-C and HS-46 Vibratory Feeders, Yandrick clarifies that the same guidelines apply to all Eriez compact vibratory feeders.

According to the video, tuning is accomplished by changing the stiffness of the tuning spring stack. The stiffness is adjusted by adding or subtracting leaf springs and/or increasing or decreasing spring thickness. Yandrick walks viewers through the entire tuning process from start to finish, offering detailed instructions and helpful tips along the way.

Eriez offers a selection of videos featuring vibratory feeders, all of which can be viewed at “Video demonstrations are just another part of our commitment to providing customers with educational resources to support proper equipment selection and use,” says Yandrick.
