GK Variable Force control makes the difference in feeder performance

The reason General Kinematics PARA-MOUNT II® vibrating feeders are specified by leading facilities is their reliable and precise performance. Part of the reason for the success of the PARA-MOUNT II® vibrating feeder is GK’s proven “VF” Variable Force drive system. GK’s VF counterweight design delivers absolute linear feed control from zero to maximum rates. Together with the resonant frequency design of the PARA-MOUNT II® vibrating feeder, units automatically assure uniform material output regardless of material load changes.

Since the motor operates at constant RPM and full torque all the time, you can “stop and resume” feed at any capacity without material surge. Feed rate change is controlled by varying counterweight effect, not by frequency or RPM changes, assuring a stable, low-stress operation, whether suspension or foot mounted.

VF control means feeders can be installed up to 15 degrees decline and still provide stable flow control. PARA-MOUNT II® feeders also allow for full size hopper openings, which can be used to reduce material bridging.
