Brute Force / Direct-Drive Shakeouts

From the inception of using vibration to shakeout castings, Brute Force Shakeouts have been utilized as an affordable solution to removing sand from castings. For over 50 years, GK has been perfecting this design, delivering a refined machine that is ready to work for you as soon as it is installed.

Used in simplicity of attaching two eccentrically weighted motors mounted directly to the vibratory mass, the General Kinematics Brute Force Shakeout makes your drive as simplistic as possible. For larger capacity systems, Two-Mass Shakeout technology is also available.
