FINGER-SCREEN™ Vibratory Screeners



The FINGER-SCREEN™ vibratory screener is a patented, non-binding design concept for resource recovery. Our vibratory screeners can be used to separate materials by size, removing small particles from large objects. This process makes it easy for sizing and classifying a wide variety of materials, completing the work of several people in a reduced amount of time. The process also reduces the volume for further sorting by manual (density) or automatic (robotic sensors) methods. This screening separation machine has proven to be highly successful in a wide range of applications that are prone to hang-ups common to conventional wire mesh screening surfaces.



How it works

The superior performance of vibratory processing and the simple jam-proof movement over our unique FINGER-SCREEN™ delivers highly efficient separation and classification. The unit’s vibrating motion spreads material evenly across the deck for maximum flow and separating efficiency. Our team offers vibratory screeners in multiple sizes of separating decks to enhance classification while staggered finger positions help to prevent material bypass, effectively lowering maintenance costs. Screening separation performance is enhanced as material freely cascades through the unit — with less “blinding”, a term referring to the occurrence of materials getting caught in the screen opening. The result: fast, smooth continuous material flow throughout the entire separation and classification process. 



  • Durable and dependable vibrating separator
  • Vibratory motion evenly spreads material for maximum classification efficiency
  • Staggered fingers on the vibratory screener prevent material bypass
  • Cascading material flow helps separate entrapped items
  • Unique “cam-out” surface helps eliminate catching, plugging, and binding
  • No rotating discs to wrap around stringy materials
  • Tapered fingers gradually classify and free tangled materials
  • Open below deck design permits “free fall” of material to lower collecting deck
  • Custom-engineered to meet your specific classification requirements
  • Modular deck construction permits easy deck replacement
  • GK’s Two-Mass technology minimizes horsepower requirements, effectively lowering operating costs

The FINGER-SCREEN™ vibratory screener equipment is available in standard sizes with widths up to 110 inches (2800mm) with custom sizes engineered based on your application. The modular deck is replaceable, further meeting your custom needs. Our FINGER-SCREEN™ vibratory screeners are available as High-Energy Primary or Secondary Screens for use in metal recovery, scrap processing, waste to energy (WTE), municipal solid waste (MSW), forestry, C&D recycling, and other recycling applications. General Kinematics FINGER-SCREEN™ vibratory screener technology exceeds customer performance requirements with high-quality construction and service.
