    VIBRA-DRUM® Grinding Mills

    Vibra-Drum grinding mills are proven in dozens of milling applications in the mining and mineral industries. Grinding processors are achieving impressive energy savings (35-50%), thanks to a unique rotational material motion that is more efficient than conventional ball or rotary mills. New processes such as micron grinding and mechano chemical grinding give our customers a unique and effective competitive advantage.

    Exceptional grinding performance and energy savings are the result of the Vibra-Drum's natural frequency design. A sub-resonant, two mass drive and spring system alternately stores and releases grinding power. Once in motion, energy is only needed to move the grinding media as a fluid mass, and to overcome frictional losses. The Vibra-Drum can be used for processes other than grinding. It has been used to process and agglomerate fiberglass, mix product components, clean castings, for hydrometallurgy, minerals recovery, and other processes.

    Two-Way Vibratory Feeders

    Two-Way feeders from General Kinematics open up a wide range of process possibilities. The two-way's bi-directional conveyance allows you to alternate material flow for multi-directional product processing, for rejection of bad product, or any other process which may require multi-directional conveyance from a single unit. The units completely horizontal stroke shuffles material with no impact and a significant reduction in noise. Available in straight and all new bi-directional curved designs.

    • Uses a single low horsepower drive, reducing energy consumption.
    • Available in curves up to 90 degrees.
    • Horizontal stroke does not damage fragile product.

    Hula-Hopper® Bin Activator / Feeder

    The General Kinematics Hula-Hopper is an improved vibratory equipment concept based on operating principles proven in thousands of General Kinematics installations. Within a single, extremely low headroom unit, Hula-Hopper combines material activation, infinitely variable flow rate control, and positive flow shut-off. Yet installation, service, and operating costs are dramatically lower than for comparable systems.

    Hula-Hopper eliminates many problems associated with more complex, brute force vibratory machinery because of its simplified operating design. As a two-mass vibratory unit, Hula-Hopper uses a low-horsepower motor drive, therefore electric power needs are minimal. Orbital action eliminates compacting and bridging because only material drawn out is activated.

    • Infinitely adjustable flow control using GK's VF wheels or electronic VFD.
    • Extremely low headroom design reduces height requirements.
    • Easy to service design.
    • Backed by GK’s 100% process guarantee.

  10. General Kinematics Corporation

    General Kinematics Corporation

    General Kinematics is the premier vibrating equipment supplier, with capabilities to engineer, design and implement solutions for critical production processes. At GK, our vibratory and rotary equipment is only part of the payoff. It is through the collaborative efforts of our customer relationships that both superior process and product emerge to improve customer profitability, productivity, and product quality . Below are some of the innovative solutions incorporating vibratory equipment technology available from General Kinematics:

    Cooling, Heating, Coating, and Drying
    General Kinematics' vibrating process solutions are exceptionally flexible for a wide range of granular solid and powdered materials and enable multi-functional processes including drying, heating, cooling and coating in a single continuous vibratory unit.

    Vibrating densifiers help fill the volume of your shipping containers using constant, controlled agitation during loading. Sustained vibratory motion settles material by allowing entrapped air to escape. Best of all, it’s all relatively noise-free!

    GK has successfully applied their proprietary vibratory technology incorporating vibration, fluidization, pneumatics, and/or mechanical fingers to accomplish tough separating process objectives. Our extensive testing facilities for separation trials assist in the development of outstanding solutions to demanding separation challenges.

    Our vibratory processors produce an impressive energy savings of 35 to 50 % relative to conventional ball or rotary mills. Combined with lower installation and maintenance costs, the performance and economics of the General Kinematics vibrating processors are incomparable.

    Conveying and Feeding
    General Kinematics can configure vibratory conveying and vibrating feeding systems to fit into your existing process... no matter which direction your material flow needs to go. If you need your material to go up, down, left, or right, GK can apply vibratory technology to get it there efficiently.

    We would like to demonstrate how our unique engineered solutions can be applied to your specific requirements, and ask that you call on our experienced staff for a free, confidential, no obligation, engineering consultation. To begin your process, please visit our website at
