This paper treats a method of calculating natural frequency of vibratory feeders. In a bowl-type feeder, the deformation of the spring is complicated and the exact calculation of its constant is difficult. Therefore an approximate calculation is presented under some assumptions. The relations between spring constant and spring setting condition are clarified and shown in various diagrams. The equations of natural frequency for the fixed type and the semi-floating type feeder are represented briefly. The vibration direction of bowl-type feeder is also discussed. The theoretical results are confirmed by experimental studies.
