EDEM Vibrating Conveyors

Vibrating Conveyors

EDEM vibrating conveyors are used around the world to convey, sort, and screen materials for many different industries, including Wood Processing, Food Processing, Recycling, Pulp & Paper, Engineered Wood and Foundries. Vibrating Conveyors provide a more even flow of material than can be achieved with belt conveyors. In addition, our Metal Detectors and Magnet Traps enable us to screen out undesirable materials from the production process.

EDEM manufactured by Optimil Machinery Inc. and sold around the world through Distributors and Engineering Consultants, who are aware of the unique capabilities and the quality and support offered to each customer. Our goal is to work with each customer to meet their specific conveying needs. With over 1000 vibrating conveyors in operation around the world, we have the experience to solve your conveying challenges.

EDEM Product Line

The heart of every EDEM Medium, Heavy and Extra Heavy duty vibrating conveyor is our rugged coil spring/eccentric shaft drive assembly. While simple in design, our coil springs are noted for their outstanding performance, and the unique EDEM design has the lowest horsepower requirement of any drive on the market today. Power is provided by a premium, TEFC electric motor and standard “V-Belt” drive. Each conveyor is custom designed and engineered to suit the customer’s exact requirements.

Coil Spring Vibrating Conveyors

All EDEM Medium, Heavy and Extra Heavy duty vibrating conveyors are available in both unbalanced and dynamically balanced configurations.

Leaf Spring Vibrating Conveyors

When you need reliability for the Light to Medium duty application, EDEM Leaf Spring Conveyors provide excellent value, and are available in booth unbalanced and dynamically balanced configurations.

Perforated Plate

We offer a perforated plate to screen low volumes of smaller particles from the flow, which will result in even greater productivity.

Finger Screen

For unmatched simplicity and reliability look to our newest screen designs

  • Non-Blinding
  • No Moving Parts
  • Easy To Install / Service / Replace
  • Custom Designed For Your Requirements

Suitable for screening difficult materials such as pin chips, sawdust from chips, OSB furnish, strand board furnish etc. Finger screens can separate anything from small trimblocks from larger blocks to sawdust from pin chips.

EDEM Magnet Trap

(US PAT NO. 5,100,538)

Our Patented Magnet Trap is used to remove smaller pieces of iron and steel (tramp metal) before they reach the Metal Detector. The system is only shut down to remove the larger pieces. The result is increased productivity and the elimination of damage caused by attempts to alleviate shutdowns when the operator reduces the sensitivity of the Metal Detector.

Stroke Monitor


  • Sensor detects Ovestroking and Understroking conditions.
  • Stroke Monitor sends an immediate alarm to the customer’s PLC.
  • Protect all of your conveyors with only one PLC
  • Eliminate unnecessary wear and tear on the conveyor parts.
