Uras Techno, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of electric vibratory motors, has appointed the Cleveland Vibrator Co. (CVC) as its exclusive distributor of rotary electric vibrators in the U.S.
The full line of Uras KEE and SEE rotary electric vibrators is now marketed under the Cleveland Vibrator private label RE and RES line in the U.S. These high-performance, continuous-duty vibrators are used on powering vibratory equipment such as feeders, conveyors, screeners, and tables, and also used as flow aids on bins and hoppers. These products are used in the foundry, food, agriculture, aggregate, concrete, mining, recycling, and powder bulk industries.
“Uras honored us with this exclusive agreement and we believe the quality of the product aligns perfectly with the high standards of Cleveland Vibrator,” says Craig Macklin, CVC vice president of sales and marketing. “Since the agreement, we added enhancements to the Uras line to improve the usability, longevity, and durability of these already reliable vibrators.
“We have had more than three decades of good experience to know the quality of the Uras vibrator and value our long-standing relationship,” Macklin added. “By becoming the exclusive distributor in the United States, we are forging a stronger commitment to each other and the USA market.”
Uras Techno president Shoji Hashimoto observes this exclusive agreement gives Uras enhanced market commitment to the U.S. “Cleveland Vibrator is a proven partner with high integrity when serving customers,” he said. “Their recent improvements to stock and area coverage make us confident and proud to have them as our exclusive distributor.”
The rotary electric vibrator built by Uras includs features such as an anti-vibration lead cable, fully adjustable force outputs up to 100 percent rather than limited to set stop points, fully-enclosed construction (TENV), and stronger motor shaft with less deflection and continuous-duty rating for long service life in harsh conditions.
Cleveland Vibrator added more value to the units with Grade 5 mounting fasteners, higher IP ratings, and upgraded paint specs.
CVC now offers more than 50 models in the RE and RES line of rotary electric vibrators available in single- or three-phase AC power for 110V, 230/460V, 380V, and CSA-approved 575V. Depending upon the model, force outputs range from 30 to more than 46,000 lb. The units run at average of 58 dbA at 4 ft. Included in this line are 2-pole (3600 RPM), 4-pole (1800 RPM), 6-pole (1200 RPM), and 8-pole (900 RPM) configurations.
The Uras vibrators were launched in 1959 and more than 830,000 units have been purchased to date. According to Macklin, Uras wanted to consolidate its U.S. distributorship with one long-term partner and chose CVC because of its commitment to product delivery and customer satisfaction.
“More than 85 percent of orders we receive can be shipped within one business day,” Macklin said. “The numerous models we now offer in the rotary electric vibrators category meet the varied needs of our customers, especially the OEMs. The agreement with Uras allows us to offer products that feature a long service life, easy maintenance, and high reliability.”
