Compactors : Vibratory Compactor

A vibratory compactor is a mechanical device, usually used in the construction industry, that uses the high-speed vibration of a metal plate to crush or compact the material underneath it. The combination of the vibration of the plate and the weight of the compactor delivers significant force to the material beneath the plate, crushing large particles and helping to remove pockets of air from the rest of the material.
