This research paper is all about the vibratory bolt feeder machine, by using of vibratory system. It describes the assets of vibratory bolt feeder, in short VBF, over the conventional bolt feeder system. Old machine commonly uses in bolt feeding industry. Old system has consisted of several type of trouble. Some of them are, it consist moderate feed rate of bolt as well as drain more energy to operate as compare to vibratory bolt feeder machine. This paper consists of design and development of vibratory bolt feeder machine.it is an integrated model of several parts which first design and later it would be developed. Whole structure of VBF built on round circular plate. On which magnetic coli was mounted and connected with the bowl. Leaf spring connects with bowl to base for provide external support for bowl as well as compensate the force also. Trap is laid inside the bowl through which bolts were feed. It whole machine works on vibration which regulated by controller.
