Our Story

Founded in 1970 to concentrate on products for materials testing used in industrial particle separation. The lead product among its offerings was the “Sonic Sifter” which became a favorite for quality control labs in the dry particle industry. Recognizing the need for high quality test sieves, the company began manufacturing and marketing materials testing equipment – ASTM E11 U.S. Standard test sieves under the ATM brand label.

Later, test sieve inspection and calibration certification reports meeting ASTM E11 and ISO 3310 specifications were pioneered as a result of requests from sieve and production screener customers for more exacting sieve tolerances.

In the early 1990s, the ATM Arrow® Testing Sieve Shaker (now known as DuraTap™) was added to round out our product line for the dry particle separation industry.

In 2002, we purchased a full-service machine shop adding vertical integration to our capabilities. Visit www.advantechmachining.com for more information on our machining, assembly and shipping services. Recognizing our broader capabilities, in 2002 we changed our name from ATM Corporation to Advantech Manufacturing.

May of 2011, we started producing the Meinzer II vibratory table top sieve shaker which complimented our existing product line consisting of the Sonic Sifter and DuraTap™. The electromagnetic drive produces a simultaneous vertical and horizontal movement creating a gentle motion that mimics that of hand sieving processes. This rugged yet lightweight, compact, and easy to use 8″ or 200 mm sieve shaker makes it ideal for a variety of applications. To learn more, please click here.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are your products used for?

  • Sieving is the simplest, quickest and most economical means of particle size distribution analysis. Whether in food, pharma, foundry or cement and aggregate, your raw material particle size is critical to the quality and performance of your finished product.

What is CENTERLINE® sieve certification?

  • By utilizing a sophisticated image analyzer traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), your sieve is scanned for irregularities. Physical measurements are taken in a midpoint orientation of the wire in the X and y directions (warp and weft), and the wire diameters are measured to ensure compliance with the ASTM E11 specification.

Which sieve shaker is best for my needs?

Advantech Mfg. has three sieve shakers to offer; each with very different action on the particle.

  • If gentle, efficient, small sample size sifting is what you need, the Advantech Mfg. L3P Sonic Sifter is a perfect fit. Our L3P utilizes 3” diameter sieves in mesh sizes 5.6mm down to 3um. The oscillating sonic wave provides shorter test times with little particle attrition. The optional vertical and horizontal tapping* helps to redistribute particles on the sieve surface and break up agglomerates.
  • The Advantech Mfg. DuraTap™ is a rugged, oscillating and tapping shaker suitable for 8” (or 200mm) and 12” (or 300mm) diameter testing sieves. Our DuraTap™ is an excellent solution for larger sample sizes where more vigorous shaking and vertical tapping is required for your sample.
  • Does your testing procedure call for vibratory sifting? Then our Meinzer II is the answer. The Meinzer II is a small, portable, tabletop sifter which accommodates 8” or 200mm testing sieves. This model is especially effective with larger particle sizes.

*Horizontal tapping is produced by our L3-N8 Horizontal Pulse Accessory unit, which is a separate optional purchase.
