A theoretical analysis of synchronization of inertial vibrators of a vibratory conveyor with a dynamic damper is presented in this paper. It is shown that for the over-resonance regime and counter-running drive vibrators, there is only one stable state of the system warranting formation of necessary sectional vibrations of the trough. The analytical form of the momentsynchronizing vibrators is also determined, and on the basis of this, the influence of angular vibrations of the body on the synchronizing process of the drive vibrators is determined. Due to the differences in the participation of angular vibrations in the self-synchronizing process in relation to classical solutions, the presented results fundamentally influence the design of long antiresonance conveyors.
