Energy-efficient technologies are an important aspect of the development of mechanical engineering. Therefore, the creation of highly efficient vibration technological equipment is an urgent task. There are discrete-continuous inter-resonance vibration machines that have high values of dynamic amplification of oscillations. Rectangular plates or rods are used as the reactive mass of such vibrating machines. However, the rectangular shape of the plate may not be the optimal shape for achieving maximum energy efficiency. To conduct experimental studies of alternative plates with a variable cross-section to determine the optimal shape of the reactive mass of the vibration machine. Methodology. The selection of alternative options of plates with a variable cross-section, which would satisfy the necessary conditions of fastening and the value of the natural frequency of oscillations, was carried out. Experimental studies were carried out on a sample of an inter-resonance vibrating table. The value of the power supply voltage at which loads of different masses were separated from the working body of the vibrating table for each of the plate samples was compared. Findings (results) and originality (novelty). For the first time, experimental studies of the energy efficiency of inter-resonance vibration machines with plates with a variable cross-section installed as a reactive mass were conducted. It was found that the rhomboid shape of the plate is optimal when using it as a continuous section in a vibration machine with an electromagnetic drive. It was determined that the use of diamond-shaped plates as the reactive mass of the vibrating machine can improve the energy efficiency of the inter-resonance vibrating equipment. For further analysis of plates with a variable cross-section as a reactive mass of an inter-resonance vibration machine, it is necessary to calculate and compare their lumped inertia-stiffness parameters.
