In the area of mechanics and electronics, the behaviors of mechanical systems under periodic loadings have been examined by many researchers. Vertical conveyors are effective examples observing various kinds of parameters of this problem. In this study, primary, subharmonic, and superharmonic responses have been investigated with multiple scales along with numerical methods for vertical conveyors. The change in the parameters of motion, stability condition, and jump phenomena has been shown graphically by Mathematica software for comparing the results. Both analytical and numerical results obtained had good agreement.
