The design relates to a new improved Reconfigurable Vibrating Screen (RVS) for use in classifying materials such as bulk granular, particulate materials and wet slurries. The RVS uses a simple theory of reconfigurability to increase its capacity and productivity. The innovative RVS machine enhances the screening of mineral particles through its ability to geometrically adjust its structure. Thus, guarantees the adjustment of the RVS machine screen surface so that sufficient quantities of mineral particle products can be processed, considering unpredicted incidents like machine downtime resulting from machine failure and other related operational burdens. At its initial position, the RVS operates in the same manner as the conventional vibrating screen. As the production demand for mineral particles increases, the screen is adjustable to the required capacity.
