A plate compactor is a very basic machine in construction machinery. It is used to compact soil, granite, and other materials, especially in roadway building, foundation establishing and other construction projects. It is a machine or mechanism used to reduce the size of material such as waste material or biomass through compaction. The plate compactor (vibratory rammer) has a large vibrating base plate and is suited for creating a level grade. It is working in such way that the machine transmission power from the engine to the base plate via a continuously vibrating hammer, a stress forced into the soil and extrude inside air and waste materials to compact soil.

In geotechnical engineering, soil compaction is the process in which a stress applied to a soil causes densification as air is displaced from the pores between the soil grains. When stress is applied that causes densification due to water (or other liquid) being displaced from between the soil grains, then consolidation, not compaction, has occurred. Normally, compaction is the result of heavy machinery compressing the soil. Soil compaction is a vital part of the construction process. It biomass for support of structural entities such as building foundations, roadways, walkways, and earth retaining structures to name a few.
Compactor plates are wider than rammer plates, which means that its weight and compaction force is spread out over a greater area. This plays well to its strength in vibrating base material into place.
