Belt pre-feeders constitute the ideal solution for handling large parts as they have increased hopper capacity. Hopper length and size are adapted to the client’s specific requirements. This type of pre-feeder is an excellent alternative to a vibratory pre-feeder, especially given its quieter operation and smoother control. This primarily applies in the handling of metal and heavier parts.
The conveyor belt is driven by an electric motor and is controlled by a variable frequency drive, which allows for both the speed and the smoothness of belt operation to be adjusted. The conveyor belt itself is made of a PVC material and the surface may be smooth or have a profiled anti-slip finish that ensures better adhesion of parts.
