General Information:

The Multifeeder ip3 category, Industrial Performance (ip) provides superior high performance and quality in a friction feeder machine. Standard features of the ip3 friction feeders include batch count software and double detection. All ip3 feeders have self- contained computer/microprocessor controllers providing ease of use and versatility in product feeding. An infrared sensor comes with all ip3 feeders for product overlap, but the proprietary “Double Detect Sensor” for true double detection and guarantee correct count is only available on the ip3, and HCP. Designed with a powerful 750 watt one horsepower (optional 1000 watt available) brushless servo motor, computer controller, five different discharge lengths available, plus flexible and open discharge options, makes our friction feeders an industry leader. All of this makes our friction feeders extremely strong and robust for the most demanding applications, with the reliability to provide years of uninterrupted service.

The 350ip3 Friction Feeder machine feeds up to 300mm wide products and is a powerful workhorse friction feeder that provides more width for more common and larger product feeding. An advantage with the 350ip3 is a larger working area over the discharge for added accessories, ideal for tipping and affixing, labeling and other product systems. When large/medium/small products are needed to feed at high-performance specifications, then the 350ip3 is your best choice.
