General Information:

The Multifeeder v3 category, the Signature Series, (v3) is our economical, cost-effective friction feeder machine. Designed and built with the same quality as our premium feeders, the Signature Series v3 is engineered for lower throughput and speed applications. With a powerful 750 watt one horsepower brushless servo motor, computer controls, and four different discharge lengths available makes the Signature Series friction feeder a top contender in its class. The Signature Series feeders are a strong, robust and reliable lower demand machine for simpler applications providing dependability on the production floor.

The 550v3 Friction Feeder machine is an economical wide-body friction feeder machine. With the wide-body, very large/large/medium irregular carton blanks, flat sheets or products can be easily transported as base products quickly and efficiently to other applications. The 550v3 feeder is designed and built with larger over-sized shafts enabling the feeder for long production runs transporting products to other applications. Tipping and affixing of large size products is ideal for the 550v3. When very large/large/medium size products are needed to feed and high speed is not essential, combined with the cost savings and reliability of the v3, then the 550v3 friction feeder machine is your best choice.
