Customer Benefit

The PreFeeder 2500 is the perfect accessory for feeding material to downstream
processing machines. The PreFeeder 2500 feeds material at variable speeds while
minimizing stress to the material being fed. This allows the material to be processed
with the highest possible precision by downstream processing units.

Easy handling when changing spools allows for short changeover time.


Prefeeder loop control with the PreFeederControl 3 instead of the standard
dancer arm type accumulator.


With Dancer Arm Accumulator

  • Flexible wire, cable and tubing up to 12 mm in diameter

With PreFeederControl 3

  • Less flexible materials and larger cables in diameter
