HE-machine supplies three types of high-speed mechanical feeder machines. There are mechanical roller feeders, mechanical gripper feeders, mechanical gear feeders.
Mechanical Roller Feeder
A mechanical roller feeder is a conventional coil feeder powered by the press machine. It doesn’t need electricity or air supply, which is energy-saving and low costing. You may need some time to install a roller feeder. But when it starts work, it always performs excellent, with high precision, super low failure rate, and very few maintenances.
Gripper Feeder Mechanical
Unlike the mechanical roller feeder, the gripper feeder uses a linear motion to move the metal strip. It has two clamps powered by an air cylinder to move forward and returns. We also provide a servo-drive gripper feeder machine. It makes no noise and will not be left any mark on the material. So it’s perfect for sensitive surface strips, such as aluminum, stainless steel, and a wide range of secondary processing material.
The gear feeder is a specially designed press feeder for the electrical steel stamping process. It’s a cam drive feeder and changes different gears to adjust the feeding length. Unlike the 500SPM high-speed servo feeder at a high cost, the gear feeder is affordable for high-speed lamination stamping.
The following table is a comparison of the different types of the mechanical feeder from HE-machine.
