Compact and Versatile Feeder

The MFT Automation ip3 Industrial Performance (ip) friction feeders provide superior high-performance and quality.

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.

Multifeeder ip3 and HCP feeders come standard with a proprietary Double Detect Sensor for true double detection to guarantee correct count. The v3 Signature Series feeders come standard with an infrared sensor to detect product overlap, and can upgrade to the Double Detect Sensor.

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 Maultifeeder 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 Multifeeder 250ip3 friction feeder machine is a compact and versatile machine. The small footprint enables this feeder to better integrate into your production line. The compact size of the 250ip3 feeder is an advantage for this feeder while still providing all the same quality and performance of the larger machines.

When small products are needed to feed at high-performance specifications, then the 250ip3 is your best choice.
