The feeder uses quick stop and high-conveying speed capabilities to improve efficiency in packaging, weighing, batching and bagging operations. Designed for use with many weigh scale and packaging machines. Features a low profile design; unique “wedge” shaped body that allows feeder arrangement in small diameter weigh scale systems; and narrow width that makes it well suited for in-line scales. Electromagnetic design enables the system to operate virtually silently. Can be provided with all stainless steel hardware for wet environments.
