PreFeeder 1000 MX

Prefeeding Machine Dereeler Type


The PreFeeder 1000 MX handles 300 mm (11.81'') reels weighing up to 20 kg (44.4 lbs.) and has been specifically adapted for very thin wires ranging from 0.4 to 3.5 mm (0.016" - 0.137") outer diameter.

Application Range

The universal bench top dereeler, PreFeeder 1000 MX, is designed for constant and tension-free dereeling of thin cables. Due to an electronic control system, which is activated with a pendulum arm, the feed rate automatically adjusts to the actual requirement of any downline machine (e.g. cutting and stripping machines). The PreFeeder 1000 MX works as an active cable dereeler. The integrated dancer arm allows stress- and tension-free feeding of cable. Thanks to the closed loop concept, the PreFeeder 1000 MX can be integrated as easily into a processing line as a stand-alone system.

More Info


  • Specifically designed for actively dereeling micro-coaxial cables
  • Extremely suitable for dereeling thin cables
  • Optimal cable transport due to adjustable dereeling motor
  • Standard serial interface for connection to cutting and stripping machines, forcing the entire installation to an immediate stop in case of any malfunction within the cable feed
