PreFeeder 1000

Prefeeding Machine Dereeler Type


The PreFeeder 1000 handles 300 mm (11.81'') reels weighing up to 20 kg (44.4 lbs.) and is ideal for tension-free prefeeding to an automatic wire and cable processing machine.

  • Accepts reels or loose coils of wire
  • Feed rate automatically adjusts to the rate of demand
  • Motorized reel for tension-free dereeling

Application Range

The universal bench top prefeeder, the PreFeeder 1000, is designed for constant and tension free dereeling of a wide variety of cable. 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 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 can be integrated as easily into a processing line as a stand-alone system.
