The Vortex is designed for a higher standard of reliablity and performance that businesses expect out of their investment. This new technology achieves higher productivity due to its reliable and robust design.
The Vortex Auto Adjusting Friction Feeder eliminates many of the problems associated with current state of the art friction feeders. Being completely auto-adjusting for product thickness, the Vortex eliminates time-consuming and skill dependent operator set-up and testing for product changeover. The auto-adjust design results in a highly reliable and robust feeder that assures the best throughput and efficiency available.
Unlike competitor?s friction feeders that use high friction forces to pull the product off the bottom of a high-pressure product stack, the Vortex uses a patent pending low-shear feeding technique that gently lifts the product into the feed and separation area. This means that the Vortex is not sensitive to the amount of product in the stack.
Also the Vortex reliably feeds and controls products that cannot be fed in friction feeders, without marking or damage. This includes softer paper products, embossed products and even some nested materials.
