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.
