Our Line of Prefeeders

Shibuya Hoppmann has been building, designing and improving upon a variety of prefeeders for years, and we have a wide selection that meet your part specific requirements.

We have created two overhead prefeeders that utilize a live bottom belt system, the LB-01 and the LB-03/06. These prefeeders are designed to handle small to medium sized parts, and are engineered to directly interface with small style parts feeders.

The EP-series elevating prefeeders handle small, medium and large parts, and deliver product at belt speeds between 23 and 35 feet per minute. The elevating prefeeders use cleated belts at varying pitches and heights to bring product from the floor level up into the feeding application.

The innovative horizontal discharge, elevating prefeeder, the EH-08, was deisgned using a modular, plastic, cleated chain to vertically and horizontally transport parts. The EH style prefeeder's multidimensional discharge is closer to the feeder bowl, eliminating the potential for scraping or scuffing parts, and is able to reach over existing equipment via the horizontal discharge chute.

Our specialty prefeeders were designed with the user in mind, and manage a range of difficult to handle parts.

The trough-style prefeeders, such as the WB-06 and TP-30 use flat conveyor belts to deliver more fragile or intricate parts into your feeding application. This style is ideal for parts that tangle or nest within one another.

Large parts prefeeders, like the WEP-40, WEP-80 and WEP-120, are designed with independently controlled variable speed drives, which control the live bottom hopper belt and cleated elevating belt. The hopper capacities are large and the average belt speed of 23 feet per minute, combined with the cleat pitch of 12", allows for maximum product loading.
