V-Series Universal Friction FeedersŪ
- > V-500

Maximizing inserter net throughput in production mailing environments is vital. The V-500 Universal Friction Feeder® continues our long-standing commitment to improving inserter productivity and job profitability.

Powered by a DC-drive motor and clutch brake, the V-500 delivers speeds of up to 14,000 pieces per hour. Coupled with our patented Differential Friction Technology™, the V-500 provides inserters with powerful material feeding reliability and versatility.

The V-500 is smartly designed to minimize downtime. Setups and changeovers are easily and quickly accomplished with the turn of a knob. A large, 24-inch capacity hopper reduces operator reloading. Even preventative maintenance is simplified with its unique easy access hinged enclosure.

For added utility, the V-500 is also a low-speed solution for ink jet printing, labeling, and tabbing jobs. Variable speed control enables operators to synchronize feed performance. The rugged V-500 is built to last with steel construction and quality precision parts, and is backed by a limited two-year warranty.
